Overview

The sequel to DON'T EXPECT MAGIC!

Now that Delaney Collins knows she’s a fairy godmother, she’s ready to make magic happen. But first, she has to find her next client. And it’s not as easy as she thought it would be.

Delaney’s spending the summer working at Treasures, a secondhand store at the mall, surrounded by cool vintage boots—and potential clients. But when she finally feels a connection with Jeni, a girl who needs a life-changing, happily-ever-after wish . . . Jeni doesn’t want her help. And to make matters worse, Delaney finds herself competing with another f.g. Glittery, sparkly Ariella is an uber-f.g., granting wishes with a flick of her lemon candy stick, while Delaney can’t seem to make anything happen. Not even a summer romance with her boyfriend, Flynn.

It takes more than waving a chopstick to make big wishes come true. But what good is being an f.g. if you can’t make the boy you like want to be with you as much as you want to be with him?

"A fun paranormal comedy."--Kirkus Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Two teen fairy godmothers with drastically different styles duel it out in this mostly clever follow-up to Don't Expect Magic (2011). Doubt plagues 15-year-old Delaney from the start of this sequel. She has newly come to terms with the wish-granting magic passed along to her by her father, but months have gone by since she granted the wish of her boyfriend, Flynn, and no further wish recipients have materialized. Adding to her woes are a rivalry with Ariella, an f.g. with powers that seem to dwarf her own, and Flynn's inattentiveness due to his summer job. With so many things going wrong, Delaney retreats to her old ways, hiding her feelings and telling no one about her struggles. While readers will be sympathetic to her plight, it's likely some will find her angst--"And then the moment's gone in an instant, cruelly yanked away from me, like always"--a bit self-serving. However, as in the first, Delaney's tendency toward gloom can also be wickedly funny, such as her thought that her dad's relentless attempts to win over the son of his new girlfriend are "[s]ort of like a prisoner-of-war interrogation with a domestic twist." A fun paranormal comedy with an overarching message about being one's true self and the power of honesty, it will be welcomed by fans of the first. (Paranormal comedy. 12 & up)
