Wicked Lovely is the sort of book that will make most teen girls swoon. Aislinn has always been able to see the fairy folk, but the most important rule she has followed all her life is never let them notice you. So what’s a poor girl to do when Keenan, the gorgeous Summer King, decides that Aislinn is the girl of his dreams and his only hope for finally claiming to his throne?
The truth of Keenan’s plight is much darker than Aislinn knows. He is bound by the powers of his mother, the Winter Queen, until he can meet a girl who will be able to hold the winter staff and not be overcome by the cold. He believes Aislinn is that girl.
But Aislinn is reluctant to be courted by Keenan. She hates all fairies, for one thing, and she is crazy about her best friend (with benefits), Seth. She tries everything she can to resist Keenan’s advances, but doing so may result in tragic consequences for her, everyone she loves, and the whole of mankind and faery-kind. Will her heart be softened by Keenan’s plight?
This book is magic realism at its finest for teens. It includes hot guys (and fairies), a decision of eternal significance, and tragic love.
Wicked Lovely is a nominee for the 2008 Teens’ Top Ten. To read more about the Teens’ Top Ten program, click here. To request this book from the library, click here. And don’t forget to place your vote during Teen Read Week, October 12-18, 2008.
