Synopsis:

Ever wanted to grow a five-story tall flower in central park? How about fight a deadly battle under the subway tunnels of Manhattan?

Don't worry. I never wanted to either. But if you're ever being chased by ladies made of mist and you have to save the girl with the sparkly eyes you've never had the guts to say actual words to, there's an app for that.

I found a magic cell phone, opened an app I shouldn't have, burned down the set shop for my high school's theatre, and it was all downhill from there. A drag queen seer who lives under a bridge is my only hope for keeping my mom alive, and I think the cops might be after me for destroying my dad's penthouse.

But it gets better! Now I'm stuck being the sidekick to the guy who got me into this mess in the first place. It'll be a miracle if I survive until Monday.

My rating: ★★★★☆

The title of this book is what initially caught my attention, obviously, but it also sounded really fun! I loved the idea of a magical phone, and someone who knows zero about magic finds it and inadvertently uses it. It made for some pretty funny, magical situations. I really liked the magic usage in this book, and I just love magic in general! And it was an interesting story, too! All this craziness happens because Bryant found a cellphone, and he’s suddenly thrust into a magical world and is being stalked by an evil wizard trying to kill him for “stealing” his phone.

I really liked the characters and their interactions with one another. Our main character is Bryant, and joining him on this crazy adventure are his best friend Devon, and his crush Elizabeth. I loved Bryant! He was really funny!

Old black ladies were my guardian angels in New York. I think the formed a league when I was little. The Keep Bryan Jameson Adams Alive League.
I don’t know why they couldn’t have formed a Get Bryan Jameson Adams a Girlfriend League, or I’d even take a Make Bryan Jameson Adams Mysteriously Cool League.

With inner monologue like this, I knew straight away that I was gonna like this kid! I also really liked Devon. He’s very charming, he knows he’s attractive and knows how to work it to his advantage. But to his credit, he’s not totally arrogant. He is a very good friend to Bryant, and I absolutely loved that about him!

“We’re stopping an evil wizard and getting you the girl, Bryant. ‘Cause that’s the sort of best friend you have.”

They're great friends and I just really loved their relationship.

Overall, I really liked this book! I liked the premise of a magical phone, I loved the characters, and of course, I loved the magic! I hope there is a sequel to this because this book just left me wondering about Bryant and him using magic... that was very intriguing!
