THE LOST SECRET OF FAIRIES (THE CRYSTAL KEEPER CHRONICLES #1) by Tiffany Turner_Review

The Lost Secret of Fairies (The Crystal Keeper Chronicles, #1)The Lost Secret of Fairies by Tiffany Turner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


An engaging book for middle graders, “The Lost Secrets of the Fairies” is the first entry in the Crystal Keepers series by Tiffany Turner. Young Wanda, just commencing the long stretch of summer between 5th and 6th grade, is celebrating her chosen status of loner and reader. A dedicated fantasy aficionado, Wanda is startled, but not really amazed nor distraught, when her life takes a sharp turn into fantasy, and she realizes that animals do communicate, and Faery is real.

Wanda is a very likable and realistically drawn character. No “Goody two-shoes,” she is somewhat of an outcast, ignored or mocked by the popular clique, but she realizes her strengths and tries to circumvent or work around her weaknesses. During the course of the novel she is confronted with, not only the destruction of rampant pollution which is damaging the Faery world, but with good perverted to evil and must make some stringent decisions for herself. The novel encouraged me to continue with the series, even though I’m quite a way past middle-grade level.
