Jul 11, 2008 rated it it was ok
Shelves: young-adult
Just like the rating says, it was just ok. Far more for young teenage girls (like sixth and seventh grade). Morgan, who thinks she is just average and boring makes a wish and is surprised when a modern fairy comes to help her out--although the fairy is still in training and isn't that great. ...more

Cute, BUT... Didn't have the same charm as the sequel, unfortunately. I still liked it enough to finish it, but I wasn't giggling while reading it, like I had been with A Fairy's Guide to Understanding Humans. (If I had read this one first, I wouldn't have ever read the sequel. It wasn't that good.)

I felt that the characters were better developed in Fairy's Guide, and I didn't feel like I got a lot of background in this book. Most of the characters you meet in Mid-Semester don't exist in the nex

I read this book in 5th grade and we had to do a commercial instead of a book report. So I was flipping through my Elementary School stuff and I found the commercial and remembered the book. I don't really remember anything about it, though. ...more

This book had a really funny/interesting premise, but it just didn't follow through in the novel itself. I found myself overwhelmingly bored when reading this and only finished because it was so short and I thought it might get better. The characters were underdeveloped and I didn't care for their misfortunes or antics. All in all, a rather dull book that should be avoided.

*Taken from my book reviews blog:
A cute, slightly fluffy read. The main character is a 7th grade girl, but I would recommend this book to 9- to 11-year-old girls.
