How To Ditch Your Fairy Review

307 pages
Welcome to New Avalon, where everyone has a personal fairy. Though invisible to the naked eye, a personal fairy, like a specialized good luck charm, is vital to success. And in the case of the students at New Avalon Sports High, it might just determine whether you make the team, pass a class, or find that perfect outfit. But for 14-year-old Charlie, having a Parking Fairy is worse than having nothing at all—especially when the school bully carts her around like his own personal parking pass. Enter: The Plan. At first, teaming up with arch-enemy Fiorenza (who has an All-The-Boys-Like-You Fairy) seems like a great idea. But when Charlie unexpectedly gets her heart’s desire, it isn’t at all what she thought it would be like, and she’ll have resort to extraordinary measures to ditch her fairy. The question is: will Charlie herself survive the fairy ditching experiment? From the author of the acclaimed Magic or Madness trilogy, this is a delightful story of fairies, friendships, and figuring out how to make your own magic.  


Review:
I finished reading this book in a couple of hours but only because it was such a good read. Extremely lighthearted and fun describes this novel perfectly. I loved the concept of a world where everyone has their own fairy! Of course some people aren't always pleased with what fairy they have. Charlie is extremely unhappy with her fairy and we get to experience her journey to get rid of it once and for all. Can she get rid of her fairy? Will she ultimately get a new fairy that she actually likes? All of these questions were answered in an enjoyable way as I read this book. The world created in this novel is extreme and funny at the same time. You never know what will happen next because the storyline is so unusual. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a new and fun book to read or pass time with.
