Not my favorite, but I could see it appealing to some middle school readers. A lot of action and a main character who finds out she is a fairy. The setting in Kansas during the dust bowl was interesting, too.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375869387, Hardcover)

This new trilogy will capture the hearts of readers who adore Libba Bray's The Diviners. Callie LeRoux lives in Slow Run, Kansas, helping her mother run their small hotel and trying not to think about the father she's never met. Lately all of her energy is spent battling the constant storms plaguing the Dust Bowl and their effects on her health. Callie is left alone, when her mother goes missing in a dust storm. Her only hope comes from a mysterious man offering a few clues about her destiny and the path she must take to find her parents in "the golden hills of the west" (California). Along the way she meets Jack a young hobo boy who is happy to keep her company—there are dangerous, desperate people at every turn. And there's also an otherworldly threat to Callie. Warring fae factions, attached to the creative communities of American society, are very aware of the role this half-mortal, half-fae teenage girl plays in their fate.
