    This was a fun read Really caught me off guard Very original and fun with a deeper message Valerie Williams is a teenage socialite who seems to have it all Designer clothes, a cute jock boyfriend, popularity and all the perks that come with it She receives an allowance and is never short on funds to get the most expensive and current fashion forward clothes While planning to buy her prom dress her mother drops a bomb on her life no allowance she has to get a job So she does what every teenager would do in her position has a complete hissy fit Does not help her though, the next day she is forced to go to work with her mom She has no idea her mom is a tooth fairy and she is going to love her job We follow Valerie on her journey through her new job and while she discovers just how shallow she has been While I was frustrated with her mistakes I cheered her on to make better decisions and deal with her problems Recommended for older teens and adults, this would be a great book to read with the teen in your life and give you opportunities to talk about the issues Valerie goes through and how she handles them.Rating 4 Stars

    Awesomeness This story took off running down a path that I d never expected Salazar has an interesting way with words It makes you feel like you re back in high school There s an easy flow to the novel while reading it This novel definitely makes you giggle It also makes you think about how you view life, about how you treat yourself, and about how you treat others This is a book about personal growth and families It s about the things that teens go through while coming into their own, but at the same time, is remarkably light hearted It was a brilliantly fun read The characters in this story are loveable They re so real You have to love each and every one of them They have real issues that are dealt with in a funny, supernatural way At the same time, they are so human that you can t help but feel for them Who didn t deal with relationship confusion at that age And who isn t trying to figure out what they want to do when they grow up Salazar highlights these issues and shows individuals dealing with them in amazing ways, with extra complications.As a whole this was a brilliantly light hearted tale that you can t help but get lost in I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it.Please note that I received this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    I loved this book This book was an enchanting read, it leads you along as Valerie is discovering herself Taking you from the everyday world, into a magical one At first i didn t care for Valerie s snobby ways, but as the story goes along, you learned to see her as then just shallow She really comes into herself, replacing her old comfortable life, with one of the unfamilar She goes through a metamorphisis learning comfortable isn t the only way to live.She also finds herself falling out of puppy love with her highschool boyfriend, for a guy with substance I rooted her on, and I laughed a ton as I read this book Brandi has a unique way to take a story and make it highly addicting and suitable for all ages With her clever wording and beautiful detail, I was pulled into the world of faeries.My only problem, is wanting her to get on the ball and write another one I want to see what adventures Valerie goes on next

    Received e book through the Authors Requesting Reviews ARR program on Goodreads for an honest review also posted on .com under Leanne GoonFaerie Tales The Misfortune of a Teenage Socialite is told by the point of view of Valerie Williams, the most popular girl in Humansville High, who takes a job at her mother s company, Enamel Wear, Inc., after her parents decide she needs to understand the value of a dollar There, she discovers she is actually a tooth fairy and must learn the tools of the trade from none other than Goderick Rick Mandrake, the weird Goth guy at school who engages in staring contests with her in class As she takes on new responsibilities, she begins to examine her character and her new feelings for Rick and another fairy, Vincent Collins, which conflict with her having a human boyfriend, Calvin I thought Salazar did a respectable job in making Valerie s character likeable, despite her materialistic outlook and her self absorbed attitude in the beginning of the story I enjoyed her growth into a mature and caring person to both her family and her friends In addition, I liked how her romance with Rick developed and how she subsequently had to be honest to herself about her relationship with Calvin Moreover, Salazar did an admirable job with the witty dialogue, although there were grammatical errors and mistaken brand names e.g Louis Vinton instead of Louis Vuitton On the other hand, I did have a few issues with the story I thought the love triangle with Rick and Vincent was a little unbelievable it was hard to reconcile that she had feelings so quickly for Vincent after knowing him for such a short time Likewise, I thought it also unrealistic that the mystery of the tampered teeth was repeatedly ignored by Valerie It seemed to be glazed over and left up in the air probably to form the basis for a sequel Lastly, I felt the end was abruptly wrapped up, such that I was questioning how and why Valerie came to her decisions about her love life and her tooth fairy future.Overall, this book was an average read I thought it had a rather unique concept, but the story and characters didn t captivate me I don t believe I am the demographic of the intended reader, so I would recommend this only to young readers, who want a quick, fast paranormal read.

    Review I have the pleasure of receiving a copy from an honest review The story introduces us to Valerie Williams, a junior in high school, a cheerleader, and who happens to be dating the best looking guy in school the quarterback for the football team She s like your typical stereotype popular girl who only cares about looking perfect, dating the perfect guy, having the perfect friends, and having the newest clothes She plans to marry her high school boyfriend, and spend the rest of her life not working and shopping She s so into herself she doesn t really pay attention to everyone else but expects them to pay attention to her.Everything changes when her parents make her get a job working at her mom s work Since Valerie has spent so much time on herself she has no idea what her mother does for a job She drives with her mom that night, arriving at a old run down building, upon entering the elevator her mother takes her into a world she thought was only fantasy She learns that she s a faerie with one day wings, and her new job is a tooth faerie She s partnered up with Rick Mandrake the second hottest guy in school if he wasn t into goth After a few mishaps her first night Valerie knows her life will never be the same.Through out the story we watch Valerie go from the selfish once popular girl to the unpopular girl you can t help falling in love with She looses her boyfriend when he learns that she s a faerie it s just to much for him to deal with but thankfully Rick is there to pick up the pieces Throughout the story I watch as Valerie grow as a character I rooted for even felt sad for her when it didn t always go the way I wanted it too I couldn t put it down, it sucked me in right away I love the character development they are so well written you feel like you know them I had so many emotions when I read the book, I had moments where I laughed, cheered, was even sad, and I had some angry moments where I wanted to scream at Valerie but in the end I love it It was a beautifully written story I would recommend to anyone who loves paranormal books.

    At first I thought the story was going go something like Ah poor little rich girl her parents are not giving her any money for shopping and expecting her to get a job I didn t know if I was going to be able to finish it However it changes from poor little girl to in your face this is your life and you have to learn the value of a dollar, grow up and stop being a little you know what She no longer the popular female in her school, she no longer has time for shopping, she barely has time to sleep and try to stay awake during her classes Her boyfriend has dumped her and her friends have replaced her, she is feeling the effects of being an outcast No longer with the trendiest Prada, Gucci or up to date fashion she is out of the in group and in with the norms.Her mother finds her a job at her job Enamel Wear Inc but refuses to tell her what the job entails until they get there The surprise she gets is a whopper Although she feels that they are pulling her leg she decide to go along with it She can not believe who they partnered her with non other than her arch nemesis since they were in the sixth grade next door Goth neighbor Rick who by the way is a hoooottie There is also another hottie that works at Enamel that she also gets to be partnered with when her and Rick stay out to late one evening and that is Vince a sort of bad boy that gets her in serious problems with Rick.This story had me laughing and yelling at Val throughout the book Sometimes she just acted like a tramp She wanted to have her cake and eat it too and what s wrong with that power to her right males do that sort of thing all the time it s about time females stepped into those shoes as well I would have loved to have those two to myself as well.http www.barnesandnoble.com w faerihttp www.

    I really enjoyed this book The tooth fairy theme was refreshing and original I liked how the heroine, Valerie, transitioned from spoiled, self centered teen queen to caring, considerate woman, for the most part Her self discovering journey was a little rushed in some places and there was a couple times when I was confused about what was going on but, I liked how the author kept the reader guessing There was some frustration, like how she bounced back and forth a few times but Val is still young and her actions are actually typical for a girl her age I do have to say that the ending was extremely satisfying I won t give away any info but she ended up where she should ve, in my opinion I do wish two things one, that it was a longer story with detail into the mystery surrounding the company, and two, that the background information about her mom and Frank had been played out a little , otherwise, I found this to be a terrific read appropriate for any age.

    This book was a cute take on an age old tale Valerie goes from being a normal self absorbed teen to discovering she is a tooth faerie Valerie seems to have it all she has the jock boyfriend, is popularm and has all the latest fashions She soon learns she isn t as happy as she thought she was Valerie s mom tells her she needs to get a job and breaks it to her she will be working with her She soon learns that job is as a tooth faerie She is paired with Rick and soon starts to discover herself She realizes a lot of what she thought was important isn t I loved that this book was the type of story that would appeal to the average teenager It is truly a coming of age story I love that the author really captured the essence of teenage life and what they deal with She made me feel like I was reliving those years Overall a great read and I highly recommend it.

    I really wanted to strangle Valerie in the beginning of this book But thankfully she grew mature with her trials and tribulations Even though this is a Fae book Val s problems were realistic All in all a fun read.

    I didn t really enjoy the style of storytelling employed in this novel Nevertheless, I think there were some really interesting conceptual things going on I just didn t connect on an emotional level with any of the characters or find myself drawn into the plot Still, the author s rhetorical strategy was clearly apparent in the development of the main protagonist, Val.Short review Pros Narrative voice Wonderful job with this Interesting Concept and a new take on tooth faeries I think, not an expert I thought the cover was gorgeous And I was interested from very early on about the black wings vs the white.Cons Grammar, Usage and Mechanics although it did seem to improve the further in the reader went they were annoying, but they didn t inhibit the understanding of the sentences Told, not Shown a few threads that weren t fully developed one might call them loose.Longer review The author did a great job with narrative voice When I started reading I got an immediate sense of who Val was the style of language as she explained her world and life was perfect I could hear her smacking her gum as she begrudgingly gave me the explanation I wasn t worthy of Val is that prissy, preppy, beautiful high school girl that doesn t care about anyone but herself And then her life gets complicated in a new way cause you know, being a socialite is hard work.Her parents force her to get a job which wrecks her whole life No really Those selfish jerks Sorry See what I meant about narrative voice Of course, these parents don t seem to care that her life is turning upside down that she is getting less than four hours of sleep before school, that her grades are dropping, or that she is undergoing several personal crises Wait though They aren t completely neglectful they will ground her several times for staying out with her various men.And yes, they are multitude And she pingpongs among them all the while questioning why she doesn t have of a backbone And providing phrases assuring readers that male __ is actually really great, stunningly empathetic, super hot and supportive and totally perfect What is frustrating is that there is little development of any of these characters Readers receive physical attributes and are told about these other perks They rarely come out in the story events Add this to the time jumps, where three months disappears with nothing exciting to report than things getting strained between girl and boyfriend __, and the story feels a little incomplete There is a lot of tell, but not a lot of show And plot points that enter into the story through highly coincidental and contrived events slip out of focus only to be neatly wrapped up but not quite at the end The pacing was a concern, as was the tendency to gloss over huge details 3 months here, 2 there, etc The full explanation of the tooth fairy business The reason her parents were grossly incompetent in every department EXCEPT and maybe also, given the latter plot boys Just missing pieces The framework is good, and the characterization of Val totally believable but since she isn t particularly likable for most maybe all of the book, it is hard for that characterization to carry the whole plot.And then there were some technical writing issues If the word had a homonym, chances were it was used in the place of the correct spelling My personal favorite was foe leather I loved the idea that Val was trying to convince the reader of her conscientious PETA she says Peta awareness when she didn t know how to spell faux so I kept in mind that the spelling might be part of the character but the issue wasn t isolated to Val s narration In the same section, Val discusses patent leather as though it is animal friendly weird.All in all, it really wasn t my type of read, but I can see that many people have enjoyed it Fans of the love equals triangle or square, etc turned into aww love plots would probably find this quite enjoyable Especially because every many that Val manages to attract is totally beautiful and loyal with only slight imperfections that they are willing to spend oodles of time trying to fix The book is a quick read and Val does evolve throughout the book, although I am not sure precisely the message that this transformation is intended to send There are several possibilities, and since I wasn t really connecting with the book, I don t feel like I am one to guess at it.
