A feisty, fame-seeking fairy helps a teenaged model from Los Angeles deal with her annoying mother, absent father, and a past incident of sexual abuse

Sparkling and magical, dark and twisted, hopeful and beautiful. Block doesn't disappoint and keeps in theme with the dramatic and lovely tones of her work, though this one is darker than most. Be warned: this story deals with topics of pedophilia and trauma and child abuse. Maybe not a good choice for survivors. However, the end is extremely satisfying and may be cathartic. One of my favorites from Block - and I love all her work - this is an unflinching look at the modeling and pageant industry, struggles with mental health, broken families and what we put our children through, all brought together by magic and pure strength of spirit.

Block's story telling is evocatively seductive while touching the sad truths that lie within too many hearts... I read this book as a teenager and parts of it stuck with me. After 15 years, I remembered the basics of the story, but not the whole book or why I was thinking about a random book I had read in 2 hours sitting in a bookstore 15 years ago. So I down loaded the eBook and decided to read some of Block's works again. Best decision I made all month! I love how despite the age of the book, it is hardly noticeable it was written in 98 even though it is written to a modern time. This book is one that I will definitely read again and again through out my life.

This book is an interesting story of a young girl whose mother lives vicariously through her by forcing her into the modeling and acting scene. She goes through a turmoil that her mother also experienced but brushed aside leaving our young heroine almost alone with her pain. She makes friends with a fairy who attempts to help her through her problems and stand up for herself.

The story is written well and in the style expected from our beloved author, however I feel some parts of it could have been fleshed out more. I feel that certain jumps in time were a little too abrupt and certain changes in pace left me a tad confused at times.

Other than that, the story is very inspiring and can leave you with a sense of hope for your own future.

This book was sweet and entertaining... but by far not her best novel. I'd recommend Violet & Claire (a story about 2 best friends), Nymph (her book of adult erotica short stories) or Girl Goddess #9 (a young adult book of short stories.)

First of all, this book may pose some trigger issues for some people. Please be aware that there are some themes that are not explained thoroughly, but still might cause some emotional distress.

That out of the way, I found it interesting that this book used the fairy as a way of helping certain kids cope with things that were too much for them. An overly controlling mother, or a distant father, and of course, the themes mentioned above. Mab helps the humans she connects with to get brave and stand up for themselves and even to move on with their lives.

The only criticism I have, is that it read rather choppy. I had trouble sometimes figuring out what had just happened because it skipped from one character to a memory (I think) of another person with no warning.
I Was a Teenage Fairy means a lot to me. I'll never forget when I first discovered it at the library. I must have been somewhere between grades five and eight, but I'm not really sure. I grabbed it from the "young adult" section in the children's room. I remember feeling like I read a scandalous, hidden treasure. The content was a bit too racy for me to even understand at the time, and I think that's what makes this book mean even more to me today.

I eventually purchased the book. I'm not sure how many times I've read it, but a few days ago I decided that it didn't matter how much schoolwork I had, I just had to read a book for fun. When I saw I Was a Teenage Fairy on my shelf, I knew it would comfort me. And that it did. No, this is not a literary masterpiece, but it does deal with real life issues. A mother who pushes her daughter to model to fulfill her own flopped career. Parents that don't make it. Child molestation. And none of these mentions are enough to be marked as spoilers.

This story is magical. It reminds me of growing up, and each time I read it I understand it more. I highly recommend this book. It's a short read, and you can finish it in a few hours if you just sit down and read. I know that for a while, I'll forget this book. But I'm sure I'll read it again one day, and it will be another amazing experience.
