Cyn Balog’s Character Debut Party

Fairy Tale by Cyn BalogOkay, so I can’t exactly tell you the specifics of what I loved most about FAIRY TALE because it was the ending and I don’t want to give anything away! I’ll just say that this book is a totally new take on YA fairy stories that kept me guessing until the very end, which I <3d, which doesn't happen all that often. And the MC, Morgan? Well, if that girl went to my high school back in the day, I probably wouldn't have hated going there so much. 🙂 She's quite sassy. I like that in a girl.

Now, if only I could get Cyn to come visit me when I'm in NYC… but that's another project!


Morgan Sparks and Cam Browne are a match made in heaven. They’ve been best friends since birth, they tell each other everything, and oh yeah–they’re totally hot for each other. But a week before their joint Sweet Sixteen bash, everything changes. Cam’s awkward cousin Pip comes to stay, and Morgan is stunned when her formerly perfect boyfriend seems to be drifting away. When Morgan demands answers, she’s shocked to discover the source of Cam’s distance isn’t another girl–it’s another world. Pip claims that Cam is a fairy. No, seriously. A fairy. And now his people want Cam to return to their world and take his rightful place as Fairy King.

Determined to keep Cam with her, Morgan plots to fool the fairies. But as Cam continues to change, she has to decide once and for all if he really is her destiny, and if their “perfect” love can weather an uncertain future.

Morgan’s 2009 Debut Party

The Guest List

Um, as long as they don’t have wings, she’ll let them in.

No wings? Check. Let the partying begin!

The Party

It’s a fancy Sweet 16 bash held at the Green Toad, an exclusive restaurant in the city with teal napkins. Or silver ones.

The Guest of Honor: Morgan

Morgan is wearing a teal sparkly dress tonight. And her theme song? Never Say Goodbye.

Hmmm. I really hope it’s the Bon Jovi version of Never Say Goodbye, because that’s the song of my very first kiss at the summer camp dance way back in 1980-something. Since Cyn’s a Jersey girl and all, I bet it’s totally the Bon Jovi version.

Cyn’s Advice for Morgan on Her Big Debut

Watch out for pissed off fairies.

Based on the pissed off fairies in FAIRY TALE, I think we should all make a mental note and follow that same advice. In the mean time, FAIRY TALE is a great summer read, and I wish Cyn and Morgan all the best on the big debut!

FAIRY TALE is available in book stores now, and also online through Indiebound and other Web retailers.
