As a section from their enterprise, they find that June has an irregular power, she can change her shape. They need to collaborate together battling against a researcher who need to know the mystery behind June's capacity.
Slowburn pacing casts a spell, too, and if June and Harry never convince as Yorkshire's answer to Romeo and Juliet, the mystery swirling around the former's supernatural abilities is undeniably riveting.
Balancing the solid romance and the tantalizing genre elements, with nicely restrained effects... and reliance on acting, makes The Innocents one of the strongest entries in the semi-magical YA metaphor-drama genre.
