A Changeling's Tale, by Morgan Kegan
Being the new girl in high school is hard enough. What if you had to hide being a faerie, too?

I'm Siobhan Miller, the new sophomore in my Tennessee hill-country high school -- and a faerie changeling. The normal changes a girl goes through on her way to becoming a woman are awkward enough.
