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 fiind 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.
"At its core, this is a typical coming-of-age story, but the addition of the fairies, the slightly alternative setting, and the made-up slang make it much more." (School Library Journal)

A frustrated teenage girl story
The story had some good character banter. Some of it made my middle & high schoolers laugh. I found out that I wasn't the only listener in the car waiting for more.
She has a great accent with an Aussie lilt that could convey just the right teen emotional expressions. Her voice gave a good personification to the characters and made them come alive much more than reading them on a page.
I think it would be lost on any listener under ~8 years old.
not for me!
