Book Review: Fairy Bad Day

Title: Fairy Bad Day
Author: Amanda Ashby
Published: June 2011
While most students at Burtonwood Academy get to kill demons and goblins, fifteen-year-old Emma gets to rid the world of little annoying fairies with glittery wings and a hipster fashion sense. She was destined to be a dragon slayer, but cute and charming Curtis stole her spot.
Then she sees a giant killer fairy - and it's invisible to everyone but her! If Emma has any chance of stopping this evil fairy, she's going to need help. Unfortunately, the only person who can help is Curtis. And now, not only has he stolen her dragon-slayer spot, but maybe her heart as well!
Why does she think it's going to be a fairy bad day?

My Thoughts:
Fairy Bad Day was, just like the title hints, a fun read! Even if it dealt with death and danger, it was a fairly fast and light read.

The main character, Emma, was a really cool girl. She had humour, and was the best of her classmates at slaying supernatural beings. So, naturally she was devestated when she wasn't assigned to the most attractive job as a dragon slayer. Not only because she had most experience in that area, but mostly because her mother was a dragon slayer - until she was killed.

Not only one, but two surprising secrets were revealed near the ending - and they really took me by surprise. Well done, ms Ashby!

Cover Thoughts:
Love it! The outfit, the sword piercing the butterfly (or is it a fairy?) and the girl's pose - just fierce!

Rating: 4 of 5
