City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
This book is about a girl named Clare. She’s an ordinary girl who has an ordinary life. Until one day her ordinary world was turned upside down. It all started when she was at a teen club with her best friend. She was having a pretty good time when something unusual caught her eye. Even though it was far away, she thought she saw a murder in progress. She saw the group follow a boy into a strange room, so she told her friend to get the bouncer while she rushed over to the storage room and slipped in silently. She hid in the shadows and watched. The group was torturing the boy, whipping him with a weird glowing gold whip. When she finally gets enough of this, she steps out and intervenes. The whole group was surprised to see her, even the boy who was getting tortured. She soon finds out that the world she thought she knew had another side to it. An unseen side that only she and a selected few other humans can see. She finds out that myths and fairy tales are actually real and that her life intertwines and plays an important part in the role and destiny of this invisible other world.
