The Lovereading4Kids comment

Follow the delightful and at times naughty fairy, Twink, and her friends as they progress up through Glitterwings Academy, the boarding school of boarding schools for fairies. But beware parents, children who read Glitterwings will soon be asking to go off to boarding school for twink and her friends seem to have such fun. Here at Lovereading4kids we tend to focus most of our attentions on one off titles rather than series. However, when we saw Glitterwings we felt the narrative was so accomplished, stylish and exciting that we shouldn’t ignore it. It’s a series that bridges a gap from early readers to really confident readers, so anyone from 5-9 will enjoy the experience of a series such as this one, rather than just one-off books. At that age most girls still absolutely love all things pink, glittery and if it involves fairies then even better. Glitterwings Academy is just that. To see all the titles just click here.

Synopsis

Glitterwings Academy, Fledge Star by Titania Woods

Twink finds out that she is to be substitute for the Glitterwings Fledge team - a fairy flying sport that is high speed and takes skill and daring to play well. But when Twink is unexpectedly called upon to play she fluffs her chance. Twink is so disappointed. How can she get back on the team? And why is Mariella being so nice to her?
