Fairy Bad Day by Amanda Ashby
Release Date: June 9, 2011
While most students at Burtonwood Academy get to kill demons and goblins, fifteen-year-old Emma gets to rid the world of little annoying fairies with glittery wings and a hipster fashion sense. She was destined to be a dragon slayer, but cute and charming Curtis stole her spot. Then she sees a giant killer fairy - and it's invisible to everyone but her! If Emma has any chance of stopping this evil fairy, she's going to need help. Unfortunately, the only person who can help is Curtis. And now, not only has he stolen her dragon-slayer spot, but maybe her heart as well! Why does she think it's going to be a fairy bad day? - Goodreads.com
This was a cute, fun read that had lots of humor and a great story. I wasn't sure what I would think of it because I'm not a big fan of fairy books, but this one was an exception. Emma was a fun character to listen to. She was funny, determined to have her way and be a dragon slayer, and her interactions with the fairies were so funny I couldn't help but laugh aloud many times.
It was entertaining to see hers and Curtis' relationship develop, as of course, he has what she wants. But when they begin to work together, the story really amps up. The strange, hidden fairy is much like a dragon, so in a way, Emma is in her element trying to battle this strange being. Add to that the fact that her mother is very intimately connected with this creature's appearance, and we have some great conflict here.
This was one of those stories that pure escapism and you just had to love it. Fun and entertaining!
