Fiona wants to fix people''s problems--but what if she''s the one who needs help? Kelly Jones, author of Unusual Chickens for the Exceptional Poultry Farmer, delivers a funny, take-charge heroine kids will love.

Fiona may have problems, but she''s no damsel in distress. She''d rather be the one wielding the wand in the story: she wants to be the fairy godperson. So when her mom sends her off to stay with relatives in a place called Cold Hope for the summer, Fiona decides it''s time to start training for the role.

But helping people in the real world isn''t as easy as it sounds in fairy tales. Change is messy. What if she''s actually making things worse?

Still, with practice (and some deep breaths), Fiona will discover that sometimes messy is okay. Sometimes things do get worse before they get better. And sometimes trying to help fix other people''s problems can help you work on your own...
KELLY JONES has been a librarian and a bookseller and is a raiser of (much-loved but fairly ordinary) chickens. She is now a novelist and the author of Unusual Chickens for the Exceptional Poultry Farmer; its sequel, Are You Ready to Hatch an Unusual Chicken?; a ghost story called Sauerkraut; and the feminist Regency romp Murder, Magic...
