The CallThe Call by Peadar Ó Guilín

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Set in an alternate version of Ireland, this story follows Nessa, a young girl suffering from the effects of polio. She is in survival school as during adolescence, all children will be Called, suddenly forced to fight for their lives in the grey land against the Sidhe, whose touch can bend and shape the human body like it was clay. This YA novel is grim and gruesome at times, but also entertaining, engaging, and fast-paced.
