Zara collects phobias the way other high school girls collect Facebook friends. It's little wonder, since she's had a fairly rough life. Her father left when she was a baby, her stepfather just died and her mother's almost given up - in fact, she's sent her to live with her grandmother in cold and sleepy Maine to keep Zara safe'. Zara doesn't think she's in danger; she thinks her mother just can't cope.Zara's wrong. The man she sees everywhere - the tall, creepy guy who points at her from the side of the road - is not a figment of her imagination. He's a pixie. But not the cute, sweet kind with little wings. Maine's got a whole assortment of unbelievable creatures. And they seem to need something - something from Zara . . .
WOW!! I’m in love with a new character(s). AGAIN! Carrie Jones to my knowledge is brand spanky new and this is her debut novel. I read this book in just a couple of days and I adored it. (correction August 26th… Carrie is not brand spanky new… she has other books… visit her website. She’s awesome!)
It’s a young adult novel about a young girl who lost her stepfather whom she adored and ended up being sent to her grandmother’s (step-grandmother) house to live. Her grandmother is a very cool gram and has a few secrets of her own as does some other people in the town and Zara finds out some very interesting things about herself and her family… as well as falls in love with an incredible guy from school who also has some secrets. Werewolves and Pixies are at play here and it leads you into a very different and refreshing world. I’m very excited about this because there is a sequel on it’s way. It’s called Captivate and it’ll be out in December 2009. Can’t wait!!!
