Under His Spell
From the Series My Boyfriend Is a Monster
Bethany Farmer’s life is a boring high school routine, and she likes it that way. Soccer, coffee, homework, more coffee, and no goofy romance. That is, until foreign exchange student Allein Atwood shows up in her Midwestern town, and her life turns epically weird. Allein has unearthly good looks, princely politeness, and a bunch of goofy, romantic pick-up lines. But is his country really so foreign that they don’t know anything about soccer? Or coffee?
To her horror, Bethany is swept off her feet by Allein’s spellbinding ways—and then knocked flat by savage creatures set loose into suburbia to hunt Allein down. Suddenly Bethany’s normal town is twisted upside down, and nothing is what it seems. Can Bethany rescue her prince of a boyfriend and keep them both alive long enough to go on a second date?

“Fans of the series…will enjoy the premise of pitting fairies against mortals, the artwork’s Wizard of Oz switch from black-and-white to color upon Bethany’s entrance into the fairy realm, and, of course, the middle-school appropriate romance, with the jock girl getting the cute monster boy in the end.” —Booklist
