Life would be great for 11-year old Nicholas Vargas if...
    his father hadn't gotten remarried to a woman he barely knows, whose daughter is kind of, well, weird;
    his stepsister weren't fixated on faeries;
    he hadn't found a four-leaf clover, allowing him to see faeries; and
    he hadn't foolishly agreed to find a water faerie's missing siblings, while his home is endangered by a roaming giant.
Sounds like enough trouble for any kid, right?

Well, that's just where things start getting interesting in The Nixie's Song: Beyond the Spiderwick Chronicles Book 1 by Tony diTerlizzi and Holly Black.

From official release/information:

Book Description: The Spiderwick Chronicles leave the old-fashioned charm of New England far behind and head south for some fiendish faerie fun in the hot Florida sun. Eleven-year-old Nicholas Vargas only thinks his life has been turned upside down after his developer father remarries and moves his new wife and daughter into the soon-to-be completed Mangrove Hollow.

But an "expedition" to a nearby lake turns up a little nixie with a giant problem - the huge, lumbering, fire-breathing variety - and it's up to Nick; his stepsister, Laurie; and his big brother, Julian (plus a familiar face from the original Spiderwick Chronicles) to figure out the best way to stop a host of rampaging giants before all of Florida goes up in smoke.
