With the unfortunate last name Unger-Ware, it’s no surprise that 12-year-old Lacey has been nicknamed Underwear Girl by her popular classmate Paige. When Lacey accidently injures the fairy godmother sent to make Paige’s dreams come true, Lacey takes the fairy’s place and tries to help Paige get the lead in the school musical in this first book in the Oh My Godmother series. At stake are Lacey’s own dreams of an internship at the local zoo, and complications arise when Lacey’s best friend, Sunny, starts feeling abandoned. With all the twists, mishaps, and slapstick of a sitcom, Brauner and Mattson’s lively debut will hook readers from the moment Paige picks up her miniature magic wand. Fairy godmother Katarina is the opposite of her Disney kin, tossing off insults and barbs at every turn, and Lacey is a relatable and fun lead whose growth is organic. Halpin’s energetic b&w illustrations (not all seen by PW) are frosting on this comedic confection of a book. Ages 8–12. Authors’ agent: Joseph Veltre, Gersh Agency. Illustrator’s agent: Emily van Beek, Folio Literary Management. (May)
