'Spells' by Aprilynne Pike comes out in hardcover today and, if it's still turned into a movie starring Miley Cyrus like planned, it's pretty much like getting a glimpse into Miley's future - where she might be filming, what juicy scenes will have people talking, etc.
In the first book of the series, 'Wings,' we meet a normal girl named Laurel who is new at school and is a little... different. For starters, she's a strict vegan, she's never been to see a doctor (her mother believes is homeopathic remedies) and she's hardly ever hungry. Then one day, she discovers that all these quirks are actually connected and having a very significant meaning - she's anything but normal.
Now it's the second book and things are really taking off. Laurel has made the startling discovery that she is a faerie and, no, she's not going to go off to college, there's a totally different destiny planned for her. Oh, and did we mention there's a love triangle? Yup, that's getting good too.
To coincide with the launch of the second book, publisher Harper Teen has launched castyourspells.com, with a video contest where you can create your own trailer for the book. Three winners will each receive a phone call from the author and two signed copies of the book - one for you and one to give to a friend. Check it out here.
