What if you wandered out of a forest, 6 years old and no memory of who you are. G was that girl, 12 years on she still lives in the orphanage with her best friend Priyam. However, things soon change when a new teacher starts at school and G soon learns more about Mother Nature.
Whilst there quite a few books out there with a similar theme, this book had something different. G had not got the perfect life, with an unusual name and an odd birthmark, she was a target for bullies. However, she loved her life, having a strong affiliation with animals, she thought it was nothing having animals following her home. The only strange thing was she had a tree called Bobby. Priyam was a true best friend, a bit of a geek, she was very protective over G and would fight her battles for her at school and when the time came for G to leave, Priyam thought nothing of packing her bags and going with her.
As you read this story you are following G on a journey of discovery. As she learns more about her former life and her predicted future, you see her take everything in her stride. There were times when things did not go to plan and it was funny seeing how she had to adapt. Being with the Six was the closest thing she had to a family and as each had a different element, it was interesting to see what they did with their gifts. There is a budding love interest but there are choices G needs to make. Each of the Six had their own characteristics and I enjoyed how even though they were all different, they were really close. Hunter was one of the Six I want to know more about and I hope that we get to learn more about their history further in the series.
The author had descriptive style that made even the boring actions like setting up camp more magical and you could imagine being with G. This is a perfect book for fantasy lovers and as it is YA can suit all ages. The story captured me from page one and I was transported into an animated adventure. I have now picked up book 2 so I can carry on the G’s adventure.
