Water Song

Water Song by Suzanne Weyn B-

"Young, beautiful, and wealthy, Emma Pennington is accustomed to a very comfortable life. Although war rages abroad, she hardly feels its effect. She and her mother travel from their home in Britain to the family estate in Belgium, never imagining that the war could reach them there. But it does.

Soon Emma finds herself stranded in a war-torn country, utterly alone. Enemy troops fight to take over her estate, leaving her with no way to reach her family, and no way out.

With all of her attention focused on survival and escape, Emma hardly expects to find love. But the war will teach her that life is unpredictable, people aren't always what they seem, and magic is lurking everywhere."

-Back of the book

This book was cleaver because it said it was a retelling of "The frog prince" but it's not a fantasy. I also liked it a lot because there was a big, suspenseful, event at the begging and it last all through out the book. And the writing skills made the book sound like it was written in the 1940th when really it's just a few years old. I liked this book and recommend it to ages 13-100 It's something any fairytale, or historical fiction lover would enjoy.
