Except the Queen - Jane Yolen, Midori Snyder I think I'm quitting this book.
It's boring, it's confusing and I can't get into it. I have yet to care about one character, and since they all have 2 or 3 names (human, fairy and "secret") I'm not sure I even have them straight.
You shouldn't have to work this hard for a book unless it's a classic.
