Most big cities have their problems, but Seattle was having more than its share. When a social worker makes a wish one day, a fairy godmother shows up to grant it.....and all sorts of weird things start happening! Lots of links to fairy tales, good fun.
However, the subplot of child molestation will be disturbing to some readers: beware!

I hate when a writer writes herself into a corner and then pretends it didn't happen. As the climax heats up, the heroine has locked herself in a storeroom on a ferry. The angry villain is outside the door. She has no where to go. So what happens? He walks away, giving her (and the author) an easy out. I expect better from the authors I read, so this is my first and last book by this author.

This twisted, modern fairy tale is a lot of fun, like all the ones in the series. Elizabeth Ann Scarborough's writing shines with intelligence, compassion, and some hysterical scenes! A great read!
