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?
Praise for Don't Expect Magic
A supernaturally touched rom-com, this is a bright, whimsical romp featuring a suitably sassy heroine with a killer pair of black leather boots . . . excellent comfort reading. The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Brilliantly timed moments of situational comedy . . . plenty to like in this debut. Kirkus Reviews

An enjoyable read with sprinklings of magic.
