Description - Fairytales for Wilde Girls by Allyse Near

A deliciously dark bubblegum-gothic fairytale from a stunning new Australian talent. He s gone the same way as those little birds that bothered me with their awful songs! And you will too, you and your horrible heart-music, because you won t stay out of my woods! There s a dead girl in a birdcage in the woods. That s not unusual. Isola Wilde sees a lot of things other people don t. But when the girl appears at Isola s window, her every word a threat, Isola needs help. Her real-life friends Grape, James and new boy Edgar make her forget for a while. And her brother-princes magical creatures seemingly lifted from the pages of the French fairytales Isola idolises will protect her with all the fierce love they possess. It may not be enough. Isola needs to uncover the truth behind the dead girl s demise . . . before the ghost steals Isola's last breath.
