It's all she's ever wanted to be, but it couldn't be further from her grasp...

Dana Hathaway doesnt know it yet, but shes in big trouble. When her alcoholic mom shows up at her voice recital drunk, again, Dana decides shes had enough and runs away to find her mysterious father in Avalon: the only place on Earth where the regular, everyday world and the captivating, magical world of Faerie intersect. But from the moment Dana sets foot in Avalon, everything goes wrong, for it turns out she isn't just an ordinary teenage girl, she's a Faeriewalker, a rare individual who can travel between both worlds, and the only person who can bring magic into the human world and technology into Faerie.

Dana finds herself tangled up in a cutthroat game of Fae politics. Someone's trying to kill her, and everyone seems to want something from her, from her newfound friends and family to Ethan, the hot Fae guy Dana figures she'll never have a chance with...until she does. Caught between two worlds, Dana isn't sure where she'll ever fit in and who can be trusted, not to mention if her world will ever be normal again.

My Review: Dana cant stand being with her mother anymore. She is always drunk, and constantly takes her to the hospital. They also move a lot which leave very little room in ever making any friends. One day Dana is just tired of it all and leaves for London. Once in London she searches for her dad, but before she can get to him Dana is kidnapped. Dana has trust issues and why not, whenever she makes friends they always stab her in the back. Eventually when Dana does get to her dad she finds out a secret that could kill her. She is a faerie. She is a special faerie in ways that she can cross into their realm and the human realm, and she can see the glimmerglass. With all this power she has people after her. Some want to kill her while others want her for their own good. Dana will need all the help she can get.
