L-O-V-E!
I love this series!!!!
Ages 10+, not that it’s inappropriate or anything, I just don’t think younger kids would like it as much, because of the romance and length. But I mean, I started it when I was 11, so what do I knows?

I (Loved) this book it was the best . Never read a book that had elves in it.
The best part about it was when she found out that she was an elf and went to their planet🪐 . and when she got to the lost cities she saw things she'd never seen before.
tried things she never tried before.

This is like the best series ever!!!!!!!!!!!
It's perfect for middle schoolers and maybe high schoolers.
It doesn't have a ton of fantasy. I wouldn't say it has magic in it. It just has different powers. I'm a middle schooler and one of my friends recommended this series to me. I was so sad that I had to wait for books to come in cause they were on hold. I just wanted to read these books back to back.
I can't wait till fall when book 9 come out!!

Sexual Content: There is some crushes and kissing through out the series.

Other: 1. This book cannot be put down until you have finished it. 2. there is a little bit of violence in the series, so I would not recommend this to younger children 3. There is a little crushing and feelings and stuff, so if you are uncomfortable reading this kind of stuff, I suggest you don't start this series.

Other: This is an amazing book, the reader won't be able to put it down without major medical attention. I will say this: if you are a parent and would prefer it if your kids did not read books with girls having crushes on guys you may want to steer clear of this series

“That’s not your decision to make,” Emery informed him with a smile.

"Okay" she agreed. If he refused to be serious, so would she. "Fine. I'm an elf. Am I supposed to help Frodo destroy the ring and save Middle-earth? Or do I have to make toys for the North Pole?" - Sophie Foster

Sophie Foster is a 12-year old girl, but she is hiding something. Ever since age five, she has had the ability to read minds. Suddenly, she meets a boy named Fitz. He tells her that there is nothing wrong with her brain. She is an elf, and a Telepath. Sophie is whisked into a world of adventure, intensity, and magic. This book will almost always get you hooked, if you're reading it for the first or 100th time.
P.S. Go Team Foster-Keefe-Vacker-Diznee!

Sophie foster is a 12 year who is in high school. She's never fit in at school or at home. But that all changes when she meets a smart (and super cute) boy who takes her to a place with people just like her. She quickly makes friends. But even a perfect world has it's faults...

white_bird_77 Jun 16, 2016

Sophie Foster, a 12-year-old high school senior, is hated by her classmates. She never really belonged or fit in anywhere…until a mysterious boy arrives and shows her that there's a place where she belongs. Suddenly her whole life changes. But just because she belongs doesn't mean that everyone likes her. It also doesn't mean that she's so safe, either…

Twelve-year-old Sophie has never quite fit into her life. She’s skipped multiple grades and doesn’t really connect with the older kids at school, but she’s not comfortable with her family, either. The reason? Sophie’s a Telepath, someone who can read minds. No one knows her secret—at least, that’s what she thinks…

But the day Sophie meets Fitz, a mysterious (and adorable) boy, she learns she’s not alone. He’s a Telepath too, and it turns out the reason she has never felt at home is that, well…she isn’t. Fitz opens Sophie’s eyes to a shocking truth, and she is forced to leave behind her family for a new life in a place that is vastly different from what she has ever known.

But Sophie still has secrets, and they’re buried deep in her memory for good reason: The answers are dangerous and in high-demand. What is her true identity, and why was she hidden among humans? The truth could mean life or death—and time is running out.
