IllyriaMadeleine and Rogan are first cousins, best friends, twinned souls, each other's first love. Even within their large, disorderly family - all descendants of a famous actress - their intensity and passion for theater sets them apart. It makes them a little dangerous. When they are cast in their school's production of Twelfth Night, they are forced to face their separate talents and futures, and their future together. 
This stunning short novel, winner of the World Fantasy Award, is the perfect introduction to Elizabeth Hand's singular voice. Her many novels offer a window into what it means to create art, to experience it, to feel passionately about the world. Illyria throws her talent into high relief - it is magic on paper. (Summary from Goodreads)

My Thoughts: It was about "kissing cousins" and that part of it didn't really bother me. I could have done without the f-bombs. It did have a pretty good story and a good ending. Not sure that I would read it again and again though.
