FaerieBook - 2016
Just days before her eighteenth birthday, Lila has resolved to end her life. The horror or becoming an adult, and leaving her childhood behind, has broken her heart. Faerie is the fierce yet gently unfolding story of a hyper-imaginative girl who is on a collision course to womanhood. She likens herself to a half-human fairy creature who does not belong in the earthly world; but in the cold light of day she is a psychiatric patient at a hospital, where she is being treated by anorexia--her sickness driven by the irrational need to undo nature and thwart the passage of time.
