Witty, funny, and incredibly sweet. Where's the sequel?

Apr 26, 2011

Lily is a very "relateable" tween character. Lily and her mom have moved around a lot so Lily doesn't have many friends and really doesn't feel like she fits in. She goes to gymnastics class basically because her mom told her to take it. She has one real friend, but that friend has another "best" friend, which leaves Lily alone the majority of the time anyway. While sometimes I find characters like this a tad "whiny," I didn't ever feel that way about Lily. She didn't whine and complain about not having friends; she just seemed kind of sad and got really excited about the one friend she did have.

The story is well-paced, although maybe a tad on the slower side for readers looking for a fast-paced read. It starts off a tad slow with Lily's descriptions of gymnastics class and plans for her 13th birthday party. Things starts to pick up a tad when the leprechauns come and kidnap her. I thought Lily's reactions to the leprechauns were pretty well-written. She doesn't instantly accept their story and even as they are entering the Green meadow, she is trying to concoct an escape plan. I appreciated that she didn't instantly accept her magical heritage. She does eventually accept and even embrace her "destiny." The plot twists enough to keep you engaged as Lily battles through her three keeper tests, despite setbacks and manipulative leprechauns.
