Tithe by Holly Black was an interesting book, and like the ones by Melissa Marr, some research had definitely gone into it. Having said that, I didn’t enjoy it as much as the Wicked Lovely series. Kay, who has always been an outsider – a rockstar for a mother, travelling around different schools, wearing crazy clothes – gradually discovers that there is a reason for her inability to relate to other people. She is dragged into the dangerous world of Faerie and has to work out for herself who she can trust; learning difficult lessons and losing old friends along the way. Definitely worth reading if you happen upon it.
