4.5 stars. I couldn't quite
bring myself to give this five stars because it didn't completely engulf me, but it was better than most of the books I've given four stars lately. This was a beautifully sad story about a boy stolen by the changelings, the changeling who took his place, and the little ways their paths cross over the years. This is a book about love, family and secrets. Haunting, sad, beautifully told, short and simple. Everyone should read this book.
