Book Review – Fairy, Texas By Margo Bond Collins

Book Blurb:

Fairy, Texas, a small town like any other.

Laney Harris didn’t want to live there. When her mother remarried and moved them to a town where a date meant hanging out at the Sonic, Laney figured that “boring” would have a whole new meaning. A new stepsister who despised her and a high school where she was the only topic of gossip were bad enough. But when she met the school counselor (and his terminal bad breath), she grew suspicious. Especially, since he had wings that only she could see.

And then there were Josh and Mason, two gorgeous glimmering-eyed classmates whose interest in her might not be for the reasons she hoped. Not to mention that dead guy she nearly tripped over in gym class. She was right. Boring took on an entirely new dimension in Fairy, Texas –


This book brought me back to the times when I was younger and loving the movie The Lost Boys (yes, I’m showing my age.) Fairy, Texas is suited for a person who enjoys young adult/teen fiction, in my opinion. It is a genre I don’t spend much time visiting and I did enjoy reading this book. Like I said, it brought back the teen movies from my memory…good times.

The twists in the book were well written and the plots kept me engaged. The only discouraging point of the book was the ending. I don’t want to give out the ending, for those of you that still need to read this, but I don’t get it. How did Laney end up being the ‘being’ she was in the story. Maybe I missed something while I was reading, or thinking too hard. Overall, this was a good story.

If you have a different opinion, please share. If you have a book recommendation, let me know. Just post these things in the comments and I will get back to you.

Happy reading!
