Annotation:
Holly Black, author of a bestselling children's fantasy series, the Spiderwick Chronicles, writes for a somewhat more mature audience with this urban YA fantasy, set in the same milieu as her debut novel, TITHE. After Valerie "Val" Russell discovers her boyfriend and her mother in a compromising position, the teenager runs away from her New Jersey suburban home to live in the New York subway tunnels with a trio of newly met acquaintances. From them, Val learns that magic and faeries are very real--and very dangerous. Unfortunately, the lesson doesn't come soon enough to prevent her from becoming indentured to a faerie, a troll named Ravus.
