Genie in Charge: Tweenie Genie

Genie in Charge (Tweenie Genie) Genie in Charge (Tweenie Genie) by Meredith Badger (Hardie Grant Egmont)
PB RRP $12.95
ISBN 978-192184883-4

I have to admit I love this series. It is a well written, easy to read series that is positive and set in the world of young genies that is bound to capture young hearts. Throughout the series we follow Poppy, a genie in training at Genie High School. The series delivers a host of personable characters, both boys and girls, as they confront the problems and excitement of being a genie.

Genie in Charge is the third book in the series. Polly and all of her friends are in their final year of Genie High School. This is the year that all genies get to make their own wish rather than granting wishes to others.

Their final task before graduation is to mentor a second year genie. If they succeed they will be granted their wish for the job of their dreams. If they fail their wish may be distorted.

Poppy is assigned a very unusual second stage genie, she doesn’t wear her uniform correctly, she doesn’t like fun parks and she doesn’t like to fly magic carpets. At first Poppy believes that they have nothing in common and there is no way that she can mentor, her. Her wish and her future are at risk as the two of them argue, fall out and then find a way to understand and help each other.

For a fun, easy to read story I definitely recommend Tweenie Genie.
