I really liked the premise of this story, and the characters of Lily and Scout were well written. I love friendships like that, and I have a soft spot for the outcasts. This would have earned more stars, but it felt like the first half of the book dragged, the explanation of magic and how their society is set up was a little rushed. I would still recommend this book and I am eagerly awaiting the second book. I am hoping to see a little more of the romance that is started at the end as well!
