Book Synopsis:

Bex Carter meant well. She always means well. Somehow she keeps getting her best friends Chirpy, Lily-Rose, and Marishca into trouble. Bex wants to find a way to make it up to them. When she wishes for fairies on her twelfth birthday, Bex has no idea what she's in for. The good news- her wish is granted. The bad news- these are not your ordinary fairies. These fairies have major issues.

One fairy is missing a wing. One is allergic to pixie dust. One fairy gets airsick and another has mismatched wings. On top of that, every wish they grant for Bex and her friends ends up being a disaster.

Aside from that, life is no picnic for Bex. Ms. Warbler and Aunt Jeanie (also known as Aunt Meanie) seem to hate her. Her father is in prison for embezzlement and her mother has taken off to God only knows where. Aunt Jeanie is forcing Bex to become friends with Ava G., the meanest girl in school. Bex is the biggest kid in the sixth grade and the other kids won't let her forget it. On top of all that, the school is threatening to shut down most of the school's talent programs to do budget cuts.

With all these problems, the last thing Bex needs is fairies causing more trouble. Unfortunately, these fairies have a secret of their own. Ages 8 and up.


A wonderful read for girls ages 8-12 years old. Fairylicious deals with many of the issues middle grade students deal with, such as popularity and trying to fit in. I would highly recommend this book as one that your children should this summer. Tiffany Nicole Smith does a wonderful job at bringing difficult issues into the story while crafting a storyline that young girls are sure to love. After all, what little girl doesn't want to read about fairies?
