I dislike romances. And when I say dislike, I mean I'd rather have rabid hamsters gnaw at my eyeballs than read a sappy and/or tragic love story. That being said, zombies and mutated flesh craving monsters pretty much make everything better. They even got me reading romances.

In Enchanted Ivy, college entrance is even more daunting than average. Lily desperately wants to attend
Princeton, her grandfather's alma mater. Then a secretive group of alumni offer her automatic entrance to Princeton if she can find the Ivy Key. It turns out that Princeton has a door to the magical world of Faerie and the Ivy Key will let people travel between worlds. Lily quickly learns that many magical beings are not very friendly, so it's good that there are two boys who are willing to help protect her. Unfortunately they might each have their own agenda too.
This story was a little slow to start, but turned into a lot of fun. There was magic, mystery, and a little romance. You know there is more going on than Lily is aware of, but it's hard to figure it out. The storyline was creative, the characters were well developed, and the result was an enchanting read.
