From the co-creator of the bestselling Spiderwick Chronicles comes this unique gothic fantasy. Welcome to the realm of very scary faeries! Sixteen-year-old Kaye is a modern nomad. Fierce and independent, she travels from city to city with her mother's rock band until an ominous attack forces Kaye back to her childhood home. There, amid the industrial, blue-collar New Jersey backdrop, Kaye soon finds herself an unwilling pawn in an ancient power struggle between two rival faerie kingdoms — a struggle that could very well mean her death. "Tripping the dark fantastic with newcomer Holly Black means pixie dust may well include blood spatter, sharp thorns, and bits of broken glass." — Publishers Weekly, starred review.
