Fairylicious by Tiffany Smith (Review By Shelby)


**Review By Shelby From The Nerd Girl Page**

Synopsis: Bex Carter meant well. She always means well. Somehow she keeps getting her best friends 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 and 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 without a trace. Also, 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. With all these problems, the last thing Bex needs is fairies causing more trouble. Unfortunately, these fairies have a secret of their own.

Fairylicious is a cute book for any young fairy lover. I really loved the characters in this book, even the dreadfully awful Ava G. I enjoyed the friendship that the girls shared and how real Bex’s day to day life is. There’s not a 9-12 year old girl out there who can’t relate to at least some of the things that Bex deals with on a daily basis, from weekend sleepovers with friends to horrible teachers to mean bullies.
As an adult, I was surprised at the range of emotion that I felt when reading Fairylicious. The author’s writing style really allows you to connect with Bex’s character. I cheered on all of her great ideas and boo’d when things didn’t go her way. I laughed out loud when Bex and her group performed Mary Had a Little Lamb at the big school show and I wanted to cry for her when Ava G was so mean to her in the locker room in front of all of the other girls.
I think the ending of this book could have used a little more something…elaboration maybe? I think I would have liked the end more if it had ended with a response letter from Arturo rather than Bex’s letter to him. Other than that, I think this book was excellent. A must read for all young girls who still believe in all things magical.
