Gone are the glory days of Tinkerbell and company. Today it is not only vampires that get the special treatment. Many new books are out about faeries as well. One I enjoyed not too long ago with my son was the The Spiderwick Chronicles. But it doesn't stop there. A recent article titled, "Not Your Typical Faerie Princess," posted on Sparknotes (of all places) explored the evolution of the faerie/pixie character in recent book adaptations. It is pretty good and is at least a good read if you are interested in reading books that might have faerie-ish themes to them.
The picture here is of one that I have not read anything about. It appears at first glance to be a teenage female-drama fest like Twilight, but I might be wrong. Would be very interested to hear from anyone of you who have read it.
