Rue is a goth girl whose mother has disappeared and whose father is in a deep depression. And she's started seeing things--goblins and fairies and other weird looking people when she's out and about. Her professor father is arrested for the murder of a university student and under suspicion for the disappearance of her mother. But, of course, Rue is a fairy. That's why her mother was always naked in the garden--of course!
I know people out there like this book. It's checked out often in my library, but I'm just not a fan.
