I happened across this book by accident, when searching for Room by Emma Donoghue. And was glad I did. The first book by this author, who happens to be a speech writer.
The Stolen Child tells the story of two individuals, one, Henry Day, is a human child, and the other, a changeling, kidnaps Henry Day and replaces him in his family. Thuss the changeling becomes a human child and Henry Day becomes the newest of the changeling children. The book follows them both as they each try to make sense of their new places in the world.
The book was really interesting, and I liked how each chapter alternated narrations between the two boys. It's the same story from two separate perspectives. In order to help the reader follow, each of the former Henry Day's chapters are distinguished by a picture of a tree.
Very interesting read!! I think it's the most PG rating of my book list thuss far, but there are some sexual references and situations, but language overall is mild.
