Zara collects phobias the way other high school girls collect lipsticks. 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.

AMAZING! I love love love this book! I honestly could not put it down and when I did I was extremely sad! The storyline had me hooked instantly and as the pages turned I found myself more and more involved. The way Carrie wrote this book I actually felt like I was there and hanging out with Zara while everything happened. Oh and I can not forget to mention the pixies, I mean come on! What an awesome concept and so different from the normal tinker bell =P I have a feeling this book will be in my top 10 of 2010 because it was that good.

This book is filled with so much action packed fantasy, everywhere from pixies to were's its awesome! I also really enjoyed how Carrie explained Zara's surroundings because I felt like that was a key point in helping me visualize the pixies and their habitat. Oh and don't even get me started on the characters because I could write a book on that! I mean they all seemed so detailed and real to the point where I did not even feel like I was reading. Especially Zara she was laid out so perfectly that I could not help but want to read more to find out her particular story.

If you could not tell, I am not asking you but telling you: GO READ THIS BOOK. If you are anything like me and love fantasy young adult this is one you have to read. I loved it!

Happy Reading!
