by Cyn Balog

Random House Children's Books | April 21, 2014 | Hardcover

Fairy Tale is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
A captivating and witty dark fantasy that will have girls lusting after it.

Morgan Sparks has always known that she and her boyfriend, Cam, are made for each other. But when Cam’s cousin Pip comes to stay with the family, Cam seems depressed. Finally Cam confesses to Morgan what’s going on: Cam is a fairy. The night he was born, fairies came down and switched him with a healthy human boy. Nobody expected Cam to live, and nobody expected his biological brother, heir to the fairy throne, to die. But both things happened, and now the fairies want Cam back to take his rightful place as Fairy King.

Even as Cam physically changes, becoming more miserable each day, he and Morgan pledge to fool the fairies and stay together forever. But by the time Cam has to decide once and for all what to do, Morgan’s no longer sure what’s best for everyone, or whether her and Cam’s love can weather an uncertain future.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New spin on an old tale Morgan is dating the guy everyone wants to be with. Cam is the football hero, smart and goodlooking. Morgan is not unremarkable herself as she can see the future and is never wrong, or so she keeps telling everyone. They've been neighbours and sweethearts their whole lives. Morgan's world is turned upside down when just weeks before their 16th birthday she discovers that Cam is a changeling and will be taken away from her. How will she stop that from happening? How is it that she can see the changes happening in Cam and Pip (the human child he was changed with) despite the spell cast by the fairy king? Will she be able to keep Cam with her despite the threat of Dawn? This is a book that I really enjoyed. Morgan is a strong and determined character and not as annoying (though she has her moments) as other female characters I've read. It was also a nice change of pace to have the guys being the one's going through lots of changes and having moments of self-doubt. It is both lighthearted and dark, witty and serious, sad and happy. I was entertained by this book.

Read from the Book

CHAPTER 1 People call me spooky. Maybe because by eleven o''clock on that day, I''d already told Ariana Miles she''d starve to death in Hollywood, Erica Fuentes she''d bomb history, and Wendell Marks that he would never, ever be a part of the A-list, no matter how hard he tried. Now, sitting in the bleachers after school, half watching a meaningless Hawks football exhibition game and waiting for some nameless freshman to bring me my French fries (psychics cannot work on an empty stomach), I''ve just about reduced my fourth client of the day to tears (well, Wendell didn''t cry; he just pretended to yawn, covered his mouth, and let out a pathetic snurgle). But hey, sometimes the future is scary. Sierra Martin won''t look at me. Instead, she''s taken an unnatural interest in the Heath bar wrapper wedged between the metal planks her sequin-studded flip-flops are resting on. A tear slips past her fake-tanned knees and lands perfectly on her porno-red big-toe nail. "Sorry," I say, offering her a pat on the back and a couple of orange Tic Tacs for consolation. "Really." Sometimes this gift does suck. Some days, I have the pleasure of doling out good news--BMWs as graduation presents, aced finals, that sort of thing. Today, it''s been nothing but total crap. And yes, it obviously must have come as a shock that I''d envisioned Sierra, whose parents had bred her for Harvard, walking to Physics 101 on the Middlesex Community College campus, but it''s not my fault.
