Hi GirlMoguls, it’s Rose with another book review. I just got to read Philippa Fisher’s Fairy Godsister by Liz Kessler (she writes the Emily Windsap Mermaid books). In this new book Philippa Fisher is a slightly akward girl with even more awkard parents. With her best friend moving far away, Philippa’s not looking forward to a new school year. She wishes her parents were more “normal” and that she was way cooler at school (hmm, like who doesn’t?)
But Philippa gets the answer to her wishes when the Fairies send her a fairy godsister who can grant her wishes. However, daisy – the fairy godsister hates humans and thinks Philippa really is a loser. But still a mission is a mission, so Philippa gets her wishes – a more normal family, coolness and popularity. Of course these things don’t exactly turn out the way she expects.
Philippa and Daisy must learn to work together to get Philippa’s life back on track – and Philippa has to overcome a terrible case of stage fright, in order to find her true talent.
All in all, a pretty good tale, and I liked the idea that fairy world is organized – and that fairies are sent on missions. It’s also nice to see how Daisy and Philippa work out there differences (and how Philippa learns how to be happy just the way she is.
There’s a brand new Philippa and Daisy story that came out this fall, so if you liked the first one, you can check out Philippa Fisher and the Dream-Maker’s Daughter.
