Don't Expect Magic by Kathy McCullough

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. But what happens when a fairy godmother needs a wish of her own?

My Thoughts:

This was a pretty good book.  It had its parts of "I don't believe this at all!", but it wasn't horrible.  The main character Delaney was a normal teenage girl until her mother died.  This part of the book I found a bit unbelievable.  Delaney didn't seem to mind that her mother had just died, she just went on with her life.  

The rest of the book went very quickly from that point. Delaney decided she must be a Fairy Godmother and learned how to be one overnight it seemed.  This part was also unbelievable.  I would have liked a little more info on how she practiced and learned.  Over all this was an average book.  I'd read more books in this series if there are going to be any.
