2. Wings by Aprilynne Pike (Wings quartet Book 1)

When a blossom starts growing out of Laurel’s back, she discovers that she is a faerie who must protect the gateway to her home world.

3. The Iron Prince by Julie Kagawa (Iron Fey series Book 1)

On her 16th birthday, a girl learns she is a princess from another world, and that the already-in-disagreement Winter and Summer Courts of the faerie world are threatened by the rising Iron Court.

4. Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire (October Daye series Book 1)

Half-faerie, half-human October Daye must return to her private investigator job after spending 40 years in a pond transformed into a koi fish.  (Note:  This book is in the adult section of the library but has content similar to many teen books.)
