Phillipa Fisher's Fairy Godsister
Hola! Next up is Phillipa Fisher's Fairy Godsister, by Liz Kessler. Phillipa Fisher is a normal girl with abnormal parents. They dance in the kitchen, don't care about homework and drive a rather unusual car. When Phillipa's best friend moves away to live on a ranch, Phillipa is plunged into despair. Then, one day Phillipa picks a seemingly special daisy, and her life turns around. This book really makes you wonder what would really happen if your wishes came true, and makes you not take your family for grated so much, even with all their quirks. I really enjoyed this book, but it is hard to stand by and watch the characters do things that you really don't want them to do! Although it is written in the same style as the Emily Windsnap books it is an interesting take on the "be careful what you wish for" stories. Three and a half stars.
