A banshee is an Irish ancestral spirit who wails when a member of her family is about to die. My banshee shows up in South Boston and tells an Irish-American kid that a member of his family is about to die but she doesn’t know who or when or how. It has gotten starred reviews from Publishers Weekly, Kirkus Reviews and School Library Journal. Disclosure and Photo Credits: the author sent me the ARC to review.

Seeking to escape her “runaway imagination,” Mellie started collecting facts about science and art, but the teasing continued through seventh grade.

When her family moves into a dilapidated old house in a new town, Mellie hopes for a fresh start.

Ellen built a flimsy version of Durindana’s fairy house on Bear Island (her photo at right.) Small Persons with Wings (don’t call them fairies) is as much about real world bullying as about magic.

Poor Mellie has been called “Fairy Fat” ever since she failed to bring her winged little friend to kindergarten for show-and-tell.

After elementary school, all the fairy books and dolls had been passed onto my niece. Barrie Summy, host of our book review club, asked me if I wanted to review a new fairy book.

Next year these big girls would be in high school and probably too old to trick-or-treat. The author, Ellen Booraem, is one of our reviewers and lives a couple hours up the coast from me in Maine.

Then she discovers a drunk fairy in the crystal chandelier and thinks she’s going crazy. Although Small Persons with Wings is labeled ages ten and up, I think it would be better suited to ages ten and under.
