The Treachery of Beautiful Things
The Treachery of Beautiful Things by Ruth Frances Long
Published: August 16, 2012

A darkly compelling mix of romance, fairy tale, and suspense from a new voice in teen fiction
The trees swallowed her brother whole, and Jenny was there to see it. Now seventeen, she revisits the woods where Tom was taken, resolving to say good-bye at last. Instead, she's lured into the trees, where she finds strange and dangerous creatures who seem to consider her the threat. Among them is Jack, mercurial and magnetic, with secrets of his own. Determined to find her brother, with or without Jack's help, Jenny struggles to navigate a faerie world where stunning beauty masks some of the most treacherous evils, and she's faced with a choice between salvation or sacrifice--and not just her own.

This cover is stunning. I am in love. And I know I shouldn't be tempted by he cover, but I am. I still haven't learned my lesson after reading numerous books with beautiful covers. And the concept sounds interesting, but the cover is SUPER pretty!
