Charity is a fairy godmother. She doesn’t wear a poofy dress or go around waving a wand, but she does make sure the deepest desires of the student population at Jack London High School come true. And she knows what they want even better than they do because she can glimpse their perfect futures.
But when Charity fulfills a glimpse that gets Vibha crowned homecoming queen, it ends in disaster. Suddenly, every wish Charity has ever granted is called into question. Has she really been helping people? Where do these glimpses come from, anyway? What if she’s not getting the whole picture?
Making this existential crisis way worse is Noah—the adorkable and (in Charity’s opinion) diabolical ex of one of her past clients—who blames her for sabotaging his prom plans and claims her interventions are doing more harm than good. He demands that she stop granting wishes and help him get his girl back. At first, Charity has no choice but to play along. But soon, Noah becomes an unexpected ally in getting to the bottom of the glimpses. Before long, Charity dares to call him her friend…and even starts to wish he were something more. But can the fairy godmother ever get the happily ever after?

I’m not crying. You’re crying. But seriously, this was probably the best book I’ve read all month and one of the best of the year. It was witty, nerdy, and oh so romantic. I already want to read it again!
Right from the beginning, I was laughing so hard. This book was hilarious! I especially laughed at Noah and Charity’s relationship. Their banter was pure gold. Plus, they were both so sarcastic that it made things a lot of fun.
Speaking of their relationship, it was seriously the best. It was a beautifully curated slow burn that had me screaming at them and crying at the same time. Every time they argued or laughed together or schemed or anything, I was here for it. These two characters were just so well developed and worked so great together. I just really love them!
Also, there were sooooo many cute Noah moments. I wanted to squeal every time he did something dorky or awkward. He was just so cute when he was embarrassed or called out on being a little nerdy. I loved it and definitely swooned over him multiple times.
And I loved seeing the change in Charity. She goes through a lot of tough things throughout the book that cause her to change and shift more into the person she’s meant to be. As well, she learns more about her fairy godmother powers (with the help of our lovely Noah) that help her to understand her purpose and how she’s meant to help people.
Overall, THIS IS A MUST READ!! I repeat, read this book before all else! I’ll be recommending this hilarious, well-written, and romantic book to everyone I know.

About the Author
G.F. Miller can write 80,000-word novels, but ask her to sit down and write 250 true and meaningful words about herself and she is likely to have an existential crisis. Who am I, really? She ponders. What do I want to be known for? Does anyone even read the back flap or visit author websites?
But eventually she will pull herself together and tell you that…She married her college sweetheart and is mom to three littles who routinely make her heart burst and her head explode (it’s a messy business, love). There are puppies big and small residing at her house (you’ll be seeing a lot of them if you follow her on Instagram). She’s been to a dozen countries, but not nearly as many as she would like. She loves learning all the things. She cries at all the wrong times. She makes faces at herself in the mirror. She believes in the Oxford comma. And she’s always here for a dance party.
While the stories she has brewing in her soul vary wildly from one another, there are three things they will always have in common: love, snappy dialogue, and happy endings.
