Synopsis from Goodreads:

Tossed into a world of magic she'd only ever read about in books, Valerie Williams goes from teenage drama queen to tooth faerie almost overnight. Struggling to maintain her social status in a high school where designer clothes and having the right boyfriend makes the person, she finds that what's on the outside doesn't always determine what's on the inside.

Having a hard time adjusting to the maturity she's been forced into, Valerie finds love and makes mistakes that could cost her everything. To make matters worse, she discovers that her employer, Enamel Wear, Inc., is hiding a secret that may just leave her future hanging in the balance.

My Review:

Awesomeness!!! This story took off running down a path that I’d never expected. Salazar has an interesting way with words. It makes you feel like you’re back in high school. There’s an easy flow to the novel while reading it. This novel definitely makes you giggle. It also makes you think about how you view life, about how you treat yourself, and about how you treat others. This is a book about personal growth and families. It’s about the things that teens go through while coming into their own, but at the same time, is remarkably light-hearted. It was a brilliantly fun read.

The characters in this story are loveable. They’re so real. You have to love each and every one of them. They have real issues that are dealt with in a funny, supernatural way. At the same time, they are so human that you can’t help but feel for them. Who didn’t deal with relationship confusion at that age? And who isn’t trying to figure out what they want to do when they grow up? Salazar highlights these issues and shows individuals dealing with them in amazing ways, with extra complications.

As a whole this was a brilliantly light-hearted tale that you can’t help but get lost in. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it.
