Small Persons With Wings by Ellen Booraem

Mellie's life has been ruined since kindergarten where she told her class a fairy was living with her. Throughout the years, she has been mocked, teased, and constantly embarrassed of her slip-up about the fairy. When her grandpa dies, Mellie and her family move so they can clean up and sell her grandpa's inn. There she finds out a secret; one that connects her and her family to the fairies. Soon, everything is out of control with The Little People, and it will take friendship, love, and all of her determination to put it all right again.

Small Persons With Wings is very well written, but almost to the point where the story could occasionally be boring. The plot, settings, and characters all seem real; though, and it's a cute story in general. I would recommend this book to younger readers between fourth and seventh grade. Ellen Booraem certainly knew what she was doing when writing this book, and I hope there is another one soon to come.
