If you lived in a world where everyone had a personal fairy, what kind would you want?


A clothes-shopping fairy (The perfect outfit will always be on sale!)
A loose-change fairy (Pretty self-explanatory.)
A never-getting-caught fairy (You can get away with anything. . . .)

Unfortunately for Charlie, she's stuck with a parking fairy-if she's in the car, the driver will find the perfect parking spot. Tired of being treated like a personal parking pass, Charlie devises a plan to ditch her fairy for a more useful model. At first, teaming up with her archenemy (who has an all-the-boys-like-you fairy) seems like a good idea. But Charlie soon learns there are consequences for messing with fairies-and she will have to resort to extraordinary measures to set things right again.

About the Author:

Justine Larbalestier [Lar-bah-LUS-tee-ay] is the author of Liar and the award-winning Magic or Madness trilogy. She was born and raised in Sydney, Australia, and divides her time between Sydney and New York City (with sojourns in Mexico, New Zealand, Thailand, and anywhere else that strikes her fancy). She is married to author Scott Westerfeld. www.justinelarbalestier.com

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6–10—Fourteen-year-old Charlie, a fair-to-middling student at the "all sports, all the time" New Avalon high school, is cursed with a parking fairy (the driver finds the perfect parking spot if she's in the car) and determined to do whatever it takes to swap fairies with her archenemy, Fiorenze, who's been "blessed" with an every-boy-will-like-you fairy. But what Charlie doesn't know is that the grass really isn't greener on the other side, as proven by the many complications that ensue when she successfully ditches her parking fairy and finds herself saddled with slavish and unwelcome attention from every boy in sight. Kate Atkinson narrates Justine Larbalesier's novel (Bloomsbury, 2008), and her Aussie accent perfectly captures Charlie's sarcastic and smart character along with her struggle to figure out what she really wants and what price she's willing to pay for it. Filled with casual conversational slang, the story benefits from a glossary at the end of the book. The author's fans will find that this latest offering "doos" to the max—Cindy Lombardo, Cleveland Public Library, OH
