[b]Not very many people i know have heard of it. It's a book my Holly Black, the same author that wrote the spiderwick chronicles except it's aimed at older teens (and the copy i got even had a parental advisory sticker on the cover xD) It's a great book in my opinion, it has a dark atmosphere which i think i liked. [/b] If you think you would like to read it, visit here; (just random links, i couldn't find much good sites:\) http://www.amazon.com/Tithe-Modern-Faerie-Holly-Black/dp/0689867042 http://blackholly.com/tithereviews.htm or if you just want a quick review here; Kaye is a teenage "asian blonde" dropout who shoplifts, smokes -- and sees faeries, Her mother is a singer, but when her latest band splits up, Kaye ends up staying at her grandmothers house, where she saw faeries as a child. After a bad date, Kaye has a strange encounter with a wounded Seelie Knight and gets caught up in a struggles between Seelie and Unseelie Courts that looses dangerour forces from thh ehuman world. With some distinctive touches amid the traditional element of faeire magic, this is an outstanding first novel"-- by Carolyn Crushman, from th espetember 2002 issue~
