Have to agree, oh dear. That title seems to get a lot of usage... My
immediate thought on seeing the title was the book of that title by Barbara
Hambly, which btw is highly recommended. Then I went on to read the
description and discovered one of my absolute favourite YA books (apart from
DWJ, of course) whose original title I think is just fine as it is.
