Caws in the Hall

Val lives in a world that’s normal –
Except for her grandmother,
Who sees fairies, ghosts, and others.
Val doesn’t believe a word she says,
Until she sees with her own eyeballs
A raven boy haunting the school halls! 
Everyone except a rather strange boy
Thinks she just wants to pretend,
And so the boy becomes Val’s friend.
Will they manage to stay close
When it becomes very plain
That one of them is not really human?
