When Simon Irving meets Jilly Coppercorn, it's in front of one of his largest paintings, and she's nodding her head and saying, "Yes, yes, definitely." He stammers up the courage for an invitation, and they wander through a park in downtown Newford talking about music, and commercialism, and trying to survive on an artist's salary. On their third date, he learns more about survival and homelessness and struggle than he's ever imagined. And when he follows her into the woods one evening, he learns about wonders and horrors and the true hidden nature of the world. Simon knows about secrets. He's known about secrets since his mother started her cooking experiments, since he started hiding the truth from his classmates, since Antiflux turned his life on its head. Simon knows secrets, but the truth is, he's never really been very good at keeping them. Looking down at the glittering fairy in the palm of his hand, he knows it will be different this time. This is one secret he will keep forever – or at least until someone decides to build zipper teeth on fae land.
