Paranormal romance follows much the same narrative path - the attractive, yet difficult, female protagonist falls for the mysterious stranger with dark secrets, and Switched is no exception.

Wendy Everly comes to terms with her whole life being a lie, and with the help of Finn Holmes discovers a world beyond her knowledge. That said, there were enough surprises to keep even a paranormal romance sceptic interested, and the writing is quick-paced and casual enough to make reading fast and fun.

There has been a lot of talk about this remarkable book: a successful self-published e-book, famed for being a multi-million e-copy seller before being picked up by a publishing house. It’s already been successful in a way that few books ever have – it’s a piece of literary history.
