After her mother dies, Delaney is forced to move across the country to live with her father, a quite famous life-coach she barely knows. Little does Delaney know that her father is hiding a big secret: he is a freaking Fairy Godmother (Godfather?)! At first Delaney doesn't believe him, but she soon realizes it is all true and that the F.G. gene may or may not have been passed on to her and then BAM! She gets her first case: Flynn, a classmate from her new school. Using her F.G. magic, she helps Flynn get the girl he is crushing on by granting his wishes in hopes that completing her first case will upgrade her status to a full fledged Fairy Godmother and finally get her wand. But no one said wish-granting would be easy...
I loved Flynn and Delaney! Especially Flynn ;) He was very geeky but that made totally adorable. And he was so sweet, too!
And the whole Fairy Godmother gene thing I thought was very cool. I really liked the idea behind it and how the magic worked in this world.
Don't Expect Magic was not the light, fluffy read I was expecting, but it was still fun and actually kind of silly at times. Overall I really liked it and I'm really looking forward to reading the sequel!
