Lots of girls play Fairy Princess when they’re little. Megan O’Reilly had no idea the real thing was like playing chess, guitar, and hockey all at once. Megan had known for a long time that she wasn’t an entirely typical girl. But living with ADHD—and her mother’s obsessions—was a very different thing from finding out she wasn’t entirely human. Somewhere out there, in a completely different world, her father needs help. There’s a conflict, revolving around Faerie seasonal rituals, that could have consequences for humanity—and if Megan’s getting the terminology straight, it sounds like her family aren’t even supposed to be the good guys. As she’s further and further swept up in trying to save her father, Megan may be getting too good at not being human.

***Valerie- #NerdGirlVal’s  Review***
This book would be wonderful for kids in Middle School and High School, it is written at their level. I myself was a little confused in the beginning about who was who. I did learn a lot about the Faerie realm and how it works. Megan was a Princess in a world she felt most at home and that world wasn’t our world. A lot of kids feel like they don’t belong and know there is a place for them out there some where, they just have to find it. This story tells just that, with creatures and Fairy’s and a Queen and a King that is her Father. Not your typical human race. There is a lot of making new friends and finding out who your enemy really is. There is sward fights, being chased by hug dogs, vines that like blood, hug creatures with armor and the rescue of the ???? Once I got into Faerie land, the story picked up excitement and I was hooked. I loved how the Authors showed how friends stick together and work together as a team. The whole story was well written with young minds in mind. I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to book 2.
