From the amazing imagination of bestselling author Holly Black, a mysterious and wonderful teen graphic novel masterpiece.
Rue Silver's life is not what it appears to be. Her mother is a faerie, and has been taken back to the faerie realm. As Rue goes to bring her back, she must travel deep into an inhuman world. At the same time, the faerie realm is venturing into our world too, and taking its toll on those Rue loves. When her grandfather's plans threaten Rue's city, she realizes that she's the only one who can stop him. But is Rue a human or a faerie? Where does she fit? How does she know the difference between love and enchantment?

Holly Black is the author of the bestselling series The Spiderwick Chronicles (with Tony DiTerlizzi), The Good Neighbors graphic novels, and the novels Tithe, Valiant, and Ironside. She currently lives in the realm of Western Massachusetts.
Ted Naifeh is the author and illustrator of many acclaimed graphic novels, including Polly and the Pirates, Courtney Crumrin and the Night Things, and Courtney Crumrin Tales: Portrait of the Warlock as a Young Man. He has also illustrated the popular Death Jr. and Gloomcookie series.
Grade 7 Up–This sequel to Kin (Scholastic, 2008) answers many of the questions that were left hanging in that book. Most importantly, readers will learn what happens to Rue Silver's plan to rescue her mother from the land of the faeries and about her grandfather's plot against humanity, which involves transforming human sacrifices into living trees. There are several powerful scenes in which Rue's friends are literally and figuratively seduced by faeries, with tragic consequences, but the most moving scenes involve Rue's parents. When Rue tries to free her mother, she is faced with the painful revelation that the woman has no interest in rejoining the human world. And her father is torn between his allegiance to his wife and his emotional connection to his human lover. Readers will need to be familiar with the first book in the series in order to understand what's going on, and there is a major cliff-hanger that should be resolved in the third volume. Unfortunately, even fans of Kin may have trouble following all of the plot points and keeping the characters straight. While Naifeh's haunting and textured black-and-white illustrations are captivating, Kith does not live up to the promise of Kin.–Andrea Lipinski, New York Public Library
