I'm not against magic; I loved books like Miss Peregrine's Home for Unusual Children and the movie Somewhere in Time. So I can't quite put my finger on why this book did not appeal to me. There were moments where I thought that possibly the book could be for middle school students. The detail about squishy keychains that are animals doing a poop would be right up their alley. However, a PTA mother and some of the other words used didn't seem quite right. The premise of this book could potentially be for anyone - a happy place where the weather is always just right seems to be losing its magic. The fairy godmothers are certain that a fake marriage between a guy named Ransom (hmmm, like the author of Miss Peregrine's) and a Japanese girl named Lucky Fujiki seems to be the cure. Unfortunately, I did not feel interested in the characters, and I did not feel a sense of magic.
