Verdict: a book about fairies, in their fairy world, with no hint of irony or urban fantasy.
Perfect for the 8-12 year old set, the book tells the story of Kandide, whose perfect childhood is ruined when her wing is injured and she is segregated with the rest of the Imperfect fairies.
Kandide ultimately learns an important lesson about tolerance and judging people (or, in this case, fairies) purely on face value.
The world the book is set is very well constructed and the characters very consistent. This book could also work as a bedtime read for younger children with beautiful, color illustrations that introduce each main character.
