It is the Winter term in Twink's second year at Glitterwings, which means the all-important Seedling Exams are just round the corner; these are the exams that will indicate the sort of career that all young fairies should follow. Twink is determined to be an animal medic and follow in her parents' footsteps. But as she continues to take the Creature Kindness classes, she realises that she isn't quite as good at the lessons as she thought she was. And that actually she rather enjoys the Flower Power lessons. But what will her parents say if she announces she would rather work with plants than animals? Won't they be terribly disappointed? Twink has some difficult decisions to make. "Glitterwings Academy" is a lovingly created series by acclaimed author Lee Weatherly, writing as Titania Woods.
