    Wonderful book that really makes you think!

    Review by Stephanie O: What do you get when you take Crime add some Fairies? True Grime, that¿s what. Pepper Polly Pebble Petunia Power-Puff, yep that¿s her name . . and fighting Grime, well that¿s what she was born to do. By the book type of gal and always uptight. Secretly crushing on her partner, she wouldn¿t know how to flirt with him to save her life . . honestly.
    This book is packed full with imagination.

    True Grime is the task force of fairies, put together to protect us silly little humans. See, we are too young to know what is best for us. In fact, did you know we have wiped ourselves out almost completely about 8 times? Once it was so bad, that we almost put the entire universe in harm¿s way. Also, did you know that 30 mins human time is equal to 5 hrs of fairy time!!!!

    True Grime partners Harley and Pepper have worked well together for a long time. Lou their boss wants them together on this mission. However, an accident with Pepper may have put that option in jeopardy. With Dr. Benny and Echo on the job, hopefully this won¿t be the case.

    This mission to the human realm has Pepper seeing humans in a whole new light. From meeting Malcolm, who seems such a bully . . until she gets a good look at his life and understands why he acts the way he does. To meeting Champagne and getting that tummy turning feeling of jealousy, and finally, meeting Aponi and understanding what it¿s like to be human and to be different and to still be able to walk with your head held high.

    Pepper aka Powder-Puff is a fairy on a mission, and nothing . . . I mean NOTHING is going to stand in her way. Claude Von Beulow will be back in custody and behind the walls of the Menacres Asylum. With the help of her team and new found friends can they see the job to its end?

    I dare you to read this book and:

    Look at a mountain the same.
    View a volcano as ¿just¿ spewing hot lava.
    The size of a tree as ¿small¿.

    Wonderful book that really makes you think.

    Things That Make You Go Hmmm

    I seriously have to talk about this book. Have you ever read a book and thought to yourself, "Wow, the things that go on in this authors mind must be insane?" OR maybe you find yourself thinking, "Do they know something we don't know?" Well, those are just a few thoughts that crossed my mind while reading this book. However, after I finished I think I had even more questions in my head than were there when I began. Like, what is the ocean made up of? Do you think thunderstorms are a product of us pissing off a fairy somewhere? What if a tornado is really just a fairy fart? Or a hurricane is the product a fairy bubble bath? Maybe . . just maybe, a rainbow is something we get to see when the fairy people are happy with us? Well, no matter the questions I have . . one thing is for certain, this book totally rocks! If I'm going to 100% honest, I'll tell ya this. The blurb for this book grabbed my attention. So, I was excited to get started on it. Once I started I found myself wondering if it was the right book for me. That question was wiped away fairly quickly and I couldn't put the book down. (Trust me, there were times I should have put it down . . . school work should come first, I promise you!) Then by the end of the book, I was so happy that I didn't give up on it. Wanna read the blurb? Grime cop and teen fairy Pepper Powder lives for one thing: protecting the human species from magical zealots who seek to eradicate them with Violent Illness of Unusual Resistance and Strength (humans call them "viruses," but their mistake is understandable. The very young often get their words wrong.). When a terrorist leader releases a necrophage bomb, it not only decimates Grime headquarters, it turns Pepper into the magical world's first fairy amputee-but she's not going to let a little thing like a missing leg stop her. To catch her criminal, and prevent him from unleashing a VIURS in one of the human world's biggest shopping centers, West Edmonton Mall, she goes undercover as a human. But once Pepper's theories of humanity collide with the reality of bullies, cliques, and environmental destruction, will she still believe humanity's worth saving? - Goodreads So, now that you have read the blurb, what are you waiting for?!?! I totally promise you, you won't be disappointed.
