Switched is the first book in the Trylle Trilogy, it follows a young girl named Wendy who is really a changeling. All her life Wendy has been different than any one else, when she was six her mother was convinced that she wasn’t her real child so she tries to kill Wendy. When Wendy is seventeen a boy named Finn shows up and tells her that she was really was switched at birth and that she needs to go back to her real home. Wendy goes with Finn after being attacked, she goes with Finn and finds out she is royalty. Wendy doesn’t feel like she fits in at her new home either and there are people who are trying to keep her from becoming queen. Her love for Finn is forbidden but she is willing to give up anything to be with him. While Wendy is trying to figure out where she fits into this new world or if she even wants to be there, new threats arrive and change everything for her. I loved this book Wendy was smart and snarky, she wanted to change things and she didn't follow people blindly. Finn was a bit annoying, Wendy is trying to change things and he hanging on to old beliefs. This book was one of the better first books in a series that I have read. The characters were well rounded and the story really pulls you in from the beginning. I wanted to know what happened to the characters and I was mad because I didn't want the book to end.
