The Fairy Godmother Academy #2: Kerka's Bookby Jan Bozarth
The series boasts an amazing Web site that allows girls to enter the world they visit in the books.
For girls who are fans of Harry Potter and have outgrown the Disney Fairies series and the American Girl books, the Fairy Godmother Academy is the perfect series—fantasy books filled with magic and adventure but grounded by contemporary girls and issues.
The series boasts an amazing Web site that allows girls to enter the world they visit in the books. There they can do activities both on- and offline, vote for things they'd like to see in the books, and connect with other Fairy Godmother Academy fans.
Kerka Laine is not one to sit around and let things happen to her. She knows from her adventure with her friend Birdie that she comes from a long line of fairy godmothers and that she's destined to start training as a fairy godmother herself. She just hates waiting for the training to begin! When her dreams take her to Aventurine, the place where girls go to unlock their own special kind of magic, Kerka is more than ready. What she is not prepared for is the quest that the fairies give her: She must find her younger sister's voice before the sun rises on a mountain range called the Three Queens.
Kerka loves a challenge, but how can she find something that is invisible? In this second Fairy Godmother Academy book, Kerka begins the dangerous journey that will determine not only her future as a fairy godmother but also the fate of her sisters.

Meet the Author
Jan Bozarth was raised in an international family in Texas in the sixties, the daughter of a Cuban mother and a Welsh father. She danced in a ballet company at eleven, started a dream journal at thirteen, joined a surf club at sixteen, studied flower essences at eighteen, and went on to study music, art, and poetry in college. As a girl, she dreamed of a life that would weave these different interests together. Her dream came true when she grew up and had a big family and a music and writing career. Jan is now a grandmother and writes stories and songs for young people. She often works with her own grown-up children, who are musicians and artists in Austin, Texas. (Sometimes Jan is even the fairy godmother who encourages them to believe in their dreams!) Jan credits her own mother, Dora, with handing down her wisdom: Dream big and never give up.

Eberyone who likes fairy tales will love this book like I do because I love it
Technically this is Kerka’s second adventure into Aventurine. She first traveled with Birdie in the first book of the fairy godmothers academy. This time we learn about Kerkas’ family which is a long line of fairy godmothers including her mother who has passed on. Her mother was suppose to teach her and her sisters the beginning training of being a fairy godmother. I enjoy this series. I find it very different than most fairy series. There is a lot of detail into each girls speciality. The first book Birdie is a herbologist. Kerka and her sisters study a dance with a special stick called a Kalis. Kerka is a very strong character she is not a afraid to get her hands dirty and cares very much for her sisters. I can’t wait to read the next in the series.
I lovethis series
