EXTRAORDINARY BY NANCY WERLIN PDF

Phoebe Rothschild—yes, of those Rothschilds—dumps her toxic friends for new girl Mallory in seventh grade. After four years of best friendship, Mallory is gorgeous and stylish—and, unbeknownst to Phoebe, she's also not human. In brief snippets between chapters, readers learn that Mallory has been sent by the faerie queene to manipulate Phoebe for some dark purpose. When Mallory fails or refuses to bring Phoebe into line, the faeries send Mallory's brother Ryland, who glamours Phoebe into dazed, romantic compliance. This is no typical paranormal romance: Phoebe's conviction of Ryland's shimmering worth and her belief that she is unworthy are portrayed as uncannily dreadful. This proudly Jewish fantasy offers a compelling tale of friendship and a refreshing antidote to faerie stories about that one special girl deserving of supernatural love.

Written by: Kimberly Francisco on November 23, Its plot seemed very similar in tone to Impossible and I worried that I would encounter the same contrived characters and unrealistic dialogue. I expected to pick up the book, read a couple of chapters, and give up on it immediately. Phoebe Rothschild is the daughter of a very rich and successful woman. She knows that her parents expect extraordinary things from her, and it can be daunting at times. Luckily for her, she has a best friend in Mallory Tolliver, and the two girls help each other battle the trials of adolescence.

He glamors Phoebe into thinking she has fallen in love with him and commits several acts of psychological torture upon her, attempting to wreck her self esteem and crush her perception of herself. Whether Mallory allows Ryland to destroy her friend whom she has grown to love, and whether Phoebe herself can find a way to fight back, is the crux of the story.

Despite my initial misgivings about the book, there were a couple of things that convinced me to give it a shot. First, the cover is beautiful. Some excellent characterization, particularly in the relationship between Mallory and Phoebe, also marks this as a much better effort than Impossible. Phoebe struggles with feeling overshadowed by her brilliant mother, her talented father, and her beautiful friend, and it is her perception of herself as extraordinary or ordinary that ultimately determines her fate.

As a teenager, I struggled daily with my own self-esteem and perception of myself, trying to determine if I was special or merely ordinary. For the reader who appreciates both genres or is willing to give anything new a shot, Extraordinary should hit home. Obviously, I was pretty impressed with this one.

Extraordinary

Title: Extraordinary. Phoebe finds herself drawn to Mallory, the strange and secretive new kid in school, and the two girls become as close as sisters. Ryland has an immediate, exciting hold on Phoebe — but a dangerous hold, for she begins to question her feelings about her best friend and, worse, about herself. Phoebe is a single child, a sweet and genuinely kind girl, and a beloved daughter to her powerful mother and gentle father. Above all else, Pheobe is a Rothschild ; the youngest descendent in a long line of powerful, remarkable — even extraordinary — men and women. In comparison to her mother, Phoebe is just Phoebe — not dauntingly intelligent, not heartbreakingly beautiful or remarkably witty. Ever since her youth, Phoebe has felt self-conscious of the pressures and responsibilities that come with being a Rothschild, but her heart has ever been in the right place.
