Summary: 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.

My Thoughts: Hmm, how shall I start this review? I really wanted to love this. I had been looking forward to it for a long time. It just lingered on my TBR and finally made its way to the top. I started off not knowing what to expect. By about 40 pages in, I almost stopped. We are introduced to Morgan and Cam who have been together since they were kids. Heck, they wore in diapers together. They have always known each other and known they would end up together. 

Morgan is a little bit of a psychic and she just assumed he would be in her life forever. They even have the same birthday. About a week before their 16th birthday arrives, Cam is told he is a fairy and its time to go back to the Otherworld. He does not like this and he tells Morgan about it. This is the part where I wanted to smack her. He tried explaining it to her and she kept coming up with excuses of why it couldn't be true. I know it would be hard to understand but how many ways does he have to say it? After that, the boy who was taken when Cam was switched at the hospital, Pip is his name, comes and lives with Cam's family. Overall, his mom and dad were pretty understanding about all this and they believed it all. Weird.

Well, another girl comes as well to take Cam into the Otherworld. That is her responsibility. She annoyed me!! I never really felt a connection to Cam. Even though the book does focus on him a bit, we never really get to know him. We just know he's popular, on the football team, he's Morgan's boyfriend, etc. We do get to know Pip really well. Him and Morgan unite to form a plan to get Cam to be able to stay. If you want to find out what happens, read the book!

Overall: It was an alright book. I really love fairies but this one just didn't do it for me. I think it was written for younger audiences. I didn't dislike it, but I didn't really love it either. I'm happy the way it ended, it was surprising, but appropriate. I'm glad it was a short book though.

Cover: Like it. It's a pretty cover.
