What I liked about this book: It was a new spin on an old fairy tale, throwing in a bit of history to give the story a little believability factor.
Phoebe finds herself drawn to Mallory, the strange and secretive new kid in school, and the two girls become as close as sisters . . . until Mallory's magnetic older brother, Ryland, shows up during their junior year. Ryland has an immediate, exciting hold on Phoebe, but a dangerous hold, for she begins to question her feelings about her best friend and, worse, about herself.
Soon she'll discover the shocking truth about Ryland and Mallory: that these two are visitors from the faerie realm who have come to collect on an age-old debt.
What I liked about the characters: The best friend, Mallory. She's a confused fairy suddenly dropped into the mortal world. She wears stuff all wrong... like a see-through Halloween costume with no panties. And inside-out shirts. Totally believable.
What made this book stand out: The main character, Phoebe. She's so down to earth normal--in a good way--that you feel like you live next door to her.
