How to Ditch Your Fairy
by Justine Larbalestier
Summary: Everyone she knows has a great personal fairy... her friend Rochelle has a clothes-shopping fairy and that annoying Fiorenze has an all-the-boys-like-you fairy... but what does Charlie have?...a parking fairy! She is 14-years-old, she can't drive, and she gets a parking fairy! Charlie works tirelessly to ditch her fairy, but she is in for many surprises when her efforts don't go quite as she planned.
Thoughts: How to Ditch Your Fairy is such a creative, entertaining book! I loved Charlie, her friends and all the hilarious fairies. Now that I know about personal fairies, I think I'd like to ditch mine; I certainly don't have the good-hair fairy, the stay-out-of-trouble fairy, or the never-getting-lost fairy, all of which could come in really handy! The Australian lingo laced throughout the book & the glossary at the back are such fun; readers can learn a "doos"new vocab! Fans of the I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You series, the Georgia Nicholson diaries, and the books by Meg Cabot might like to try this adorable new book.
