Summary: Quinn Robbins' life was everything she thought a teenager's should be. She has good friends, a family that she loves, good grades, and an after-school job she enjoys. And, she's just been asked out by Zander Cunningham, a popular football player and great guy. But one day when driving home after picking up her little sister from the baby-sitter's, she nearly hits a boy who, after running blindly into the street, mysteriously disappears.
The mystery only deepens as she figures out who the boy is; William Rose, a reclusive, awkward boy from school who always has his nose in a pile of books.
As she becomes more aware of his behavior it becomes more obvious how out of the ordinary William is and how hard he deliberately tries to blend into the background. This only intrigues her more and she finds herself working to find out more about him, and exactly where he keeps disappearing to.
On a whim one night she follows him and suddenly finds herself in a new world. One where William is a prince, literally, and she is treated like a princess. She also discovers that she is stuck; the gate back to her own world isn't always open.Quinn finds herself smack in the middle of a modern-day fairy tale, on a course that will change her life forever.

Thoughts: I’ve been in a mood where I don’t really feel like reading much lately, like I just don’t want to sit down and actually read a book. However, I knew I had this coming up for a blog tour so I sat down and forced myself to read a chapter. Funnily enough, I took a break from the book and noticed that I was on page 50 already. It was so easy to just fly through this book that I finished it in one sitting no troubles.
The story itself is really entertaining. It’s slightly different to your run of the mill story and I really enjoyed it even though it wasn’t what I had expected.
The characters are all really awesome. I loved Quinn and I could understand why she was acting weirdly after almost hitting someone with her car. I know I would feel weird about that and probably act strangely for a few days.
The writing is really simplistic but effective. It allowed me to just fly through the pages and I was having a lot of fun reading through it.
Overall, I really enjoyed reading Seeds of Discover and I am looking forward to reading the next book in the story. It was so good and I had a lot of fun reading it.
