By Andie Arthur
Monday December 14, 2015
When she was a baby, Juliet’s mother gave her up to a magical creature for everything her heart desired. At 17 years old, Juliet has spent her entire life torn between two worlds – the normal mundane world of school and the magical world of the women who raised her. Now Lavinia, one of the changelings that raised her, has a plan to get back to the fairy world. Except Juliet isn’t entirely sure she wants to go – because her friend, the foul-mouthed rebel Miranda has a plan for her to find her birth mother. Before the Winter Solstice, Juliet must figure out who she really is – human, fairy, or something else.

The father she dreams is none other than Jimi Hendrix.
