Family secrets. Lost memories. And the arrival of an ancient magical ability that will reveal everything.Sixteen-year-old Katla LeBlanc has just moved from Los Angeles to Minnesota. As if it weren’t enough that her trendy fashion sense draws stares, Katla soon finds out that she’s a Stork, a member of a mysterious order of women tasked with a very unique duty. But Katla’s biggest challenge may be finding her flock at a new school. Between being ignored by Wade, the arrogant jock she stupidly fooled around with, and constantly arguing with gorgeous farm boy and editor-in-chief Jack, Katla is relieved when her assignment as the school paper’s fashion columnist brings with it some much-needed friendship. But as Homecoming approaches, Katla uncovers a shocking secret about her past — a secret that binds her fate to Jack’s in a way neither could have ever anticipated. With a nod to Hans Christian Andersen and inspired by Norse lore, Wendy Delsol’s debut novel introduces a hip and witty heroine who finds herself tail-feathers deep in small-town life.

Enjoyed this well enough...but based on future reviews, I don't think I will be checking out the sequels.
Found this one when raiding my shelf. Will try to get to it soon.
This was super cute. I really liked the fun tone that prevailed throughout. Kayla was witty and sweet. The plot wandered a bit, but not too bad. The whole idea of human stork and Icelandic myth was different. I wouldn't have labeled it as a paranormal romance. It's more of a coming of age story.
I loved this freaking book! Review to come soon @ http://myenchantedbookshelf.blogspot.com
