Hello Fairy Friends! And, welcome back!

Our 6th Readalong starts on Monday! We’re reading ‘To Best The Boys‘ by Mary Weber, which is our book of the month for our March 3rd Anniversary box. It’s been 3 years already, what?!

This book focuses Rhen, who’s doesn’t want to follow the society expectations for women. She wants to be a scientist! As her town falls prey to a deadly disease, Rhen and her father are in a race against time to find a cure. Especially since her mother is infected and she has little time left. Rhen decides that the best way to save her mother is by entering the Labyrinth, which is a yearly competition for applicants to win a chance at a scholarship to the best University in the land. There’s just one problem, it’s for males only. With her cousin Seleni, Rhen decides to go against the rules and take matters into her own hands, starting with disguising herself as a boy so that she can enter the dangerous Labyrinth and try to win herself this scholarship. OoooOooooOoo!
