Millenia ago Queen Titania of Faerie and a mortal produced a hybrid offspring. In the present Morgan Rawlinsonis a direct descendent of that long ago child; her DNA is half faerie Faerie although her parents are totally human. They pressure Morgan to choose a college although she has poor grades, a low SAT score, and no community service. She is sent to a paying advisor who insists he can get her into Oxford on a full scholarship. While she prepares to go to England (not Mississippi); her Irish boyfriend Colin asks her to meet him at a resort in Wales. When she arrives, Colin swears he never sent her an email, but she soon learns the Oxford offer and the odd email has to do with Queen Titania lifting the veil between the two realms. She has to be stopped, but Colin believes she lied to him because she omitted to tell him she is a demi goddess. Between saving the world and her relationship, college has fallen to the bottom of Morgan's agenda just after what she should wear to save the world. The third Morgan teen fantasy (see Why I Let My Hair Grow Out and How I Found the Perfect Dress) is a fun fast-paced frolic that young adolescents will especially enjoy the wee bit of magic in the world of Maryrose Wood. The seventeen years old heroine is a down to earth and pragmatic with a touch of romance in her soul as she loves her Colin, but fears he will reject her once he learns of her bloodline. Colin is science so Mojo magic goes against his belief in physics; yet he must adapt if he wants to remain with the woman he loves as she tries to save the world from the actions of her great ancestor many generations removed.

Senior year is an important part of a teens life. Like most teens, Morgan is in a state of confusion when it comes to her future. She's head over heels in love and that's about the only thing Morgan can see at the moment. She's really into this guy named Colin but his current view on magic presents a slight problem. He doesn't believe in it and magic is plays a huge role in Morgan's life. When the time comes and Morgan is forced to reveal her true self, will Colin take her at her word, or is their relationship doomed forever?This was such a fun YA novel. I felt like I traveled back to my high school days when my biggest problem was whether or not my butt looked good in a new pair of jeans. Oh how I miss the good ole days. *sigh*
