The Lost Years of Merlin by T.A. Barron

When Emrys washes ashore on an Island, unable to remember his past, he is taken by Branwen, who claims to be his mother. To discover his identity and his powers, Emrys must go to Fincayra, a land between earth and sky that is being destroyed. With some friends to guide him, Emrys will learn that Fincayra's fate and his are connected.

I loved the main characters' personalities. Emrys was a strong-willed boy who was determined to finish his quest. Rhia loved nature and Druma Woods and would do anything to try to save her home. Trouble loved to fight. And Shim wanted to be tall. The part that really grabbed me is that by working together, they managed to have their goals achieved. -Natalie M.
