*the true story of my fairy godparent, who almost killed me, and certainly never made me a princess

Jennifer acquires a fairy godparent (who prefers to be called a fairy godmofo, for good reason as it turns out), and makes three wishes. Unfortunately, as soon as Jennifer's wishes come true, he springs the catch on her: she has to kiss some other girl's boyfriend at the school dance or she will DIE.

I really liked this book a lot. My only big problem was the fact that Jennifer is supposed to be a Shakespeare nut, but she doesn't know that "Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon 'em," is a dick joke.

This makes this excerpt fucking hilarious:

And sometimes even working for it isn't enough. You really do have to have it thrust upon you to get you started.

Anyway, are you so into Shakespeare you've been going to "Shakespeare Club" for six or seven years?
