Blog Tour Review&Giveaway: Damselfly by Jennie Bates Bozic


Damselfly (Damselfly #1)
Release Date: 11/11/13

Summary from Goodreads:
In 2065, the Lilliput Project created Lina - the first six-inch-tall winged girl - as the solution to a worldwide energy and food crisis. Isolated in a compound amidst the forests of Denmark, Lina has grown up aware of only one purpose: learn how to survive in a world filled with hawks, bumblebees, and loneliness. However, on the eve of her sixteenth birthday, she discovers that she’s not the only teenager her size. Six 'Toms' were created shortly after Lina, and now her creators need to prove to the world that tiny people are the next logical step in human evolution. In other words, they need to prove that reproduction is possible.

Um. No thanks. Lina's already fallen in love with a boy she met online named Jack. Only he has no idea that thumbelina1847 could literally fit inside his heart.

When her creators threaten to hurt Jack unless she chooses a husband from among the ‘Toms’, Lina agrees to star in a reality TV series. Once the episodes begin to air, the secret of her size is out. Cut off from any contact with the outside world, Lina assumes Jack is no longer interested. After all, what guy would want to date a girl he can’t even kiss?

Slowly, very slowly, she befriends the six young men who see her as their only ticket to happiness. Perhaps she can make just one guy’s dream of love and companionship come true. But her creators have a few more twists in store for her that she never thought possible.

She’s not the only one playing to the cameras.

Damselfly was so stinkin' adorable!! Lina is our main character, she's sweet, spunky, and only six inches tall. All her life all she has dreamed about is being free from the cage she lives in. And she literally lives in a cage. 

On her sixteenth birthday she is in for a huge surprise. Just when she thought she was going to be set free to be with her true love Jack, fate has another plan for her in store. Instead, Lina is going to be apart of a bachelorette type show with six toms, the male counterpart of her. Six toms to one. 

But why would she want any of them when she wants Jack? Oh, right because Jack is a normal size human being who has no idea of her true nature. 

Well sit back ladies and gentlemen because Jack and the whole entire world are about to know all about Thumbalina and the Toms!

As I stated above, this was so stinkin cute! I enjoyed it every step of the way. There were some parts that were somewhat slow and the beginning was also kind of slow. But all in all it was an enjoyable read. I look forward to the next book, if there are any!

If you enjoy sweet fairy tale like stories and a quirky female lead, Damselfly is for you!!

3.5 stars

About the Author
I'm a visual effects artist for film and television by day, and at night I don my author cape and pen stories for the YA crowd. I love a good fairy tale, especially if there's a creepy twist, so that's what I write.

I met my husband in the World of Warcraft and we live in Los Angeles with our cat. We spend our time playing video games, reading, hiking, sweeping up cat hair, and cursing the terrible traffic.

I have a bachelor's degree in Religion and Philosophy from Hillsdale College, and some of my past jobs have included: swimming lessons teacher, lifeguard, furniture salesperson, barista, and loan officer. I was especially terrible at the loan officer bit and that's what prompted me to make a major change and go off to Canada to get a diploma in 3D Animation and Visual Effects. After that, I moved to Los Angeles by myself and roomed with two crazy sisters I found on Craigslist. But that's another tale.
