Of course, you'll still want to pick up the first book to read more about Morgan and Colin.

The fairies better look out though, because Morgan is determined to have Colin as her date -- and she will find a way to break the curse!

Morgan is back and the only thing that's different is that her hair is longer!

While quite a bit of time has passed since her adventures in Ireland, and she is now an ocean's length away, Morgan still feels like it was just yesterday that she was frolicking with the fairies and biking across Ireland. The worst part is she's away from Colin, the guy she fell for while on the bike trip. Yes, they've exchanged the odd email here and there, but their relationship has pretty much fizzled out.

Now all Morgan has to worry about is the upcoming Junior Prom. While all she really wants is for Colin to be her date, she knows that it's not going to happen. That is until she gets an email from him telling her that he's coming to the States. Of course, Morgan is excited, but the moment he steps off the plane Morgan can tell that something is wrong. Colin seems to be exhausted. Morgan soon finds out that the fairy folk cast a spell on Colin, making him dance with fairies every night. Any hope Morgan had of taking Colin to prom vanishes when she discovers this, as she knows he won't want anything to do with dancing, let alone have the energy.

The fairies better look out though, because Morgan is determined to have Colin as her date -- and she will find a way to break the curse!

When I finished WHY I LET MY HAIR GROW OUT, I really didn't think it could get much better. Well, I stand corrected, because the sequel outdid the first book. I mean the first one was awesome, but this one was even better.

Morgan returns as funny as ever and definitely doesn't disappoint. This book is completely irresistible and unforgettable.

Format: Paperback
The magic and adventure that Morgan experienced the previous summer in the novel Why I Let My Hair Grow Out are nearly forgotten as March drags on, and Morgan helps plan what will be the worst junior prom ever. Everything starts to look sunny again when Colin, her hunk of a tour guide from Ireland writes to say that he's coming to Connecticut.

But when he arrives groggy and bleary eyed, it doesn't take long for Morgan to realize that it's more than jet lag that's making Colin so weary...but the Fair Folk who invade his dreams and want to dance with him from dusk til dawn. They refuse to leave him alone, and it's going to take all of Morgan's brains to figure out how to get him away before he gives out in exhaustion.

How I Found the Perfect Dress is a nicely paced, fun, and magical read that tops its predecessor, Why I let My Hair Grow Out. It's full of sarcastic, witty humor, more hysterical magical beings, and meddling faeries. What makes it memorable are the Fair Folk--they're just as described in those old tales, but rocking a 21st century style. There's a plot twist that's building up suspense around every corner, and Morgan handles it all with flair. Wood has created an absolutely wonderful, sparkling read.

Format: Paperback
Imagine taking a trip halfway around the world, only to find out that you're half-goddess, then be sworn to secrecy. What would happen when you went back to your normal life in your boring American town with your non-magical family and friends? Readers first met Morgan, Connecticut teenager and unlikely half-goddess, in Why I Let My Hair Grow Out, which detailed her trip to Ireland. Morgan's story continues in the sequel, How I Found the Perfect Dress.

As the holidays approach, Morgan is safe at home in Connecticut, missing her Irish crush Colin and keeping her secret about being half-goddess Morganne. She's a little bored by her hum-drum life in suburbia, and she wishes Colin would get in touch with her. Then he does, to say he's coming to her state for a college program, and she can't wait. But when his plan finally lands, Colin's exhausted. He's not jet lagged - he's spellbound! Morgan discovers that when he's asleep, he wanders into a magical realm where he dances with the faeries until the wee hours of the morning. She does everything she can to break the spell - and get him to go to prom with her.

Maryrose Wood's contemporary YA fantasies are fun, quick reads with plenty of comedy and romance. Morgan is more punk-rock than princess, and her conversations with her wide-eyed little sister are classic. Lewis Carroll's Alice would definitely like the scene when Morgan goes through a dressing room mirror. I know I did!

I hope there's another book about Morgan. I'd love to see her get into more magical mischief.

How I found the Perfect Dress wasn't as good as it's predecessor. I know others say that the second one was better than the first, but to me it wasn't that. First-- I had to put the book down several times to try to get into it.And that's a bad thing. I like a book that makes me want to read it on one sitting. Sadly, that wasn't the case. Second--sure there was more fantasy in the sequel but it wasn't as good as the first one.The breaking the spell part was predictable. I knew what was going to happen 1/4 into the book. Third--Morgan was still sarcastic and funny but her voice wasn't the same as it was in the first book. She felt different. Fourth--The plot for me really wasn't that interesting. Sometimes it got boring. Other times I got sleepy.It just wasn't as good as the first book. All these factors kept me from enjoying the book. The writing was still good but there I just didn't enjoy this sequel.
