Description: "Charity is a fairy godmother. She doesn’t wear a poofy dress or go around waving a wand, but she does make sure the deepest desires of the student population at Jack London High School come true. And she knows what they want even better than they do because she can glimpse their perfect futures. But when Charity fulfills a glimpse that gets Vindhya crowned homecoming queen, it ends in disaster. Suddenly, every wish Charity has ever granted is called into question. Has she really been helping people? Where do these glimpses come from, anyway? What if she’s not getting the whole picture? Making this existential crisis way worse is Noah—the adorkable and (in Charity’s opinion) diabolical ex of one of her past clients—who blames her for sabotaging his prom plans and claims her interventions are doing more harm than good. He demands that she stop granting wishes and help him get his girl back. At first, Charity has no choice but to play along. But soon, Noah becomes an unexpected ally in getting to the bottom of the glimpses. Before long, Charity dares to call him her friend...and even starts to wish he were something more. But can the fairy godmother ever get the happily ever after?" -- Provided by Publisher.

She's a poet and a lover of language-- except that now, she can barely understand what's going on around her, let alone find the words to express how she feels in the language she's expected to speak. Then she meets Harrison, the very cute, very American boy in her math class. And then there's her new friend Neo, the Greek boy she's partnered up with in ESL class, who she bonds with over the 80s teen movies they are assigned to watch for class, and Altagracia, her artistic and Instagram-fabulous friend, who thankfully is fluent in Spanish and able to help her settle into American high school. As her father accuses Ana of becoming too American, what does it mean when her feelings for Harrison and Neo start to change?
