How to Ditch Your Fairy takes place in New Avalon, a world where everyone has their own personal fairy. Your fairy will have one particular talent that it will help you out with–maybe something broad like a charm fairy or a sports fairy, or something super specific and odd. Charlie’s best friend Rochelle has a shopping fairy, so whenever they go to the mall, Rochelle somehow always finds something that fits her perfectly that’s been marked down to 90% off. Her enemy Fiorenze has a fairy that makes all the boys at school like her. Charlie, on the other hand, has a parking fairy. She–or whoever is driving with her in the car–can always find a perfect parking spot. Charlie thinks that’s a total waste of a fairy. She’d rather have any other kind of fairy, but especially a sports fairy so she could finally make the basketball team. It turns out that Fiorenze doesn’t like her fairy, either–if your fairy makes every boy like you, it’s hard to get a moment of peace and quiet. Charlie and Fiorenze team up to figure out how to ditch their fairies, but it’s harder than it sounds.
