Sypnosis:"Morgan Sparks and Cam Browne are a match made in heaven. They've been best friends since birth, they tell each other everything, and oh yeah- they're totally hot for each other.

But a week before their joint Sweet Sixteen bash, everything changes. Cam's awkward cousin Pip comes to stay, and Morgan is stunned when her formerly perfect boyfriend seems to be drifting away.

When Morgan demands answers, she's shocked to discover the source of Cam's distance isn't another girl- it's another world. Pip claims that Cam is a fairy. No, seriously. A fairy. And now his people want Cam to return to their world and take his rightful place as Fairy King.

Determined to keep Cam with her, Morgan plots to fool the fairies. But as Cam continues to change, she has to decide once and for all if he really is her destiny, and if their “perfect” love can weather an uncertain future.

Witty, original and unexpectedly touching, FAIRY TALE will captivate fans of TWILIGHT and WICKED LOVELY.

Review:The first thing that made me want to read this story was the cover. I mean, is it not beautiful? When I got his book I kept putting it off because it is so small. I really enjoyed this book.
I think the whole concept of having this stranger come and find out that you boyfriend was a fairy and is going to have to leave and be a fairy king is very, well, interesting.
For me it was really easy to like the characters. I thought Cam and Morgan where the cutest couple ever. The whole 1-2-3 thing is adorable:). One of things that I thought was real original is that as time went on Cam started to shrink and become more fairy like. I had never read that before.
My favorite character honestly is Pip. Ah Pip. He is so sincere and completely nice and so willing to help and give himself up for true love. I love him so much. My favorite part in the book is when they’re clipping stories and Pip has a kind of spasm attack from reading a joke about fish hitting a wall and saying “Dam”.
I really felt myself going through the roller coaster that Morgan was going through. Pip or Cam? Unlike Morgan though I didn’t make excuses for the feelings towards Pip, which is one of the things that made me angry. She couldn’t accept that maybe by chance Cam wasn’t the one.
In conclusion this is a very cute quick read that I absolutely loved. The characters are likeable and the author does a great job with the writing. If you’re looking for a real adventure book this is not the one for you though. I give it a four.point.eight because the ending wasn’t the best. I think the outcome is good but it felt like it needed more.

****.8 Four.Eight.Stars
