Author Coleen Murtagh Paratore gives fairytale love stories a modern gloss through the eyes of 12-year-old cherry-cordial eater and classic-literature reader Willafred Haversham. What Willa wishes for most in the world is a father, but so far no luck. When she and her wedding planner mother, Stella, move back home to Cape Cod, Willa’s luck begins to change. With help from her best friend Tina and candy-making Nana, Willa decides wishing for a father isn’t enough - it’s time to take action.
