Waiting on Wednesday

So, we're giving in to the meme madness. We are now biting/stealing/snatching from Jill at Breaking the Spine and participating in Waiting on Wednesday so that we can express our frustration at Father Time. This week we're waiting on...

Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog

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.


We're waiting on this this book because, duh, it has fairies (we also like faeries). We tend to enjoy any re-imagining of fairies (see: O.R. Melling, Melissa Marr) and this looks like a fantastic version of stories we have all heard. It blends reality, fantasy, and teen romance-this throws off bright, shiny rays of potential drama. We like drama. The cover is also magnificent. The author actually has a contest on right now to win the book. You can check it out at - . Here's hoping the clock speeds up, and we have the book in our greedy, bibliohilic hands soon.
