About A Girl by Sarah McCarry
The author's writing style is beautiful and delightful to read. The story is the third in a series and I have not read the other two books, and if I had read them, I might have understood this one better. It is a YA paranormal romance entwining mythological characters into the story. The main character, Tally, is essentially magically induced to go on a plane trip across the country to find a man who used to be a musician so she can learn about her mother who had abandoned her at birth leaving her on the doorstep of her best friend. She thinks the musician may be her father. Once there, she is drawn to a beautiful girl named Maddy, who she has a torrid affair with. We don't really learn who or what Maddy really is, but she, like some of the other characters is something mythical and supernatural. I wish that the paranormal parts had been explained more clearly. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
