81 books down, 155 days to go! We can do it!

Hey all! I finished How To Ditch Your Fairy by Justine Larbalestier. Charlie, 14, lives in New Avalon, where almost evryone has a fairy, their own little personal fairy. Charlie has a parking cars fairy, she can park any car perfectly in under 10 seconds. But Charlie doesn't like her fairy, she doesn't drive and doesn't like the exhaust. Charlies best friend Rochelle has a clothes fairy that makes everything she tries on perfect on her. And Charlie's enemy? She has a fairy tht will make any guy she want fall in love with her. So to get her fairy to go away she refuses to ever get in the car and drive. So she and her enemy temporarily put up with eachother to come up with a plan to switch their fairies, and she learns to be careful about what she wishes for. With"every boy will love you" fairy, girls turn on Charlie, and she begins to wonder if her crush Steffi likes her or is he's just under the spell of the fairy. Charlie is a like-able girl, but she just doesn't know.
This book was alright, but the setting seemed to be in New Avalon London, if there is such a thing. The slang is kinda strange but overall this book was okay, 2.5/5.

Starfish don't have brains.

Love, Lizzy S.
