    One thought on “The Glitter Trap”

    1. EArc acquired via netGalleyThere’s a point in every reader’s life when one can swear they’ve read it all: where although there is still great passion for reading, one ceases to be surprised or truly impressed by stories or plot devices. Like eating sugarfree ice-cream without sprinkles, for instance: it’s good but not as good. You like it well enough but you know deep down that there is something missing, that it could be better? I thought I’d reached that point. I thought that it woul [...]

    2. OMG: The Glitter Trap is a fun fast pace read with snappy dialog and characters that I think most tween girls will connect with, especially Lacey Unger-Ware. How could you not want to follow the story of a character with that name? Of course there’s way more to Lacey’s story than her name.Lacey’s typical days involved dealing with the obligatory underwear jokes, her school’s click of Mean Girls, and her “embarrassingly” loud family–that’s enough to stress out any girl in middle-s [...]

    3. So the very first thing to sell me on Oh My Godmother: The Glitter Trap is the cover. Yes I know you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but I do. Also working in a youth services department at a public library, I can tell you so do kids. If they don't like the cover there is a good chance they won't read it. The second thing to sell me was the summary, which sound like a great young, tween read and it was!The Glitter Trap is written from the perspective of the main character Lacey Unger-Ware, [...]

    4. It is every girl’s dream to have their own fairy godmother. But having a fairy godmother is totally different from being a fairy godmother, as Lacey Unger-Ware discovers in the Glitter Trap. When Lacey accidentally traps popular girl Paige Harrington’s fairy godmother in her hair, it’s up to Lacey to wield the fairy’s wand. Under the tutelage of cranky Katrina, the grounded godmother, Lacey must learn enough magic to allow Paige to live happily ever after, or Lacey and Katrina will be cu [...]

    5. Sparkling Good --I really enjoyed reading OMG: The Glitter Trap. Even the title is creative and eye-catching--as is the cover. As a writer of children's book and YA novels, I love reading fun stories like this one, and I appreciate them from a structural point-of-view. I can't wait to read it to my eight-year-old granddaughter. She'll laugh.Lacey Unger-Ware is the protagonist's name. If you say it fast it's Lacy Underwear. That's hilarious and clever. Lacy's unique voice starts on the first page [...]

    6. Very nice book that makes subtle points about being true to oneself, looking beyond the surface when judging someone, etc. Lacey Unger-Ware, the girl with the highly unfortunate name, falls into a situation where the most popular girl in her school loses her own personal fairy godmother and Lacey has to substitute in. It doesn't help that the popular girl doesn't like Lacey. However, with the help of the real fairy godmother, old and cranky, Lacey perseveres and ultimately figures it out. 3rd gr [...]

    7. Middle schooler Lacey's got her rival's fairy godmother stuck in her hair! And if that's not a juicy enough premise, when the fairy godmother is injured by Lacey's cat, Lacey must step in and find a way to grant the most important wish of popular girl Paige, or else Lacey's own dreams will never come true. It's one crazy plot twist after another, but as Lacey becomes more and more involved with Paige, she realizes that people are not always what they seem. Lacey's resilience and resourcefulness [...]

    8. The Glitter Trap is a cute, fun read that tweens will have no problem connecting with. The characters are ones children ages 8+ can identify with, plus they have layers and certain unique traits. Plot wise The Glitter Trap is interesting and light; a girl is forced to be a fill-in fairy godmother or else her dreams won't come true. The story paired with the amazing illustrations that show up every so often throughout the book will grant readers their every wish. Overall 5/5 stars; I will defiant [...]

    9. As an adult reader, I loved the story and I loved the illustrations. And as a person who was unfortunately blessed with a name that was easy for other kids to make fun of, I can TOTALLY relate to "the underwear girl," as I'm sure many a contemporary middle school student will. Attempting to be a fairy godmother is apparently much harder (and funnier!) than I would have thought. The humor and wacky situations that accompany those attempts make for a book that will delight younger and older reader [...]

    10. When 12 year old Lacey accidentally injures a classmate’s fairy godmother, she must try to find a way to set things right. As Lacey tries to balance her responsibilities with godmother duties, middle school, family and friends, the reader is taken on a journey that is truly magical.

    11. Loved it! All the middle schoolers will be falling over themselves to be the first to read this series! Can't wait for the next one!!

    12. OMG! I want to be Lacey Unger-Ware! This main character is incredibly smart, funny, and adventurous. Cute story, dynamic characters, lots of actionrfect for a movie! ;)

    13. This book was really good! My favorite part was probably when Lacey found out Paige was actually a big geek! It really got me interested. I cant think of any parts i didn't like. I recommend this book for girls who like glitter and fairies because it was somewhat about that stuff. another part i really liked was when she was getting chased by pooping pigeons! This book was super funny and definitely deserves five stars!

    14. This is a great book! I love how Katarina is so sassy when she gets stuck in the glitter. And when Lacey Unger~Ware becomes the most popular girl in the school's godmother: Paige Harrington, then, what else can happen?

    15. Lacey Unger-Ware (yes, her real name) is in for a boatload of trouble when popular girl Paige Harrington's fairy godmother, Katarina, gets trapped in Lacey's hair. With Katarina out of commission, Lacey has to take over Katarina's fairy godmother duties and get Paige her heart's desire. If she doesn't, Lacey's heart's desire will never come true either!Poor Lacey. What were her parents thinking? Bad enough to hyphenate Unger-Ware, but then to name their child Lacey? Terrible. Lacey was a fun cha [...]

    16. Lacey Ungar-Ware (what were her parents thinking?) has enough embarrassment in her life without running into a glittered poster and becoming covered with the stuff. Her parents run a restaurant called The Hungry Moose; Paige Harrington, new girl turned popular cheerleader calls her "underwear girl", and she doesn't think that cute Scott will ever look her way. When a fairy godmother, Katarina, meant to grant Paige's wish gets stuck in her hair and almost digested by her cat, Lacey has to find a [...]

    17. I received this book from to read and review. Magic, faeries, friendship and comedy to boot—what’s not to like? This book is a fantastic take-off of the Cinderella story written in today’s style, for today’s young girl. I am sure every young girl will love it. I am not one, but I absolutely did. Lacey Unger-Ware ends up substituting for the faerie godmother of Paige Harrington, the most popular girl in school, after she accidently bumps into a poster Paige is hanging and injures the rea [...]

    18. ** I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **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 m [...]

    19. In other words, things are not what they seem. I really struggled to get into this book initially and put it aside for a month before making myself go back and start again, and I’m glad I did because it’s a good story. Lacey Unger-Ware, known to her classmates as “Underwear Girl”, is unlucky enough to accidentally get glitter glue stuck in her hair, and then even more unlucky when she accidentally gets Paige Harrington’s fairy godmother stuck in her hair too. Paige is, of course, beaut [...]

    20. Navigating through the choppy waters of middle school isn't easy and when your name is Lacey Unger-Ware, it's particularly challenging. Known as "Underwear Girl" to the popular crowd, Lacey can't help but think girls like Paige Harrington have it all. But is that really the case? When Lacey gets glitter glue stuck in her hair, it leads to a chain of events that helps to answer that question. A fairy godmother, Katarina, gets caught in Lacey's "glitter trap" and then swallowed by Lacey's cat, Jul [...]

    21. Lacey Unger-Ware (yep that's her name) thinks Paige Harrington is stuck-up and mean. Paige is the fastest rising most popular girl in school history. Lacey and her friend Sunny are often picked on by Paige who calls Lacey "underwear girl". Then there is the fairy incident. Lacey gets glitter stuck in her hair from one of Paige's glittery posters and accidentally traps Paige's fairy godmother. Now if Paige's dreams don't come true none of Lacey's will either. So Lacey has to learn how to be a fai [...]

    22. Lacey Unger-Ware? What were her parents thinking?Super popular Paige is putting up a poster, and Lacey backs away - right into a poster full of glitter and glue. Yikes, glitter hair! Then Paige's fairy godmother gets caught in the glitter. Uh oh! Paige is not going to have her dream come true, and as a result, Lacey will NEVER have ANY of her dreams come true.Lacey tries to explain that it's Paige's fault that she had glitter in her hair, but the fairy godmother doesn't care. Lacey has to fix th [...]

    23. Cute - the type of book that will appeal to girls (and those mothers worried about "content"). This first book in the series sets up what I'm guessing is the premise: ordinary, not-popular girl runs into a fairy godmother, does magic, everyone learns lessons, fairy godmother disappears.In this case, the "running into" is more "fairy godmother flies into the glitter-glued hair", and boy is she cranky! This is not your traditional sweet, understanding, helpful fairy godmother. No, Katatina is more [...]

    24. This book was amazing. I loved how the characters were always fighting but they will end up getting happy. Also because the drama that they had between the both girls. What I also liked was that at the end the enemies became best friends with each other. Now there like sisters. The little fairy godmother was cool but at the same time she was also rude and mean. The took place in a high school when this popular girl will be the meanest one to everyone because she is the "queen." In conclusion thi [...]

    25. Cute, Cute, Cute - give to fans who are ready for a little bit more than the Whatever After series. This is not a fairy tale adaptation, just a fun story with a fairy godmother who gets distracted from her duties and latest charge by some glitter. Much hilarity and fun mishaps ensue, with such a subtle message of being yourself and not judging until you walk in another's shoes, that the ending seems natural and perfect. I'll read parts 2&3!
