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 more allowance... she has to get a job. So she does wha

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, ...more

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 more 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

Faerie 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

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

At first I thought the story was going go something like.... Ah poor little rich girl her parents are not giving her any more 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 ...more

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 yo

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 ...more

I really wanted to strangle Valerie in the beginning of this book. But thankfully she grew more 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

Faerietales: The Misfortune of a Teenage Socialite
In this epic book, we follow the story of Val, the Queen Bee, you might say, the most adored and hated at the same time girl at school. We go through her transformation through this book, and how she finds true love. So, at first, she’s the most famous girl and had the perfect life: wealthy parents, the most attractive boy as her boyfriend, a group of followers always at her heels wherever she goes, a collection of signature dresses and accessori

This book was addicting! When I began to read it, it felt completely normal, like any other YA teen book. High School, spoiled girl, blah blah blah...but after a few chapters I was pleasantly surprised by the way the author constructed the love triangle, I mean GASP! Tall, muscular jock vs. sleek, dark and sexy neighbor...and then poor Valerie's life began to fall apart at the seams and she didn't understand why.

Her parents stop coddling her, her friends bail, and she's made to get a job! It's

This book wants to be too many things. It wants to be a mystery, romance, coming of age, and adventure book, but only does the coming of age and romance parts ok. It fails at the rest.

Faerie Tales would have benefited from having a proofreader and an editor. A proofreader would have caught the obvious autocorrected words that are actually not what they should have been. For example, console is spelled council every time it is used. And a proofreader would also have caught the persistant mistakes

All teenagers think they have problems in their lives, Val just never imagined the form her problems would take. The characters and situations were so realistic and easily imagined but with the right amount of fantasy to fuel your imagination. This book makes you wonder if it couldn't be telling the truth about the fairies and we just don't know it. I loved it!! I hope to read more of Brandi's work very soon :)

“I furrowed my brows at him. What was so amazing about a stick? I could pick one up outside on the way to the car.

“Let me guess, you’re Harry Potter and this is the school of Hogwarts. If I say Lumos will it light up?”
“Will that be all?” I asked the pimply faced teen who ogled my exposed legs as if in heat. My pen tapped impatiently on the notepad while I waited for him to look up.
Slowly his dull grey eyes roved over my body and a limp smile drew up his thin, crusted lips making him look more weasel than human.
“Yep. That’d be it,” his cheerful, adolescent voice cracked.
“Great,” I mumbled, walking back behind the counter.”
