The Magic Mistake is the 2nd book in the Oh My Godmother series. (I have previously reviewed book 1 – The Glitter Trap) In this book we are once again following Lacey Unger-Ware and her friends. After Lacey had to take over being a godmother in the first book, she is now invited to join the Godmother Academy. All she has to do is make someone’s dream come true – before Friday when the full moon hits. If she succeeds she will become a member of the godmother academy for 100 years. If she fails, she will be cursed and everyone will hate her.
Katarina, the godmother training Lacey, tells her that she has to make Gina’s dream wedding come true. Gina is Sunny’s mom, who was supposed to be married at the beginning of the book but her fiancé runs off and gets married to someone else. Gina stays inside eating all of her wedding cake and not wanting to anything. Lacey enlists her friends Sunny and Paige to help her out with the wedding and finds that the basketball coach is Gina’s true love.
When they finally have the wedding ready to happen (thanks to a magic spell or three) Lacey realizes she made a mistake! Sunny’s mom is NOT the Gina that she is supposed to be helping. Will she be able to fix things and make the real Gina’s dream come true? Will she end up at the godmother academy for 100 years and have to leave her family?
Another cute book in this series. Great for middle-school aged girls. A quick and easy read that has a lot of fun things going on with the magic wand meddling on typical school day events.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
After becoming the most awkward fairy godmother ever, twelve year old Lacey Unger-Ware thought that her magical duties were done for good. In fact, she’s just getting started. When Lacey is invited to attend the Godmother Academy it should be a dream come true. But to Lacey it means the total opposite: she’ll have to be separated from her friends and family for a hundred years. Um, no thank you!
But this is an offer Lacey can’t refuse. The fairy godmother Katarina knows that Lacey will be cursed forever if she doesn’t complete the magical test. Now Lacey must find the true love for one special lady and arrange the perfect wedding before time runs out. With her best friends Sunny and Paige along to help, there’s a glimmer of hope. But where’s a fairy godmother to save the day when you need one? Oh, wait…
The second book in Barbara Brauner and James Iver Mattson’s middle grade series is full of heart and charm, and Abigail Halpin’s black-and-white illustrations are irresistible.
