Does the cover reflect the contents: The cover did tempt me to pick the book up, it's not every day you see gold lipstick. It did reflect the contents of the book with the whole pixie kiss thing, but the cover is a bit indirect about it.
Recommend: Yes
How would you recommend the book: It's has similar qualities as Twilight, just that instead of vampires, it's pixies, and the characters are more in depth and are realistic.
Compelling Aspect of the Book: The plot- even though it was very similar to the Twilight series it wasn't predictable like Twilight, I couldn't pin down who was the bad guy until the characters revealed themselves.
Age Range: 14-15
Quality: 4Q Better than most
Popularity: 4P Broad general teen appeal
Comments: I liked the whole pixie house thing- putting iron around the whole house/mansion but it needs to be a little more clear it certain aspects when the characters are putting the iron around the house because it got a little confusing for me, too much stuff was happening at the same time.
