About SMALL PERSONS WITH WINGS: SMALL PERSONS WITH WINGS follows the adventures of 13-year-old Mellie, who discovers that a tribe of Small Persons with Wings (they hate being called fairies) gave her family a magic ring generations ago and now want it back. Booraem’s Ebooks have made “best of the year” lists for Kirkus Reviews, Publishers Weekly, and other publications.
