YOUNG ADULT FICTION–Contemporary, Romance, Fantasy
Perfect for fans of Geekerella and Jenn Bennett, this charming, sparkly rom-com follows a wish-granting teen forced to question if she’s really doing good—and if she has the power to make her own dreams come true.
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?
Can I just say, isn’t this book too cute?! I mean, not only is the cover beyond adorable, but so is the plot! And it’s just one of those reads that you pick up and have fun reading. And it truly is unique. Which I am all about nowadays. I love that this is a fairy tale but in the sense that it’s focused on a fairy godmother because it gives me some Ella Enchanted (which will ALWAYS be one of my favorite books/movies) vibes in a round about way.
I don’t know what else to call this book other than sweet. Not only the plot, but the characters are just the perfect combination of spunky, dorky, and imperfect in all the growing up ways. And the romance is so perfect and it was just so delightful to watch (read?) that blossom. And the cherry on top is that this book is funny! It has a quick wit throughout that will just keep making you giggle as you read.
Ok, is my review a little bit of a rambling mess? Yes. But I think you get the picture. But in case you don’t let me just try and summarize it. Glimpsed is on of those perfectly magical books that will take you on a truly enjoyable journey. It’s beyond unique and perfectly written for young adult readers and fans of the genre.
About the Author
G.F. Miller absolutely insists on a happy ending. Everything else is negotiable. Her wish is to go everywhere—and when a plane ticket isn’t available, books fill the gaps. 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.
