Lament: The Faerie Queen's Deception by Maggie Stiefvater
Deirdre is an extremely gifted harpist who always throws up before a big performance. When she arrives at a competition she meets Luke, a mysterious boy who seems to know lots about her and joins her onstage in an impromptu award-winning performance. As Luke shows up Dee's life more often she finds other strange things happening - she can read minds and move objects just by thinking about them. She can also see the fairies all around her and that they are not happy about that. And after reading Luke's mind she sees that he is an assassin working for the fairy queen and that she is his latest target. Dee doesn't know what to do when the boy she is falling in love with is also the one who is supposed to kill her.
