"Welcome to New Avalon, where everyone has a personal fairy. Though invisible to the naked eye, a personal fairy, like a specialized good luck charm, is vital to success. But for 14-year-old Charlie, having a Parking Fairy is worse than having nothing at all - especially when the school bully carts her around like his own personal parking pass. Enter: The Plan. At first, teaming up with arch-enemy Fiorenza (who has an All-The-Boys-Like-You Fairy) seems like a great idea. But when Charlie unexpectedly gets her heart's desire, it isn't at all what she thought it would be like, and she'll have resort to extraordinary measures to ditch her fairy."--Publisher details.

I really enjoyed this book however one downside is that there is made-up words that you have to look up in the glossary at the back but apart from that it is wonderful!
