Winifred, fifteen, loves her life raising horses with her dad in Oregon. It’s great until her brother returns home from college with his future-in-laws. They take over her house for a month to plan the wedding. Losing her mother at birth, Winifred isn’t prepared for the scary dictator, the bratty child and creepy cat who take over her bedroom. Where else can she escape except the attic bedroom, a quiet place with her mother’s belongings? When her dad leaves to pick up a prized stallion and her brother deserts her, Winifred is forced into drudgery. What’s she supposed to do with the Fairy Godmonster who shows up by mistake? Although Winifred admires her cool mentor’s orange spiky hair, red jumpsuit and yellow boots, she’s exhausted trying to keep Fairy Godmonster from being discovered. To make everything worse, Fairy Godmonster has a malfunctioning magic whip. Instead of helping her, Fairy Godmonster creates jungles, hot tubs and wedding boutiques in her attic bedroom. Isn’t it enough to cope with strangers in her house, pregnant mares, ranch duties, household chores and the handsome usher who makes her toes tingle?
