Step away from the wand . . .
Elly Knottleweed-Eversprightly comes from a long line of famous fairies. But just because one of her ancestors wrote the historic Fairy Code doesn't mean Elly loves being a fairy. In fact, she hates it. She can't stand the itchy tutus, would rather ride her skateboard than fly the Fairy Flock, and messes up all of her magic spells. Plus, she's been kicked out of two fairy academies for turning her Synchronized Flying Instructor purple and catching a flyrus (it wasn't her fault!). Then Elly meets Jess, a human girl who helps Elly fix her malfunctioning wand. Elly never dreamed being friends with a human could make her life so much better. But can Jess help keep Elly from being kicked out of Fairy School--forever?

Our customer reviews

Elly is a fairy who's been kicked out of two fairy academies and is close to being kicked out of her third. She longs to go to a human school, but only really good fairies get to go to those. When the Head Fairy of her school threatens to expel her if she doesn't shape up in a week, Elly is faced with a choice: be a fairy and wear the itchy uniform, or disguise herself as a human. When she meets a girl named Jess who has a knack for inventions but needs help with finishing her volcano science project in time to get it to school, Elly decides to help her out. Can she figure out a way to help both Jess and herself? A quick, funny read for fairy lovers. The characters are amusing and fun to read about. The plot keeps moving and does a good job of holding the reader's interest. The illustrations are well-done and add a lot to the story and its humor. Readers who like fantasy, fairies, and realistic fiction with a mix of magic will enjoy reading FAIRY SCHOOL DROPOUT.show more
