How to Ditch Your Fairy by, Justine Larbalestier

How to Ditch Your Fairy by, Justine Larbalestier

From Book Cover: 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 a person’s success. It might determine whether you make a sports team, pass a class, or that perfect outfit. But for fourteen-year-old Charlie, having a parking fairy is worse than having nothing at all- especially when the school bully carts her around like his private parking pass.
Enter: The Plan. At first, teaming up with her archenemy, Fiorenze (who has an all-the-boys-like-you-fairy), seems like a great idea. But when Charlie unexpectedly gets her hearts desire, it isn’t at all how she thought it would be, and she’ll have to resort to extraordinary measures to set things right.

This was a cute YA book. Its set in, as the author says “an imaginary country perhaps a little in the future.” It had some interesting slang and am glad she put a glossary in the back to explain what these words meant but she did use one of my favorite words “ discombobulated” and it was fun to see someone else use it.
This was a light fun read I liked the different fairies the “Parking Fairy”, ’The Shopping Fairy”, “The All-Boys-Will-Like-You Fairy”. It was cute to see how you can be jealous of someone and find out that what they have is not all it’s cracked up to be. If you have teenagers who like a light fun read I recommend this one!
