Don't Expect Magic, by Kathy McCullough

Recently, my agent gave me an advanced copy of Don't Expect Magic by Kathy McCullough and I just loved it.

I tore through it, hooked by the main character, Delaney Collins, right from the get-go. I was drawn to her tough girl exterior, her creative outlet as a boot designer, and her tragic sense of loss and transition. This book is contemporary with just a twinge of paranormal, just about as much as a slight wiggle of Samantha's nose from Bewitched. It deals with Delaney discovering that her dad is a fairy godfather, that much is true; but the real story here is about a broken girl who has lost her mother and is sent across the country to live with a dad she's barely known. 

Delaney Collins doesn't believe in fairy tales. And why should she? Her mom is dead, her best friend is across the country, and she's stuck in California with "Dr. Hank," her famous life-coach father - a man she barely knows. Happily ever after? Yeah, right.

Then Dr. Hank tells her an outrageous secret: he's a fairy godmother - an f.g. - and he can prove it. And by the way? The f.g. gene is hereditary. Meaning there's a good chance that New Jersey tough girl Delaney is someone's fairy godmother.

Even though she's not the pink and sparkly type, Delaney soon finds herself with a client: Flynn Becker, a boy at her new school who's hopelessly in love with a girl who doesn't know he exists. Flynn's wish is Delaney's command.

With her customized black boots and chopstick wand, Delaney does everything in her power to make Flynn's wish come true. But what happens when a fairy godmother needs a wish of her own?

Look for this book on sale wherever books are sold November 8, 2011. Check Kathy out at her website and you can even keep track of Delaney at her very own website as well:

This book sounds sort of perfect. I've always wondered where the books at the edge of supernatural and contemp were.

Off to Amazon.
