Gr 4-6–When Lacey Unger-Ware gets wet glitter glue stuck in her hair, she never expects it to create a trap. While making a delivery for her father's restaurant, however, she inadvertently captures her nemesis's fairy godmother. The fairy godmother gets injured and can't make Paige's dream of becoming the star of her middle school's musical come true. Fairy rules say that if someone prevents another's dream from becoming a reality, the guilty party will never again have her own dreams come true. That means if Paige doesn't get the coveted role, Lacey won't become the zoo intern for the summer. To make matters worse, Paige can't sing a note to save her life. Can Lacey find a way to make everything right? The characters are well developed, likable, and entertaining, and the plot is involving. The sporadic illustrations are playful and help bring the story to life.–Kira Moody, Whitmore Public Library, Salt Lake City, UTα(c) Copyright 2013.

When your name is Lacey Unger-Ware, how could your life not be full of hilarious escapades? In this good-natured first volume of the Oh My Godmother series, complemented by Halpin’s expressive line drawings, the 12-year-old Lacey faces a challenge when new girl Paige Harrington becomes “Queen of the Sixth Grade.” In a disastrous glitter mishap, Paige’s prickly fairy godmother, Katarina, becomes entangled in Lacey’s hair. While Katarina recuperates, Lacey must become Paige’s fairy godmother or else her own dream of becoming a zoo intern will never come true. First on the spell agenda: make Paige the star of the school play (a musical production of Cinderella, of course). Lacey has her work cut out for her, however, when auditions reveal that Paige can’t carry a tune. Further disastrous results ensure plenty of lighthearted humor. Amid her wand waving, Lacey discovers the real reason Paige needs a fairy godmother, a Prince Charming of her own, and perhaps a new BFF. This modern spin on a popular fairy tale will leave tweens LOLing. Grades 4-6. --Angela Leeper

The real magic of the novel comes from Lacey, the story's plucky protagonist. Her first-person narration is laugh-out-loud funny as she leads the reader through her magical misadventures, from darting through a pigeon poop storm to zooming around town on an enchanted moped. Funny and full of page-turning twists, The Glitter Trap is a wish come true for any reader.
OMG: “The Glitter trap “is spelltastic! This is the perfect book for any tween girl.
Lacey manages to get Paige’s fairy godmother trapped in her unruly hair because of a mishap with glitter glue. Due to this unfortunate accident Katarina (fairy godmother supreme) is injured and is not able to execute her duties. Unfortunately for Lacey if Katarina isn’t able to accomplish Paige’s dream before the end of the full moon (in two weeks time) then none of Lacey’s dreams will come true either. Wielding a tiny wand the size of a tooth pick Lacey accepts the challenge and hilarity ensues.
This book is an amazing parody of “Cinderella”. Ingeniously all the characters show up in one form or another and the entire ensemble is utterly loveable.
“The Glitter Trap” immediately captures your attention and funny bone with a protagonist called Lacey Unger-Ware, who has to endure the nickname underwear girl. Only to be followed up with Katarina whose snarky comments coupled with her near life threatening mishaps will have you laughing-out-loud. Reminder: glitter glue is not your friend and never leave a cat in the room with a fairy in the mist.
As if this book wasn’t good enough there are also a few well placed Illustrations incorporated which add to the visualization. Happily it seems as if this will be the first book in the “Oh My Godmother” series.
