Book Jacket Summary
Middle school is far from a fairytale for adorkable misfit Lacey Unger-Ware. When Lacey ends up with popular girl Paige Harrington’s smart-mouthed fairy godmother, Katarina, trapped in her hair, life gets more magical—just not in a ‘prince charming’ kind of way.

Katarina’s wings are too damaged to continue her fairy duties, and Lacey must take over as Paige’s fairy godmother. Distracted by her new responsibilities, Lacey’s in danger of losing her best friend, Sunny. Can Lacey get the hang of magic, make Paige’s dreams come true, and survive middle school?

Barbara Brauner and James Iver Mattson's debut novel is full of heart and charm. Get ready for the Oh My Godmother series to cast a spell on tween girls!

My Thoughts
Lacey Unger-Ware is in a fine mess. She has caught a fairy godmother that is meant for another girl and not just any other but Paige Harrington, the most popular girl in school. If Lacey cannot make Paige's dream come true by midnight of the next full moon then her own dream will be broken. Paige wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up but how can she do that when all the animals suddenly hate her! Paige is on a tight schedule because Katarina, the fairy godmother, is injured and Paige must pick up the slack. 
This is a really great book that I hope becomes a series! I really like Lacey and her unfortunate name! Plus Paige doesn't end up such a mean girl after all, she just likes the attention because she is not getting enough from her father. Sunny is good natured and kind but has a stubborn streak, especially when it comes to her hair! Just the kind of book that tweens will eat right up. There is also a drama scene that made me bust out laughing with the improv that the main characters had to do to save the show!
