“What a great modern day twist on typical fairy stories! Laurel is that newbie high school girl who happens to find out she's really a fairy. Never believing in that sort of thing she finds herself in situations and adventures she never dreamed of. I can't wait for the sequel!”
— Hallie Wilkins, Anderson's Bookshop, Naperville, IL
Laurel was mesmerized, staring at the pale things with wide eyes. They were terrifyingly beautifultoo beautiful for words.
Laurel turned to the mirror again, her eyes on the hovering petals that floated beside her head. They looked almost like wings.
In this extraordinary tale of magic and intrigue, romance and danger, everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever.
