    This book is the craziest book I have ever read in my life. It is about a brownie named Angus Cairns who was sent on a mission to clean up Alexandra Carhart’s bedroom. Her room is such a mess that her mom wants Alexandra to clean it up. But Alex (her nickname) likes it the way it is. One day when Alexandra goes into her room she sees that her room is nice and clean. “Who is cleaning my room when I am not looking”? She thought. Later she finds out that Angus is cleaning her room when she is not looking. Angus is so when Alex found out he was cleaning her room he is so furious that he wishes he never came on this mission. Later on Angus loves cleaning places. One day Angus tells Alex about the Enchanted Realm when he is not supposed to. After a couple of weeks Destiny’s, Alex’s little sister, Ms. Kincaid, her teacher, and Ms. Kincaid’s grandmother disappeared. At the end of the book Angus and Alex are best friends. Also this book is a diary and has supporting letters and journal entries and a bunch of pictures drawn by Angus. Also Angus has a temper problem and he can’t control his temper tantrums. I hope you enjoy this book when you read it :)
