Bertie isn't a fairy, but she lives in a world full of them. Bertie isn't an actor, but she lives in a theater. Bertie is different than everyone else, but yet she has lived contentedly for years in the theater (if not always causing some sort of trouble...), that is, until now. Her whole world is about to come apart because of a single book that is holding the whole theater together, however, the book becomes unbound because of one boy, Ariel, who longs to be free of the theater and feels that the other faeries should as well. Now, it is Bertie's mission to bring the theater back together and save the faerie community that she has grown to love. The question is, will she be able to do it in time?

Lisa Mantchev has truly put together a magnificent debut novel. It is beautifully written and the characters are so delightful to read about! The faeries are portrayed as quirky, naughty, fun, but yet intelligent. Plus, they looooooove sweets! The plot line and characters are very well developed and it is just a very interesting and unique story! I for sure suggest you to go out and buy a copy of this book! Congrat's Lisa on an amazing debut novel!
