Sometime back I read Nancy Werlin's Impossible, another faery tale. Ms. Werlin does the faery realm quite well in my opinion. Phoebe, the main character in this book was a very nice girl and completely likeable. In some ways, she was almost too good. She never seemed to find much trouble and breezed about life.
Overall, I liked this book. I didn't particularly love it, but I liked it well enough. The description of the faery world, towards the very last part of the book was wonderful. I particularly enjoyed it once everything was explained, again toward the last of the book. At that point, the excitement was ramped up quite a bit too.
There was zero drugs, and drinking in this book and very minimal mentions of sex. I would say this could easily be for 13 and up. I'll give this book 3 little innocent kisses!
