Review: It’s time for the princess to be told if they will qualify to be joining the Tiara Club, an exclusive club for the best princesses at the school. Their best teacher fairy G is sick and has to leave, the substitute teachers who is a fairy godmother in training comes and wows them with her magic. She is still new and she doesn’t have much but Emily has a way of getting it back for her and bringing back their favourite teacher.
I liked that the girls were all really close and had such a great friendship between them all. I liked that they all helped each other even if they couldn’t get into the Tiara Club. I also really liked how much they cared for and liked their teacher that they just wanted to bring her back. It was really sweet.
The story itself was honestly nothing too exciting, it was a good enough read and was cute, with a cute friendship. It has what you’d expect from a book of this type, plus it was an easy and quick read with a simple storyline.
