Fairy Potter - A Boy Discovers His Gay Heritage by Luhra Tivis
Review by Iris Carden
This book was the first contemporary fiction book I bought on Kindle. I bought it because I had met the author on Twitter.
I need to confess up front that I'm not especially interested in parody. However, this is well written, and it's fun.
Paralleling the story of Harry Potter, as you would expect, Fairy Potter has been left with his very straight Uncle and Aunt after the mysterious death of his parents while he was a baby. His parents, who had married despite their objection to marriage, had actually arranged for his future.
Fairy is transported to a remarkable school which has lessons tailored for gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, and trans-gendered children. Drugs are a regular part of life in the school. Where Harry Potter and friends took on a troll shortly after arriving at school, Fairy Potter and friends take on a Narc.
It's fun to read to find out what Luhra's done with each of the Harry Potter characters and situations. Like most parodies, the book relies very heavily on the reader being familiar with the original, so if you haven't read Harry Potter for a while, it might be worth a brief skim through first.
