Diary of a Mad Brownie by Bruce Coville
Angus Cairns is a brownie from Scotland. He is bound to the McGonagall family by a curse laid on his father by the Queen of Shadows. He has to travel to America to attach himself to the youngest female of age in the family.
Angus's job is to tidy up after his family and his new girl Alex Carhart is determined to be as messy as possible. It takes adjustments on both sides to live together in peace. But that's just the beginning. Angus' curse also affects the men living in the house. Alex's father and brother both take up writing poetry - and they are very bad at it.
Only returning to the Queen of Shadows a precious thing that she lost will lift the curse. Can Angus and Alex figure out what it is and how to return it to the Enchanted Realm?
