andlt;b andgt;Mia is torn between two guysand#8212;and two worldsand#8212;in this epic, romantic fantasy.andlt;/bandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Mysterious lights have flickered above Crownsville for as long as Mia can remember. And as far as sheand#8217;s concerned, thatand#8217;s about the only interesting thing to happen in her small town. andlt;BRandgt;That is, until Sol arrives. Miaand#8217;s not one to fall for just any guy, but she canand#8217;t get Soland#8212;or the brilliant tattoo on his backand#8212;out of her mind.andlt;BRandgt;Then Miaand#8217;s brother goes missing, and Miaand#8217;s convinced that Sol knows more than heand#8217;s sharing. But getting closer to Sol means reevaluating everything Mia once believed to be true. Because Soland#8217;s not who Mia thought he wasand#8212;and neither is she.

Review:

"Seventeen-year-old Mia Stone has seen the strange lights that haunt her rural Nebraska town, but she doesn't suspect that they might have something to do with a string of child kidnappings. When Mia's 10-year-old half-brother, Jay, becomes the latest victim, Mia turns to gorgeous new student Sol. Mia thinks that Sol knows more about the kidnappings than he is letting on: his back is tattooed with the same strange bird that she has seen on her brother's ankle. When the lights reappear, Mia makes the drastic decision to embrace them, uncovering Sol's secrets and the truth about Mia's family. The strange nature of the lights will hook readers, though debut author Walsh doesn't draw out the mystery, revealing a magic-filled alternate world early on; oddly, Walsh chooses to call the city Mia arrives in Bordertown, invoking (intentionally or not) Terri Windling's fantasy metropolis. Expository information about Bordertown and the world of Brakaland weighs down the second half of the book, but it remains an intriguing fantasy adventure. Ages 14 — up. Agent: Nathaniel Jacks, Inkwell Management." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
