Laney Harris thinks there might be monsters in Fairy, Texas.
When her mother remarried and moved them to a town where a date meant hanging out at the Sonic, Laney figured that “boring” would have a whole new meaning. A new stepsister who despised her and a high school where she was the only topic of gossip were bad enough. But when she met the school counselor (and his terminal bad breath), she grew suspicious. Especially since he had wings that only she could see. And then there were Josh and Mason, two gorgeous glimmering-eyed classmates whose interest in her might not be for the reasons she hoped. Not to mention that dead guy she nearly tripped over in gym class.
Boring takes on an entirely new dimension in Fairy, Texas.
If she’s going to survive in this small town, she’ll have to learn to wing it.
I was partnered with Mason Collier, the infamous football-playing, cute, but possibly black-magicky friend-of-Bartlef I’d heard about at lunch. I looked around and saw a guy waving at me from across the room. He was looking at me kind of like he was hungry and maybe I was breakfast. It worried me.
Still, at least I hadn’t been paired up with Kayla. It could have been much worse.
“Okay,” Carlson said. “Go ahead and meet with your partner and plan your strategy.”
Mason and I stood up at the same time and walked toward each other. I was so busy making sure I didn’t trip over any desks that I didn’t see Kayla headed toward me until she was right in front of me. And then she leaned in close to my face and hissed at me. “Don’t get too cozy. He’s way out of your league.”
I rolled my eyes and moved around her without responding. Three days. Three days I’d been in Fairy, and already I had an enemy. And I lived in her house. My life kept getting better and better.
Mason and I met in the middle of the room. Kayla and her friends huddled nearby, watching us.
“Hey,” Mason said.
“Hey.” Nice, neutral word, hey. Can mean almost anything. Or nothing.
“So,” he said, “where do you want to start?”
He was asking me? Where I wanted to start was away from here, where there weren’t any dead boys to trip over.
So much for that option.

I have enjoyed After Us by Amber Hart.
I love any Jennifer Armentrout romance and I love the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by JR Ward
I don’t read a lot of YA. Adding to my list.
I really liked This Is What Happy Looks Like – just a cutesy novel where a girl unknowingly becomes pen pals with a movie star (who mistypes his friend’s email address and gets her instead). The YA romances I enjoy tend to be the more upbeat ones – not the doomed romance kind. They just make me smile, and who doesn’t like that? 🙂
I like Hollie Westring’s Sage Springs series, all the fairy tale retellings by Shannon Hale, amd I like finding new titles and authors on book tours
Good write-up. I certainly appreciate this website. Keep
I’m a big fan of Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner’s Starbound Trilogy!
don’t have any favs
Anna and the French Kiss, Lola and the boy next door, Eleanor & Park 😉
