Let me see how much I can remember of this book, I've been searching for it for years - it was one I originally dropped and wanted to give another chance.

I cannot remember the title or author. However, the cover was two younger people with very fair skin, pale eyes, and whitish hair (one's was longer than the other's, if I'm remembering right). Essentially, they looked like they might have albinism, though I don't think they did. One of them was holding a sword I think, and there was this stained glass design behind and on either side of them.

As for the plot, there was brief mention of these two kids in another world where one of them is some form of a bad omen before it moves on to the protagonist and what she's doing. In our world, this girl was with her father on a trip to England. Her father was either a researcher or a photographer and was obsessed with King Arthur, and they were doing something at the site of this old castle. This girl somehow ends up transported to the world where the two kids mentioned before are, and though I can't remember if this were the case or not, I think the plot was to get her home.

This book was one I read in middle school, which would be in the mid to late 2000's, 2010 at the latest. It was in the middle school's library, so it was probably aimed at teens or young adults. Definitely fiction, most likely in the fantasy genre somewhere. Any help finding this book would be greatly appreciated!

I haven't read this but one version of the cover is exactly as you describe: The Third Magic.

>2 rarm: I think your touchstone may be going to the wrong book? It's a different author. Here is the one I think is intended:

The Third Magic by Welwyn Wilton Katz

I read this book in grade 9 or 10 I think. I still remember it. The bad omen is that they are twin and the boy has silver hair, which is typically associated with women. The book has very strong male/female separations. His name was Arrdu. I keep remembering that line.

Her family name is something that appeared French and was mis-pronounced "LeFey" by locals. I think her and her dad were studying the supposed location of Camelot or Avalon.
