Don’t Expect Magic

By: Kathy McCullough



Delaney Collin’s life has been anything but Bippity-Boppity-Boo lately. After her mother’s death from cancer, Delaney is moved from New Jersey to California to live with her famous, but estranged father, Dr. Hank. Besides the trauma of a new home and parent, she starts a new school with her best, and only friend, a thousand miles away. Delaney could sure use a fairy godmother right now. Unfortunately, the fairy godmother – or fg – turns out to be her dad. True story--no fairy tale. And being an fg runs in the family. As Delaney begins to embrace her own magic, and her new West Coast lifestyle, she finds out that granting someone else’s wishes might not be so easy.
