Overview

After becoming the most awkward fairy godmother ever, twelve year old Lacey Unger-Ware thought that her magical duties were done for good. In fact, she's just getting started. When Lacey is invited to attend the Godmother Academy it should be a dream come true. But to Lacey it means the total opposite: she'll have to be separated from her friends and family for a hundred years. Um, no thank you!

But this is an offer Lacey can't refuse. The fairy godmother Katarina knows that Lacey will be cursed forever if she doesn't complete the magical test. Now Lacey must find the true love for one special lady and arrange the perfect wedding before time runs out. With her best friends Sunny and Paige along to help, there's a glimmer of hope. But where's a fairy godmother to save the day when you need one? Oh, wait...

The second book in Barbara Brauner and James Iver Mattson's middle grade series is full of heart and charm, and Abigail Halpin's black-and-white illustrations are irresistible.

The return of fairy godmother Katarina once again casts 12-year-old Lacey's life into disorder. When Katarina arrives with the momentous news that Lacey has been selected to join the Godmother Academy as a trainee, Lacey declines the offer. However, her cat accidentally commits her to a godmother task, and Lacey learns that if she does not fulfill her assigned client's dream, both she and her client will suffer lasting consequences. In less than a week's time, Lacey has to discover the client's true love and host a dream wedding. As in series opener The Glitter Trap (2013), Lacey's spells go comically awry as she struggles to master the intricacies of magic. Returning characters Sunny and Paige have strong supportive roles in this sequel, aiding Lacey in her efforts. With wry humor, Brauner and Mattson alter traditional fairy-tale lore, as when Lacey sets hordes of love-struck frogs in pursuit of her client by mistake. In the middle of the magical chaos, Lacey must also contend with life as a sixth-grader. She copes with her evolving friendship with Scott, inadvertently enters her school's mascot competition and conquers her dread of basketball. Halpin's winsome, lighthearted illustrations enhance the merry exuberance of the tale. Quick-witted and spunky, Lacey beguiles readers in her second adventure. (Fantasy. 9-12)
