I absolutely loved How to Ditch Your Fairy. It was so good that I plan on buying my own copy of it eventually (maybe after I finish off another series that I am currently following).
I found this book to be quite witty and just generally astral *hehehe*. I think one of my favorite things about the book would have to have been the slang, it just added a little something to the awesomeness of the whole book. Oddly enough How to Ditch Your Fairy was not the first place that I have heard the use of the word pulchritudinous (beautiful, good-looking, and attractive) I have seen it used in a different book, but for the moment I can't recall which one.
Another great part about the book is all the ways that Charlie tries to get rid of fairy; from avoiding vehicles at all costs to teaming up with and trading fairies with her enemy.
In a way Fiorenza reminds me of both Lana (from the Princess Diaries) and Aphrodite (from the House of Night series) in the fact that their not as bad as they seem when you first meet them.
How to Ditch Your Fairy is definitely a most read for everyone.
I loved this book so much that I am giving it 5 out of 5 pineapples.
