It all started when Jojo saw a fairy but said she didn’t. After all, fairies aren’t real—and if they were, they wouldn’t look like that! No, Jojo did not see a small, green, muddy . . . person. Her sisters have no problem believing, though. They beg Jojo to finish the story she started telling long ago, but Jojo doesn’t feel like it, not since the death of their beloved grandma.
Instead, the sisters decide to make fairy gardens, hoping to entice the new kid across the street to come play. Their plan works, but it also catches the attention of the muddy fairies that Jojo invented. Stories can’t actually come to life, though—can they?
Soon the sisters and their new friend, Theo, are on an adventure to save the fairies from a flock
of terrifying birds made out of bones. But they’ll have to tap into a different kind of magic to make everything right again: the magic of sharing stories . . . and letting go.
