Rósmáire Ní Ghrifín is an ordinary young girl, or so she thinks. She has to contend with the usual difficulties: a mean older brother, a cross school teacher and the difficulties of getting onto the school football team. Things don't always go smoothly for her, and her 10th birthday proves no different when everyone except her horrid brother forgets it, her mother goes into hospital and her teacher punishes her. Then, to top it all off, she is visited in the night by a host of magical beings. They have come to tell her that she is not, in fact, a mortal, but is a member of the Tuatha Dé Danann, just like them, and endowed with magical powers. Well, Rósmáire can think of nothing worse! She is not one bit fairy-like and detests pink and all other girly-fairy-type things. Why has she been picked to be a fairy? And what can she do about it?
This exciting and funny novel is the first in the Cailitín series by Caitríona Ní Mhurchú, and is suitable for children aged 8 – 12 years.
