Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Winter 2009 Kids' List
“Transplanted to Maine after her father's death, Zara finds herself tangled up with an attractively dangerous pixie boy, a pack of were-creatures, and the risk of eternal imprisonment. It's a page-turning story with real heft as Zara mourns, adapts to her new school, and navigates her fate.”
-- Mark David Bradshaw, Watermark Books, Wichita, KS


Description

Zara collects phobias the way other girls collect Facebook friends. Little wonder, since life’s been pretty rough so far. Her father left, her stepfather just died, and her mother’s pretty much checked out. Now Zara’s living with her grandmother in sleepy, cold Maine so that she stays “safe.” Zara doesn’t think she’s in danger; she thinks her mother can’t deal.

Wrong. Turns out that guy she sees everywhere, the one leaving trails of gold glitter, isn’t a figment of her imagination. He’s a pixie—and not the cute, lovable kind with wings. He’s the kind who has dreadful, uncontrollable needs. And he’s trailing Zara.

With suspense, romance, and paranormal themes, this exciting breakout novel has readers rapidly turning the pages.
