Description

From the author of beloved novels Ms. Bixby's Last Day and Posted comes a hilarious, heartfelt, and unforgettable novel about a fairy-in-training.

Everyone who wishes upon a star, or a candle, or a penny thrown into a fountain knows that you're not allowed to tell anyone what you've wished for. But even so, there is someone out there who hears it. 

In a magical land called the Haven lives a young fairy named Ophelia Delphinium Fidgets. Ophela is no ordinary fairy—she is a Granter: one of the select fairies whose job it is to venture out into the world and grant the wishes of unsuspecting humans every day.

It's the work of the Granters that generates the magic that allows the fairies to do what they do, and to keep the Haven hidden and safe. But with worldwide magic levels at an all-time low, this is not as easy as it sounds. On a typical day, only a small fraction of the millions of potential wishes gets granted.

Today, however, is anything but typical. Because today, Ophelia is going to get her very first wish-granting assignment.

And she's about to discover that figuring out how to truly give someone what they want takes much more than a handful of fairy dust.

    What is a wish and are they all valued the same? Ophelia Delphinium Fidgets is a Granter...that is a fairy who grants wishes. She has always prided herself on being the best and following every rule. But what happens to her on her first mission will change the way she moves through the rest of her life.
    Written for young readers, this story is fun and exciting but also raises questions surrounding some of life's hardest truths.
    I would say it is a worthy addition to any juvenile library collection, be it school or public.
    Thanks to the publisher and edelweiss for this ARC.

    Description:From John David Anderson, author of the widely acclaimed and beloved novels Ms. Bixby’s Last Day and Posted, comes Granted, a hilarious, heartfelt, and unforgettable novel about a fairy-in-training and her first wish-granting assignment.Everyone who wishes upon a star, or a candle, or a penny thrown into a fountain knows that you’re not allowed to tell anyone what you’ve wished for. But even so, rest assured: There is someone out there who hears it.Ophelia Delphinium Fidgets is no ordinary fairy—she is a Granter: one of the select few whose job it is to venture beyond the boundaries of the Haven and grant the wishes of unsuspecting humans every day. It’s the work of the Granters that generates the magic that allows the fairies to do what they do and to keep the Haven hidden and safe. But with worldwide magic levels at an all-time low, this is not as easy as it sounds. On a typical day, only a small fraction of the millions of wishes made get granted. And even granting those promised few means navigating a human world fraught with danger.Today, however, is anything but typical. Because today Ophelia is going out on her first assignment. And she’s about to discover that getting what you truly want takes much more than a handful of fairy dust.MY BOOK REVIEW:My thanks to Harper Collins Children for this ARC to read and provide my honest review.What a ride! I absolutely loved this middle-Grade book by Anderson.  If you love books about fairies, wish granting, dreams and magic, this book is for you. I couldn’t put this book down. It read smoothly transitioning from one plot twist to another with ease. What I loved the most about this book is the author’s voice. John David Anderson’s ability to weave a story is well… magical. The characters leap off the pages and the magical journey that the Protagonist faces  is quite the adventure!This book wraps the meaning of dreams, wishes, family, magic and especially fairies around your heart and it is sure to leave you smiling and wanting more when you turn that last page.The plot flows well. The Protagonist’s determination to fulfill her “assignment” sways from the path to success when one plot twist after another keeps her just out of reach of achieving her goals.  The pace is steady and exciting and the characters are charming and relatable.I love the cover. It’s true meaning will make sense once you’ve read the book.

    I can't even tell you how sweet this story is. If you like to curl up each night with a child and read them a bit of a continuing story than this is for you. All I could think about is snuggling up each night and reading this. Any one of any age will enjoy it. ?
