Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog

06.23.2009 from Delacorte Books for Young Readers

(Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill from Breaking The Spine)

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. 

Doesn’t that sound fabulous? Unique, too; usually fairy books involve someone falling in love with a fairy, not someone being in love with a fairy. This sounds like an interesting place to start a romance. Also, isn’t the girl usually the one who mysteriously finds out she’s a fairy? It’s a unique twist on something I already love, plus the cover is fantastic, so I really, really can’t wait to read this one!
