Wren is afraid of marked ones. Their steely demeanors and the wings on their backs send a cold shiver down her spine. She knows they don't have it easy. The very lucky ones end up as guardians of the caravan. The unlucky ones end up reaver food.
          
Just when she's gotten used to their presence, the childhood friend that abandoned her suddenly reappears, sporting wings on his back and harboring dark secrets. Wren can't just forgive him for the awful things he did to her, and she tries to distance herself, but she is forced back into his life when she runs to the other side of the caravan to escape the arranged marriage her family has plotted for months.
          
But the people on the other side are destitute, hungry, and angry. They're resentful of the guardsmen who do nothing to protect them, and of the merchants who pay them to turn their heads. And some of them are angry with her. She finds herself trapped in a conflict she did not ask to be involved with, for a goal that was never hers. 
          
An unpleasant surprise forces her back home just in time for an uprising to erupt, then spill into her backyard. With her best friend nowhere to be found and her parents gone as well, her childhood adversary may be the only one who is able to help her.

This sentence isn't phrased like a question, so it should end in a period.

Wow. This was an AMAZING first chapter, seriously. I didn't find any errors, your descriptions were fabulous, and I absolutely loved the concept of people growing wings.

Also, I believe the last punctuation should be a question mark, since it's essentially "how many miles from home was he?"

Okay, the first thing that I am going to comment is that I have the same name as the main character. This is a coincidence, and I'm waiting to see if I save the world! Already hooked because, duh, I'm the heroine!
How big are the wings? Like huge angel wings? Or small tiny wings?
Super vague. Your summary is also incredibly long. In that and this first chapter, I never felt like I got to the action, which turns a lot of readers off. I kind of feel like I wasted my time reading because you never really got to the point.
