Golden Girl by Sarah Zettel is the is the second of the American Fairy books, which started with Dust Girl. Callie LeRoux has arrived in Los Angeles in the hopes of rescuing her parents from the Unseelie Court. Callie needs to find the connection between Hollywood and their prison.

Callie's never been to anywhere as busy as Los Angeles but she's growing used to the sorts of illusions that Hollywood is so famous for. She's got a better handle on her powers and she can sense fairy magic in others now.

Her ability to charm has also allowed her a chance to meet all sorts of new people. One of these is the adorable starlet, Ivy Bright. She's written like a fictional Shirley Temple, though I ended up imagining her more like Jeremy's pesky younger sister, Suzy, from Phineas and Ferb.

Zettel's descriptions of 1930s Hollywood as well as other California landmarks are spot on. She also has a wonderful turn of phrase; there were numerous times where I had to stop reading to share a favorite passage with my husband.

The battle that Callie is readying herself for is very similar to the one Dresden goes into in Summer Knight (review coming in August). Though aimed at a young adult audience, I found Callie's adventure more compelling and more fun to read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375869395, Hardcover)

   Fans of Libba Bray's The Diviners will love this stylish series' blend of fantasy and twentieth-century history.

Callie LeRoux has put her grimy, harrowing trip from the depths of the Dust Bowl behind her. Her life is a different kind of exciting now: she works at a major motion picture studio among powerful studio executives and stylish stars. Still nothing can distract her from her true goal. With help from her friend Jack and guidance from the great singer Paul Robeson, she will find her missing mother. But as a child of prophecy and daughter of the legitimate heir to the Unseelie throne, Callie poses a huge threat to the warring fae factions who've attached themselves to the most powerful people in Hollywood . . . and they are all too aware that she's within their reach.
