The basic premise is that of an Amish community and a girl who wants to leave it. But it’s not religion holding this community together and firmly rooted in the past, but magic. Mostly fear of magic and magical creatures and the belief that keeping traditions will keep them safe. For the main character, though, the faeries are legends and her family oppressors who believe in wild superstitions. When a boy she likes asks to be in a trial marriage with her it seems like she could be getting the ally she so desperately needs and some freedom as well... The worldbuilding is good and captivating but I didn’t feel it went anywhere interesting.

*-SPOILERS-* It seriously worries me how Larbalestier teenage girls keep getting happy pregnancies. I’d praise it as original but it creeps me out and I think it’s unrealistic both*
