Living through junior high school does feel a bit like being lost in a forrest -- suddenly your surroundings are confusing and the path in front of you is unknown. Your body is changing, your friends change, your ideas about boys change -- Morgan Yates is a prime example. Morgan does not have a mother to turn to for advice -- but suddenly help appears in the guise of a glittering, if inept, fairy godmother-in-training. Being 13 is also a magical time, and Ms. Meacham does an excellent job of showing both the joys and possibilities, as well as the fears and angst, in Morgans life. Like Shakespeare, she's quite adept as a comic writer and her characters are three-dimensional; unlike Shakespeare, she's writing a novel, not a play; she's writing a modern book for a younger audience, who certainly will thank her for this imaginative novel.

This cute idea surrounding seventh-grader Morgan and her fairy godmother-in-training Gretta starts off on the right note and slowly goes out of key. The plot itself is supposedly a junior high take on Shakespeare's own play by a slighty different title, but there's really no similarities between the two, and those that do exist are very slight. Yes, there's fairies, and yes, there are a few romantic mix-ups. But young readers who have yet to even learn about the play (let alone read it) won't have a clue that these vague similarities even exist.
Poor Morgan thinks she's too much of a wallflower to get her crush, Ben, to notice her. Enter Gretta, a cell phone-toting fairy who is trying to complete a "humanstay" as part of her requirements for Fairy Godmother Training Academy. But Gretta is way too nosy for her own good, and so she's offering her amateur magical services to help Morgan win Ben's heart. Unfortunately, Gretta hasn't mastered her craft yet, so much calamity ensues: rainstorms in the school, out of control sneezing, etc. Of course, there's a school dance involved, which serves as the setting for the book's climax, if you want to call it that. There's some sort of moral lesson buried somewhere in this book, but the characters don't seem to realize it, so why should the reader? Sadly, the story peters out at the end and instead of getting warm fuzzies, you feel cheated. Shakespeare would be very disappointed.

This book was about a girl named Morgan and a fairy named Gretta who casts spells on Morgan so a boy would like her. I think that this book is funny because Grettta always casts the wrong spells on Morgan.
