Grade Level: 7-9 Age Level: 12-14 Listening Level: Grades 7-9 If you lived in a world where everyone had a personal fairy, what kind would you want? * A clothes-shopping fairy (The perfect outfit will always be on sale!) * A loose-change fairy (Pretty self-explanatory.) * A never-getting-caught fairy (You can get away with anything. . . .) Unfortunately for Charlie, she’s stuck with a parking fairy ― if she’s in the car, the driver will find the perfect parking spot. Tired of being treated like a personal parking pass, Charlie devises a plan to ditch her fairy for a more useful model. At first, teaming up with her archenemy (who has an all-the-boys-like-you fairy) seems like a good idea. But Charlie soon learns there are consequences for messing with fairies ― and she will have to resort to extraordinary measures to set things right again. “Welcome to your new obsession! Not only will you believe in fairies after reading this book, you will know what kind you have.” ― Maureen Johnson, author of 13 Little Blue Envelopes

Not the End of the World is Kate Atkinson's first collection of short stories. Playful and profound, they explore the world we think we know whilst offering a vision of another world which lurks just beneath the surface of our consciousness, a world where the myths we have banished from our lives are startlingly present and where imagination has the power to transform reality. From Charlene and Trudi, obsessively making lists while bombs explode softly in the streets outside, to gormless Eddie, maniacal cataloguer of fish, and Meredith Zane who may just have discovered the secret to eternal life, each of these stories shows that when the worlds of material existence and imagination collide, anything is possible.
