SummaryAdd a Summary
Mellie Turpin has known fairies as long as she remembered. Heck, she even HAD one until one day in her kindergarten years. Oh, and she also knows that fairies don't like to be called fairies. But the one thing she didn't know about fairies was that a ton of fairies would be following her family nearly all day after her family moves into her passed grandfather's inn. Mellie must find the moonstone ring that the fairies want back(so they can have their true magic back and that their artificial magic wouldn't kill them) AND figure out the mysterious fairy-like "human" that is keeping her from giving the ring back to their rightful owners.
The Parvi Pennati are not fairies. Fair warning: call them that name and expect to experience some serious pain. Mellie Turpin knows about that kind of pain firsthand since she grew up with a small person with wings when she was young. Unfortunately when she told her Kindergarten schoolmates about her friend and failed to produce him she was immediately labeled Fairy Fat thanks in part to her girth and has carried that nickname through the years. So you can see why she’d be thrilled upon hearing that since her grandfather passed away to learn that her parents have inherited his old inn. Looking to spruce it up the family moves into their new home only to find that they have been lured there by a malevolent presence. Stranger still the entire Parvi Pennati clan in all its glory has also decided to take up residence. It comes down to Mellie to crack a couple mysteries and to save the day when all the adults around her human and fairy alike turn out to be useless in the face of catastrophe.
