From the Publisher:
Sixteen-year-old Kaye, who has been visited by faeries since childhood, discovers that she herself is a magical faerie creature with a special destiny, in a briskly paced modern-day fantasy filled with angst-ridden teens, romance, and dashing dark heroes. An ALA Best Book for Young Adults. Reprint.Welcome to the realm of very scary faeries!

Sixteen-year-old Kaye is a modern nomad. Fierce and independent, she travels from city to city with her mother's rock band until an ominous attack forces Kaye back to her childhood home. There, amid the industrial, blue-collar New Jersey backdrop, Kaye soon finds herself an unwilling pawn in an ancient power struggle between two rival faerie kingdoms -- a struggle that could very well mean her death.

Annotation:
Intense romance, the unexpected dangers of faeries, and transformation make up Holly Black's wonderfully enjoyable young adult novel. At 16, Kaye is an independent, freaky kid who helps support her hard-living musician mother. After an abrupt move back home to New Jersey, Kaye finds herself in the middle of a faery power-play that threatens to transform her world forever. But her charged connection with a mysterious knight named Roiben might push her over the edge. Filled with magic, adventure, and mysterious strangers, Black's book will be entrance fantasy lovers.
