The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff

Goodreads Summary:
Mackie Doyle is not one of us. Though he lives in the small town of Gentry, he comes from a world of tunnels and black murky water, a world of living dead girls ruled by a little tattooed princess. He is a Replacement, left in the crib of a human baby sixteen years ago. Now, because of fatal allergies to iron, blood, and consecrated ground, Mackie is fighting to survive in the human world.

Mackie would give anything to live among us, to practice on his bass or spend time with his crush, Tate. But when Tate's baby sister goes missing, Mackie is drawn irrevocably into the underworld of Gentry, known as Mayhem. He must face the dark creatures of the Slag Heaps and find his rightful place, in our world, or theirs

My Review:

The Replacement is about a high school boy named Mackie. He doesn't fit in anywhere not with his friends, not with his family and not with the town. He lives in the small town of Gentry, a town with many secrets.

Over all I liked this book. She did a great job of conveying how Mackie was feeling. I felt kind of down while I was reading this book. Mackie was dealing with a lot, including too much iron exposure, not fitting in anywhere, and normal teenage angst.

I like how Mackie's sister Emma loved him unconditionally. She didn't care that he was replacement she loved him anyway. She wanted to help him even if that meant going to the others.

Tate was another favorite of mine. She had just enough psycho in her to make her really interesting. I would not want to get on her bad side.

Even though Mackie didn't feel like he fit in with his friends they were there for him when he needed them.
