About the book...
After being orphaned, high school student Josie Barton only has one person she can turn to when things get rough—a mysterious legal guardian who calls himself her Benefactor. “Ben” takes care of everything for her. He pays her bills, provides food, clothes, and even a cell phone. But there is one thing Ben doesn’t know: Josie Barton sees scary imaginary creatures everywhere she goes. Even her apartment is being haunted by an invisible monster! And just when Josie thinks things couldn’t get any worse . . . she meets the guy from across the hall.

Zeph Clemmont is a man of many faces. He’s a changeling with enemies in all the worst places, fighting to undo a magical curse that could end his life. He loves a good argument and has incredible magical power, but he may have met his match in Josie. So far, she’s the only one who seems able to rein in his childish tantrums and magical explosions. Zeph will have to swallow his pride and finally let go of all his dark secrets if he really wants to break his curse. And with Josie at his side, he might actually stand a chance this time.

Just as I promised...
...AMAZING with a hint of MAGICAL.
I know I'm curious, but before we run off with that curiosity, let's reel it back in for second because part two of our post is ready for your reading pleasure.  It's a TOP FIVE moments from this very book post from the author herself!  Don't worry, there's no spoilers.  ^-^

1. Meeting Zeph –

He’s not like the other boys … and not just because of his violet eyes and colourful tattooed sleeves. There’s more to the guy across the hall than meets the eye, and Josie can’t wait to figure out more!

2. Joe Noble appears at school –

There’s faerie mischief and magic afoot when a mysterious new guy shows up at school. He’s handsome, charismatic, and seems to have all of the school faculty wrapped around his finger. Oh—and he thinks Josie is his girlfriend!

3. Eldrick joins the family –

Not even the Prince of Nightmares can resist Josie’s culinary prowess. He’s one batch of vegetarian biscuits away from becoming a permanent member of her growing, bizarre little family. But is he willing to fight Zeph for the jar of raw honey?

It could just be beginner’s luck, but Zeph’s idea for a first date might just be a homerun. Funnel cakes, ferris wheels, carnival games, pig races, and strawberry pie? Sign me up!

5. Josie’s first “battle” –

She’s not a damsel anymore. Armed with a knew knowledge of magic, a couple of Sharpies, and some powerful spells, Josie is ready to step into the ring with ancient faerie villains and hold her own. That is, unless someone threatens the life of the man she loves—then she might just shoot to kill.
