Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston
Seventeen-year-old Kelley gets promoted from understudy to lead actress in a small New York City theater group when the lead actress breaks her ankle. Sitting in Central Park practicing her lines from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, she encounters Sonny, who thinks at first that she sees him and is talking to him. As a changeling, a mortal boy who was stolen from his family and raised by faeries, Sonny’s mission is to prevent evil creatures from the faerie world getting into the mortal world and hurting humans. Kelley and Sonny’s lives continue to intersect, and they discover they share some crucial connections. The author has written two sequels: Darklight and Tempestuous. Fans of Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series will love this one!
