Rich kid Parker is bored with his over-privileged life is enchanted by the mysterious new girl next door. Soon his life, and the lives of his classmates and family, are turned upside down. But is this excitement really what Parker was looking for? With lives at stake, will he choose adventure for himself or safety for others?

I am a huge fan of fractured fairy tales AND of books where crazy things happen in normal life; this book fits both criteria. The reading level is fairly low, while at the same time the book is well-written, so it is interesting for a wide variety of readers. There are a few cheesy parts and moments where I'm like, "Jeez Neal Shusterman, laying the innuendos on a little think, aren't ya?"... Definitely an enjoyable read, and I'm excited to read more of the Dark Fusion series.
