Tanya has always been able to see fairies, and has been tormented by them for this skill. As the fairies dole out increasingly destructive punishments for her diary entries about them, Tanya's mother becomes more and more frustrated with her troubled teen daughter. After the last event, Tanya is sent away to live with her emotionally distant grandmother, whose home happens to be overrun by fae. Tanya learns about fairy changelings, and the town's history of children disappearing. Tanya and her friend Fabian attempt to solve an old murder mystery, but are in for much more than they have bargained for.

The Thirteen Treasures is a bit of a standard fairy story in which fairies cause mischief and steal humans. If you want nasty fairy curses, ancient ancestors with strange histories, and derelict British estates, this book is for you. I found the story to be fun, if somewhat unremarkable.
