Book Description

Sixteen-year-old Maggie Winters can’t think of anything more exciting than junior year. There’s her first prom to look forward to, she can drive, and most important Connor Prince has finally noticed her. But unfortunately so has the school snob, Katrina Melville, who goes out of her way to make Maggie’s life a living nightmare. If that’s not enough, Maggie’s grandma has decided to retire, which doesn’t seem like such a big deal. That is until she finds out her grandma is a Fairy Godmother, and not just any Fairy Godmother. The Fairy Godmother, as in Cinderella, pumpkins, and mice. And she has informed Maggie that she’s next in line to become the new Fairy Godmother.

At first Maggie is excited, the whole getting wings, flying (or rather trying not to crash), and a wand that let’s her grant wishes. It’s like being a superhero, without all the action, explosions, and spandex. Then she gets her first assignment, Katrina Melville, her nemesis. And if that doesn’t make her want to poof herself into oblivion, she finds out that part of Katrina’s happily-ever-after is Connor Prince. Life is so unfair. Even worse, she can’t tell her two best friends about any of it and they’re getting sick of her disappearing acts. Then there are the dangerous creatures, called Grimms who will stop at nothing to keep the happy endings from being fulfilled, even if it means destroying the Fairy Godmother responsible. With time running out, Maggie has to make this wish come true or it will ruin the fates of everyone involved, and open the world to darkness beyond imagination. Maggie will soon find out what it truly means to be a Fairy Godmother—and it isn’t all about princes, gowns, and wings, but something much more

More About the Author

I was born and raised in Michigan (just look for the giant mitten on the map--it'll likely throw a snowball at you). I spent most of my time in Michigan, but while in the army got to call KS, SC, MO, and CA home for awhile as well.

As a kid my family moved around a lot. Try spending both your freshman and senior years at new schools (yeah, loads of fun). I could've changed my name to "new girl".

I love writing for teens because those are the years I remember falling in love with most of my favorite books. Some of the authors I couldn't put down were L.J. Smith, Christopher Pike, R.L. Stine, Richie Tankersley Cusick, Joan Lowery Nixon, Lois Duncan, amongst several others.

My husband and I have a large family. There are six kids total! So we have LOTS of fun on vacations (although hours on the road, cooped up in the Expedition is kind of stressful--although we pass the time with MAD LIBS and hoping no one gets carsick).

Some fun facts about me:

My first real crush was on Luke Skywalker (LOL--hey, I was like 8 years old and it came out before I was born).

I'm obsessed with several TV shows/Movies: The Vampire Diaries, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Sean of the Dead, The Sing Off, Ghost Hunters, Destination Truth, True Blood, Being Human, Fact or Fake, Haven and all the cake designing ones! Oh and all the spoof movies!

I still own all the books I bought as a kid/teen.

I have a hankering for chocolate (like all the time, seriously. If my arm was made of it I'd chew it off).

Celebrity crushes: Johnny Depp (woohoo), Taylor Lautner (okay, I know he's kind of young for me), Ian Somerhalder (ooh, he's just right. We're the same age). Wow, this was like a Goldie Locks and the Three Bears moment. Johnny Depp too old, Taylor Lautner too young, Ian Somerhalder--JUST RIGHT.

In my spare time I like to write (obviously), read, sing, hang out with my kids, play with my animals, camp, play soccer, check my email (hehehe), watch football (go LIONS). I also love hanging out with my sister and hubby!

4.0 out of 5 stars Can't Wait for the Sequel! 8 May 2012
By scribblesonthebackofjanuary - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Maggie is hoping her junior year will be the best year yet, but her hopes are dashed on the very first day when the school mean girl targets her as the victim of displaced anger.

Add to that the family secret she discovers at her grandmother's retirement party, leaving Maggie with no choice but to take over for her grandmother as the newest...fairy godmother-wings, wand, and all-and her prime directive is to make sure all her assignments get their "happy ever after".

Easier said than done.

Her first mission turns out to be none other than her nemesis, mean girl Katrina Melville. But naturally, the indignation doesn't stop there. Kat's HEA includes the one guy Maggie has been crushing on since puberty hit, school hottie Connor Prince.

To top it all off, her new responsibilities require to disappear at a moment's notice (literally) to answer every beck and call of the assigned prima donna. And Maggie's friends don't take very kindly to being ditched in the middle of bonding time. So much for junior year being the best yet.

This was exceptionally well written. The story was engaging from the very beginning and it had everything you could want: romance, action, suspense, love triangles, evil stepmother, monsters... And of course, it sets up for a continuing story at the end. I did think it was a little strange that while her "knight"/body guard received ongoing training for his job, Maggie herself received none. Of course, that just added to the humor when her spells kept going wrong, and to the suspense when she ran into the evil Grimms-so not necessarily a bad thing.

The dialogue between the characters is so well-timed and well-written it gives a great sense of the characters and the age group. The sibling rivalry and the anger towards the father (I hated that guy) for the way he was treating Maggie and her brother were both funny and realistic. Loved the character interaction.

I laughed out loud throughout this whole book. So many funny lines and lots of physical comedy. Great for young adult and adult readers alike. It's a clean read, but there are some older themes, so I wouldn't recommend for younger than high school age.

5.0 out of 5 stars When Fairytales Come True.... 21 Mar. 2012
By Multi Genre Reader - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition can sometimes be a nightmare! For Maggie, life turns upside down when she realizes two things: fairytales are real and she's got a lot to do with them. This is a great story that mixes fantasy with reality in a very magical way. The characters are believable, the situations hilarious, and the end result charming! It's got all the right ingredients for a Happily Ever After with a twist! Purdy's writing is so refreshing and humorous it actually makes you WANT to go back to high school. It will keep you turning the pages and burning the midnight oil. Don't miss this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, A REAL Fairy Godmother 1 Mar. 2015
By Erik Nelson - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm sure that we all wonder how much stress someone is under who has a physically or mentally demanding job. And I'm sure we wonder if God himself, a supreme being sometimes has moments of stress. This story answers the question about how much stress a fairy godmother has or a rookie fairy godmother. Maggie Winters is thrilled about becoming a junior in high school because she can now fulfill her dreams of driving and going to the prom with a boy that she's always had her eye on. In the midst of her junior year, her grandmother who is a fairy godmother wants to retire from her profession and she wants to pass the torch to Maggie. At first she's excited about having supernatural powers and plans to use them to her advantage until her grandmother reminds her that she will have powers to help others find happiness and love. What makes matters worse for her is that her first client is her arch enemy and she has to pair her up with the boy that she wanted to take to the prom. If she lets her feelings get in the way of her duties, this could bring about the end of the aide of fairy godmothers. The author Rebekah L. Purdy did a wonderful job at creating not a farce about fairy godmothers but a real story. She very easily could have made this a farce about the typical Cinderella like stories and turned events around. Instead, she created a serious story with some humor, innocent/non-innocent fun and a little suspense. Basically, if you want to know what a fairy godmother goes through, check this one out. I mean, you have to realize something; a fairy godmother's job is to help people find love but do they have love themselves?

I was hooked on this book within 3 pages. I seriously could not put it down (finished it in a day and a half)! This book was very well written and the concept of the story was like nothing I had ever read before. The author has a remarkable book here and I would recommend that anyone into YA books check this one out! Rebekah Purdy left me wanting to know more about the characters and I am highly anticipating a sequel.....FINGERS CROSSED!
