Description

Since the dawn of time, the Faerie have taken. . . .

Seventeen-year-old actress Kelley Winslow always thought faeries were just something from childhood stories. Then she meets Sonny Flannery. He's a changeling a mortal taken as an infant and raised among Faerie and within short order he's turned Kelley's heart inside out and her life upside down.

For Kelley's beloved Central Park isn't just a park it's a gateway between her ordinary city and the Faerie's dangerous, bewitching Otherworld. Now Kelley's eyes are opening not just to the Faerie that surround her, but to the heritage that awaits her . . . a destiny both wondrous and strange.



Praise For Wondrous Strange

“This enchanting first novel weaves together the worlds of theater and magic in a way that is sure to please fans of both. Readers will revel in the hints of Shakespeare within the text as they are introduced to faerie creatures both familiar and “wondrous strange.”
-School Library Journal

“Kelley is appealingly feisty and stubborn, and her romance with Sonny develops quickly but believably. ... With an ending that promises a sequel, this book will capture readers eager for romance, magic, and suspense.”
-ALA Booklist

“Plentiful action, a complex, slow-to-unravel setup, and humorous plot strands (such as the fairy horse that follows Kelley home to live in her bathroom) ensure that the pages keep turning in this clever debut.”
-The Horn Book

“Oh, bestselling Twilight, thou hast a strong contender...this book has it all.”
-Globe and Mail (Toronto)
