How to Ditch Your Fairy by Justine Larbalestier (who is married to Scott Westerfeld!! of the Uglies series!!) is about a girl named Charlie who is sick of her fairy. She goes to an all-sports-school and lives in New Avalon, a place where some people have specific-good-luck fairies that help them with things. i.e. a shopping fairy or a parking fairy like Charlie. Charlie hates her parking fairy and wishes she had a all-boys-like-you fairy like Fiorenze. Charlie has been walking everywhere in an attempt to freeze out her fairy, but it's taking forever. Is there a quicker way? And will she survive it?
This book is very clever and the dialogue is fast and snappy. I couldn't really predict what would happen next and it was fun to see the consequences of Charlie's choices. A good read!
