Pike weaves an enthralling story of danger and love. This re-interpretation of the faerie story is one that will captivate readers with its plausibility and imagination.
Laurel never believed in fairy tales, and at 15 she thinks that there's been enough upheaval in her life lately, what with her family's recent move and her first time attending public school. Then one morning she wakes up with a bump on her back, and her world changes forever. With only her new friend David by her side, Laurel is catapulted into a world of faeries, trolls and magic that she can scarcely comprehend. But she'll have to learn fast to save not only the faeries but also her father's life. (HARPERTEEN, May, 304 pp., $16.99, ISBN: 9780061668036, HC, 12 and Up)
