Your Review: 
Mixed feelings about this book. I really liked the way magic worked, and the depiction of fairies and ghosts. I love the idea of an outsider bookworm finding her people. I like the diary format, and that it was more about dailiness than a big plot arc. But, I found the main character annoying, frankly. The outsider bookworm I was as a kid really doesn't relate to her. And I find it so tiresome that she's super smart in everything except math. I know it's a pet peeve of mine, but it really is an obnoxious stereotype.
