Elly, a young fairy who dislikes being a fairy. She feels out of place because she does not want to be the glitterized, girly fairy that they teach girl fairies to be. She inadvertently gets caught by a human, which is a big no no in the fairy world. A mistake that will change her outlook on life.
This series starts out pretty similar to most juvenile fairy stories. The difference in this one is that the main character, Elly, dislikes being a fairy. Most juvenile fairy stories the fairy loves being a fairy but is too awkward to perform fairy magic. With the difference in the story, it makes this story memorable and somewhat realistic.
I am not a fan of the book cover. It is okay but it does not grab me. Although I am not the demographic for the book so it really does not matter so much for the readers. I also do not remember much magic in the book. I always prefer more magic.
What the reader may get out of this book is not really whimsical magic feeling but more realistic tween girl issues with a little magic.
