What I Wore to Save the World

Third in the fabulous series that started with Why I Let My Hair Grow Out
it's not just the end of high school...
Senior year's coming up fast and Morgan still has no clue about college, or a career-the whole rest of-her-life thing is basically a blank. Maybe it's because she spent her junior year obsessing about Colin, the hot Irish guy she fell for last summer (that was right around the same time she discovered she's a half- goddess from the days of Irish lore... you had to be there). She even saved Colin from a nasty enchantment, but he doesn't know that. Colin doesn't believe in magic, not even a little.
...it's the end of the world
But then a mysterious message reunites her with Colin, who turns out to be caught up in the biggest faery-made disaster ever. We're talking the end of reality-not just reality TV. To save the world, she's going to have to tell Colin the truth about her half-goddess mojo. But if he doesn't believe in magic, how will he ever believe in her?
This series is just one of those that is always fun to read. The third book in the series has a little bit of a different vibe to it, I can't pinpoint it but it just felt a little different (make sense?) But anyway, just as good!
My favorite is still the first book so if you haven't started the series be sure and start with Why I Let My Hair Grow Out where you first meet Morgan and really get to know her!
There are more secrets revealed about Morgan and her half-goddess self in this installment so you won't want to miss it! Morgan has kept her mortal and fairy worlds seperate until now...but with evil queen Titania's new diabolical scheme things are getting tricky!
The girls at my middle school love this series and the books are usually on hold and rarely on the shelf! I think the series would also do well in a high school library :o)
