Shayla Witherwood: A Half-Faerie Tale by Tamra Torero

Shayla Witherwood has never been like other girls. Being a half-faerie will do that to you. But with magical powers like invisibility, shape-shifting, and healing kisses, high school is bound to be anything but boring. Throw in an ancient prophecy that is sure to get someone killed and a few unpredictable enchantments, and you have one of the most anticipated fairy tales of the season.

First line:
"With three hundred Students wandering the halls
of Jasper Jenkins High School, it was easy to be invisible—especially for me."

Shayla just wants to be a normal high school girl but alas! She's been home-schooled her whole life AND she's part fairy.
Shayla is a cute, witty girl. She has to find her way in the social hierarchy of school. She tries different places and friends, through hard times. The head cheerleader doesn't like her, her science teacher is strict with her, the nerds want her to play chess at lunch (which she really enjoys) and the janitor is nice to her. What can a high school girl do? Find real friends and her true self, that's what.
This book has a good mix of fae, romance and humor for a good, clean read. This is a good story with a positive, uplifting beat about high school.

S: No
V: No
L: No

Quick, clean read
