Series: Stork

Author: Wendy Delsol

Summary: Sixteen-year-old Katla LeBlanc has just moved from Los Angeles to Minnesota. As if it weren’t enough that her trendy fashion sense draws stares, Katla soon finds out that she’s a Stork, a member of a mysterious order of women tasked with a very unique duty. But Katla’s biggest challenge may be finding her flock at a new school. But as Homecoming approaches, Katla uncovers a shocking secret about her past — a secret that binds her fate to Jack’s, the cute farm-boy that Katla has an argumentative relationship with, in a way neither could have ever anticipated.
