Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog

Morgan Sparks and Cam Browne are the couple that every one is jealous of in school. Cam is the cute quarterback - Mogan is the "normal" girl (I know, I found it refreshing that she wasn’t the mega-hot cheerleader). They have been the best of friends since they were in nursery school and it was only natural for their friendship to evolve into love. They are so meant for each other they even have the same birthday. In celebration of their Sweet 16 - they have decided to throw a joint 16 birthday bash. A week short of the party - Morgan starts noticing some slight changes in Cam. He’s not his normal happy-go-lucky self. She’s worried there might be another girl involved... she just can’t figure it out. That is until Cam shows her the wings growing out of his back. It seems Cam isn’t being seduced by a new girl but by a whole other realm. He’s slowly becoming a Fairy. Seriously... a Fairy.

Things start getting weird when a mysterious cousin named Pip appears, Cam can no longer throw a football, not to mention he’s getting smaller by the day, and he has no time to spend with her because he’s in "fairy" training. Once he confesses that he is a fairy king being called to the throne on his 16th birtday, it is up to Morgan to fight for their "perfect" love and do anything in her power to keep Cam... even if it means fooling the fairys and possibly putting herself in danger.

This is another one that I've been gushing to everyone about. I absolutely loved this story. It has such a unique blend of fantasy and reality. Morgan (our narrator) has this witty, sarcastic humor that I found myself laughing out loud over. I totally got her! Cam and Pip were just adorable and I was going through all the mixed emotions Morgan was experiencing. I enjoyed that it wasn't your average tale about a girl in love with a fairy - but instead it was a struggle to stay together when so many obstacles were driving them apart. I also found it neat that it wasn't told through the girl becoming the fairy but through the eyes of the person in love with the fairy... which was a very different take for me. Although towards the middle I had an inkling as to what the ending would be - I think Ms. Balog did a fantastic job in getting us there and making us (the readers) feel good in the end.

Fairy Tale is a charming story you won't want to miss - full of delightful characters, star-crossed lovers and plenty of magic.
