Publisher Comments:

Zara collects phobias the way other girls collect Facebook friends. Little wonder, since lifes been pretty rough so far. Her father left, her stepfather just died, and her mothers pretty much checked out. Now Zaras living with her grandmother in sleepy, cold Maine so that she stays “safe.” Zara doesnt think shes in danger; she thinks her mother cant deal.

Wrong. Turns out that guy she sees everywhere, the one leaving trails of gold glitter, isnt a figment of her imagination. Hes a pixie—and not the cute, lovable kind with wings. Hes the kind who has dreadful, uncontrollable needs. And hes trailing Zara.

With suspense, romance, and paranormal themes, this exciting breakout novel has readers rapidly turning the pages.
