This book makes you wonder if there is another world with elves.... If there isn't then where did the Atlantis theories come from???

This is one of my favorite series ever! The cast of characters is great! The first book is kind of like Harry Potter, so much so that I was like, "Hmmm, is this a recreation of Hogwarts?" there are lots of similarities between the two books, such as a magical school with an awe-inspiring campus, however, later in the series, it kind of branches out. Also, this book is suitable for any age really, though they are long in length, there isn't a ton of complexity, so you could probably read it anywhere from third grade to high school. However, in order to get some of the references in it (such as the council's slight corruptness, people being judged by their abilities etc.) you would need to be older to understand it. Otherwise, it's a great book! (Also, team Fitzphie forever!)

"Do you wonder why you were hidden with humans?"
Her mind darted unwillingly to Prentice. "My real parents must've wanted to get rid of me," she whispered

"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 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.
