Review: THE SWEETEST DARK by Shana Abé

Canadian Bookworm has reviewed The Sweetest Dark by Shana Abé for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s an excerpt:

This is the first teen novel, launching a new series. This is a book of both historical fiction and the paranormal. Set in the first year of World War I in England, it focuses on Eleanore Jones (Lora), who was found at the age of ten on the streets of London and grew up in an orphanage. Lora always felt herself different than other children, and heard the sound of singing around her all the time. When her orphanage is destroyed in the war, she finds that she has been given a place in an elite girls school on the coast. There, she finally learns of her true nature, that of a drakon.
