When Tamasin finds out she's half fairy, and that her parents adopted her from fairyland, she decides to find out more answers direct from the fairies themselves, including her mother, the fairy queen. Along the way she learns the depth of her adoptive parents' love for her, the possibilities of a boy who's himself half goblin, and that having a set of gossamer wings suddenly sprout from your shoulder blades isn't all bad...

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6–9—From the premise that Titania's night with the donkey-headed Bottom-as depicted in A Midsummer Night's Dream—resulted in a halfling child, Baker spins this modern fairy tale. Although she's used to being different, 15-year-old Tamasin is surprised when wings suddenly sprout from her back and her parents reveal that she was adopted. Meanwhile, in the land of the fey, Jak, another halfling, struggles to fit in with his goblin family. When his uncle sends him to the human world on a special mission to find and bring back a particular girl, he seizes the chance to prove himself. Jak meets Tamasin at school and invites her to a Halloween party. Together they fall through a gate and into the middle of a rebellion in the fairy world, pitting her birth mother, Titania, against his goblin uncle. Jak and Tamasin's friendship grows as they learn about one another and try to remain alive. Readers experience events from both teens' perspectives as the third-person narrative moves back and forth in time, alternating points of view. The author has left open the possibility of further adventures for Jak and Tamasin, but awkward transitions and far too many coincidentally helpful magic abilities make it hard to believe in this particular fairy world.—Kathleen Isaacs, Towson University, MD
