Fairy Bad Day By Amanda Ashby

Emma goes too Burtonwood Academy, a school for people gifted with the sight (ability to see demons, goblins, dragons, etc.)  Emma's mom was an amazing dragon hunter and Emma has sought after that position  since her mother's death five years ago.  When the assignments are made at the beginning of her sophomore year she finds that she is to be a .....  fairy slayer??  Is there such a thing? 

She spends the next few weeks hating Curtis, the boy that is assigned to be the dragon slayer.  All that does is gets her into trouble with the principle at school and she manages to become the laughing stock of the school when she is caught in an explosion at the mall while hunting fairies.  To make matters worse she is now paired up with Curtis on an assignment and they now have to teach each other about their slaying abilities.

Fairies are hard to deal with, not that they are evil but those little flying monsters make fun of her clothes, throw candy at her and just make her life miserable, plus there is no known way to kill them. 
Trouble finds her on campus but she is the only one  that can see it.  No one believes that this creature exists and it is up to her to save the world.

I loved this book.  The fairies were adorable and so funny.  I liked all of her friends, Curtis was great as a friend/love interest/slayer. Loni is her best friend and is a whiz with technology.  Then there was Tyler who loves to gamble and has a five-legged cockroach as a pet. The only thing I wish was different is the ages of Emma and her friends, they were only fifteen years old.  It would have been nice if they were 17-18 years old.
