Wings by Aprilynne Pike

I enjoyed having this laid-back read after my last one!  
It's light, entertaining, and creative.
Oh! and it really made me crave home-jarred peaches and garden fresh veggies - good thing I was covered! 

First Line: Laurel's shoes flipped a cheerful rhythm that defied her dark mood.

Laurel is in a new school, in a new town; but it's more than that.  At 15-yrs-old this is her first time in a public school, ever!  She notices how differently she looks, how differently she eats and struggles to fit in.  She is befriended by the likable and easy-going David and even through beginning resistance they become good friends.  Just as she is feeling comfortable and getting into the routine of things she discovers a lump on her back.  Life really gets interesting when the lump blossoms and she is left with a wing like flower growing out of her back.  She embarks on a journey of self-discovery, budding romances, and of heroics.  Saving her dying father, her family estate, and the gateway to Avalon.
