The Half Child

Written by: Kathleen Hersom

First line: It is cuckoo time in the year of our Lord 1700.

Why you should read this book: Lucy loves her weird, vivacious, troublesome little sister, even though everyone else in their village and most of her family seem to think that young Sarah is a changeling left by the fairies. When Sarah disappears, everyone encourages Lucy to forget about the girl, but Sarah never quite gives up hope. Even when she meets a boy who seems to have some idea of what might have happened to Sarah, Lucy knows that the world is magical and full of possibilities.

Why you shouldn't read this book: It's not exactly a happy ending, but it's not exactly and unhappy ending either.
