    The Grimm Legacy de Polly Shulman (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: Although How To Ditch Your Fairy is set in an alternate version of our world, both of these witty, fast-paced modern-day fantasies raise the question of whether magic solves problems or just creates newer and more complicated ones.

I didn't realize this was a young adult novel into I was into it. At first the Australian young adult jargon was confusing but they do have a glossary in the back of the book. An interesting take on life. ( )

I wanted more from this book than it gave me.

I wanted super seekrit conspiracy theories about the Ours and creepy, big brotheresque, drugs-in-the-drinking-water, evil mind rays that affected the east and west coasts’ perceptions of one another.

I wanted fairies to be a government cover-up for weird military related drug trials.

I wanted Larbalestier (whose blog I love) to stop using words like doos and doxhead and pulchy because it made me want to punch characters in the face, and violence is wrong. You can’t see me, but I just nodded sagely as I typed that.

I wanted more. Clearly.

But I’m giving it two stars because maybe if you don’t want all those things it’s a better novel. I am too biased by my need for deep dark secrets to judge it fairly. ( )

the story of this book is great. its hard to find a book with a good story because every idea has been used ,but this book's story is unique. a lot of this book is sports though and im not really a sports person but the rest of this book was good. one thing i liked about the book is how at the start of each chapter it keeps track of whats happening.

Oh, i needed this. Especially after my last book. This was light hearted and fun and just what i needed.
So, i regret to say i never finished the Magic or Madness trilogy... i can't recall why though... = ... anyway so this is technically the first thing by Justine Larbalestier that i've read.
It was adorable.
The story was set in this... hmm i dunno would it be a parallel world? Where kids go to school based on what they excel in (ex. the Sports school Charlie and her friends go to as opposed to the Arts school) and almost everyone has a fairy that helps them (or not) in some way.
Charlie has the sad fate of being stuck with a parking fairy. Which, you know, could be cool... but she hates cars and is only 14 so she can't... well drive... so it's pretty much a fail. Especially when she's picked up and used as a parking pass for a school bully (ok.. technically not a bully.. but i dunno what else i should call him...)
So, Charlie gets it in her head to get rid of her fairy... how? well don't get in cars, don't use any form of transportation, just walk. Everywhere.
Well... walking everywhere gets her into a lot of trouble and she slowly (or not.. actually it's rather quick) gathers demerits. (Demerits at a sports school = bad news)
So, she switches fairies with a girl who has an all-boys-like-me fairy. Yes. Panic ensues.
=)
My favorite aspect of this book was the slang and the language. It took me a bit to get used to it, but after i did i loved it. Watch... now i'm gonna catch my self saying 'doos' and 'injured' .... i will too... i'm not kidding.
So, an adorable book. A perfect light read. ( )

Larbalastier's gift for language and dialect comes through as clearly here as it did in Magic and Madness, but this book is a lot lighter, more fun, and funnier, with tons of brilliant little comedy licks arising from the interplay of different fairies in Charlie's social circle.
