Should this be nominated for Teens' Top Ten? Why?
4 Better than most

She packs her bags and heads to Avalon, where magic and technology can co-exist. Dana's father is a high-ranking member of the Fae; that much she knows. But it isn't until she arrives she realizes how high-up he really is. Swept up in a struggle for power, Dana uncovers a secret about herself and her entire family heritage.
