About How I Magically Messed Up My Life in Four Freakin’ Days

Ever wanted to grow a five-story tall flower in central park? How about fight a deadly battle under the subway tunnels of Manhattan? Don’t worry. I never wanted to either. But if you’re ever being chased by ladies made of mist and you have to save the girl with the sparkly eyes you’ve never had the guts to say actual words to, there’s an app for that.
I found a magic cell phone, opened an app I shouldn’t have, burned down the set shop for my high school’s theatre, and it was all downhill from there. A drag queen seer who lives under a bridge is my only hope for keeping my mom alive, and I think the cops might be after me for destroying my dad’s penthouse.
But it gets better! Now I’m stuck being the sidekick to the guy who got me into this mess in the first place. It’ll be a miracle if I survive until Monday.

O’Russell combines a nuanced urban fantasy world with a plausible teenage misfit to create a mature take on young adult fantasy.

Bryant Adams is an ordinary teenager with ordinary teenage problems, like having divorced parents, crushing on the girl who sits next to him in half his lessons, and having his mother teach drama at his school. And, between his best friend being a hit with women of all ages, his mother wanting to set him up on a date, and keeping visits to his father’s flat a secret, his free time seems just as filled with serious problems. Until he [...]
