To Be A Fae Queen by Tricia Copeland follows Titania, a young Fae princess, now the heir to the throne of Aubren, after her four brothers were killed in a war. Their deaths have sent her mother into a catatonic state, and Titania is struggling to cope. She wants to help her mother but cannot reach her. When her father tells her that some precious crystals were stolen, they suspect their enemy, the Kobold, of stealing them. Titania is determined to prove she will make a good queen and that she deserves the role, so she sets out to discover what happened to them. Not everyone is happy with her future rise to power. It soon seems like everyone is against her, but that won't stop Titania. She will overcome her fears to show she can be a good and just leader to her people.

Tricia Copeland has written an interesting story with To Be A Fae Queen, which is definitely a coming of age story as Titania discovers what she is made of. It moves at a good pace, and Titania is a well-developed character who you can root for. Though she doubts herself and deals with anxiety, she doesn't back down, and I think that is an important message for young adult readers - not to give in to anxiety but to work through it. Though many won't take on such an important role as royalty, anxiety is universal. I think it will appeal to young adult paranormal and fantasy fans. I would definitely recommend it.
