Dust Girl was a great book and I look forward to reviewing the next book in the series: Golden Girl!
This book was a birthday gift, courtesy of my parents 🙂
Callie Le Roux lives in the dust city. She finds out she’s half fairy just as a huge dust storm comes to town and sweeps her mother away. Callie faints and later finds out that her fairy family is trying to find her. There’s only one problem: Callie doesn’t know who to trust anymore.
She discovers that there are two types of fairies: the Seelies and the Unseelies. Seelies are the pretty, supposedly good fairies and Unseelies are the bad, ugly fairies. Callie accepts some not-so-good help and finds herself in the midst of a full blown fairy quarrel.
She also frees a kid, named Jack, from jail. He was part of a bootlegging scheme but is out of it now. He promises to help her.
Callie finds out that her parents are being held hostage by the fairies but she doesn’t quite yet know which ones. Jack finds out that the same fairies that are keeping Callie’s parents hostage have also captured the spirit of his dead sister.
Will Callie and Jack be able to free the hostages before it’s too late?
