"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.

Barbara Brauner grew up in a house that had so many books, her father had to brace the floors. After she moved to Los Angeles to work in the movie business, she met James, who’s been her writing partner ever since. Barbara lives with her crazy attack-cat, Jeeves.

Before he started writing with Barbara, James Iver Mattson worked in motion picture special effects, which, just like the Oh My Godmother series, often involved a lot of sparkles. James’ cat Fred is Jeeves’ sweeter-natured brother.

What we thought:  Seven-year-old A is a voracious reader and jumped at the chance to review this cute kid's book!  She instantly fell in love with the characters and it was really hard to get her to put the book down, which I'm pretty sure is a good sign:)  She also absolutely loved the illustrations!  "OMG:  The Magic Mistake" is really well-written and entertaining for the 8-12 age group (or a little younger if you have an advanced reader)  This sweet, funny book is both kid and mom-approved!  ABCD Diaries gives "OMG: The Magic Mistake" an A+!
