HOW TO DITCH YOUR FAIRY, by Justine Larbalestier

If you had a parking fairy, you'd want to ditch it too!

If you had a parking fairy, you'd want to ditch it too!

Everyone in New Avalon has a fairy.  Charlie has a parking fairy that makes sure the driver always get a great parking spot.  Fiorenze has a fairy that makes every guy who sees her fall in love with her.  Both girls hate their fairies and are determined to get rid of them.

 

So when Fiorenze proposes a swap, Charlie goes along.  After all, what’s to not like about having every boy crazy about you?

 

This is a really fun book, but make sure you find the “dictionary” of Australian slang on p. 303.  It’ll be doos!
