Title: Calla (Pixieland Diaries #2) Author: Christina Bauer Genre: Paranormal, Romance, Young Adult Release Date: 28 July 2020
Big news in Pixieland! The Blue Fairy is sending our fave pixie, Calla, and her crush, Dare, on a mini-quest. Unfortunately it’s an adventure that requires a lot of togetherness. We’re talking tons of touching, people.
Blue believes that since Calla and Dare are just friends, this situation shouldn’t be awkward. It’s totally awkward.
***A 30,000+ word diary written by Calla***
“I absolutely love Christina Bauer’s style, full of action, intense scenes, and characters that will test one’s imaginations to the max!” – Tome Tender
Pixieland Diaries is so adorably cute. In my reading notes, I wrote: imagine if in the old movie Clueless Cher were a Pixie.
That is Calla. She is kind-hearted, if not a bit selfish. But she is just a fifteen–almost sixteen-year-old, five-foot-tall, pink hair, violet-eyed prankster, who isn’t good at being as evil as she is supposed to be. Her heart is a little too troubled by unfairness and iniquity of the old council buggers, determining so much of her life for her when she is so young and wise.
Written in the unique format of diary format entries for chapters, it changes the reader/narrator relationship, and a more intimate exchange occurs as the reader becomes a party to the secrets Calla is penning into her diaries.
