Rue Silver's life seems to be spiraling out of control. Her mother has disappeared. Her father, a college professor, is so depressed that he just vegetates; not even going to work. School is the usual combination of abuse and tension, with occasional outbreaks of knowledge. And Rue's beginning to see things that her friends don't notice. It's freaking her out and she thinks she maybe going crazy. Then she comes home to find the police arresting her father for the murder of one of his students. From official release/information:
Product Description: Rue Silver's mother has disappeared . . . and her father has been arrested, suspected of killing her. But it's not as straightforward as that. Because Rue is a faerie, like her mother was. And her father didn't kill her mother -- instead, he broke a promise to Rue's faerie king grandfather, which caused Rue's mother to be flung back to the faerie world. Now Rue must go to save her -- and must also defeat a dark faerie that threatens our very mortal world.
