I saw this book on a Goodreads giveaway a while back and didn’t win it, but ever since I saw it I HAD to read it! It was something about the cover that just drew me in! Then when this book came up for Book Tour by YA Bound Books, I had to sign up!

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.

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.

My Thoughts: 

Such a cute story! I really enjoyed reading this book and finding out what would happen to Thumbelina! Its hard to forget someone you are really interested in, especially when you are forced into love because of a TV show! Think about what that would be like- you are really interested in someone and they seem to be interested in you and then all of a sudden you have to forget them and start being interested in some guys you just met. I mean I get that they were “made” for Thumbelina, but still! The heart wants what it wants! This is definitely a really good book and I highly recommend it!

  1. I’m glad you liked this one. I saw this before, and I liked the concept behind it. I was supposed to sign up for the tour too, but I felt too busy at the time. I hope I can get a copy soon, AND actually have the time to read it. 😛
