Wicked Lovely

I recently read Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr. Here is a description I wrote:

Aislynn has the Sight, which means that she can see the faeries, sprites, fey and nymphs that invisibly live in the world among humans. Fun, right? Wrong. These are malevolent creatures that play painful, dirty tricks on humans. Aislynn and her Grans have always had the Sight, but the faeries can't know or they might blind or even kill them. So, Aislynn walks through life, through the faeries, rigidly ignoring them. There are rules that apply to the faeries and suddenly they're breaking a lot of rules. Two of them, royal ones, seem to be following Aislynn. Soon, Aislynn is swept into a battle of wills when the Summer King wants her to be his queen and she must conceal her knowledge and resist his magic. Ancient rules, modern life, and the power of love come together in this gorgeous and richly woven urban fantasy.

This was a truly unique and awesome read. Highly recommended reading from a first-time author. Pick it up for your teenaged friend or yourself.
