Lament: The Faerie Queen’s Deception (Books of Faerie, #1)
By Maggie Stiefvater
(Kindle Edition)

Sixteen-year-old Deirdre Monaghan is a prodigiously gifted musician. She's about to find out she's also a cloverhand - one who can see faeries.  Unexpectedly, Deirdre finds herself infatuated with a mysterious boy named Luke, who enters her ordinary life, seemingly out of thin air. But his interest in her might be something darker than summer romance. When a sinister faerie named Aodhan shows up with deadly orders from the Faerie Queen, it forces Dee right into the midst of Faerie. Caught in the crossfire with Deirdre is James, her wisecracking but loyal best friend.  Deirdre had been wishing her summer weren't so dull, but taking on a centuries-old Faerie Queen isn't exactly what she had in mind.

Lament is a story filled with magic, mystery, and romance.  Deirdre is an ordinary girl who is dealing with an over protective and controlling mother when she comes across a boy who truly sees her. Luke (the mysterious and dangerous guy) seems to know her better than most and wants nothing more than to love her, much to the disappointment of her best friend James.  Deirdre goes from wallflower to a strong character that ends up saving the boys!  I enjoyed Lament and would recommend it as a great read for YA fans of all ages.
