Zara collects phobias the way other high school girls collect lipsticks.
Little wonder, since life’s been pretty rough so far. Her father left, her stepfather just died, and her mother’s pretty much checked out. Now Zara’s living with her grandmother in sleepy, cold Maine so that she stays “safe.” Zara doesn’t think she’s in danger; she thinks her mother can’t deal.
Turns out that guy she sees everywhere, the one leaving trails of gold glitter, isn’t a figment of her imagination.
He’s a pixie—and not the cute, lovable kind with wings. He’s the kind who has dreadful, uncontrollable needs. And he’s trailing Zara.
What I thought:
This had a great story in it... enough to keep me reading even though I hate how it was written. I have stopped reading other books because of the style before, but this story hooked me. Because of the style, I did dock it a star, because at parts it was so distracting I had a hard time continuing. I like my stories in past tense, present tense is just too weird for me.
I loved the story, it was a great change from what I usually read. Most of the time I get tired of the high school drama, but this wasn't so bad. Sure there were fights over the popular boy, fights over the new girl, but it wasn't played up so much where I found it just too frustrating.
This story was kind of sad, I found myself on the verge of tears a couple of times. I understood why Zara was sent away, but she seemed to come out of her shell all too quickly.
Hey guys! I'm a big fan of reading and writing. I have been writing my own little reviews on shelfari and decided to try my own blog. I love all kinds of books, mystery, paranormal romance, urban fantasy, young adult, erotica, historical romances and just any romance book.
I own a Kindle and love browsing Amazon for free ebooks as well as getting my favorite authors and series on my portable library system. This has changed the way I read. I have gone to a couple books a month to a couple books a week.
