Another Fine Faerie Fable
This book centers around Phoebe, a many-generations-distant descendent of Mayer Rothschild, founder of the great banking empire and, as it transpires, beneficiary of extraordinary favors from the queen of the faeries. The bargain he made for his family is about to impact Phoebe, who bonds with a strange girl named Mallory in middle school, only to discover a few years later that her best friend (and the friend's enigmatic but strangely compelling older brother, Ryland) have ulterior motives. After having been manipulated and betrayed by them both, Phoebe has to dig deep to find her inner resources and decide whether she is to be the one to pay the family's debt to the faeries--will she be ordinary, or will she be extraordinary?
