A wickedly funny fairytale for modern women from the ?laugh-out-loud funny? (Washington Post Book World) author of The Cinderella Pact.

Genie?s commitment-phobic boyfriend is finally proposing?on national television. To the woman he?s been seeing on the side. It?s a major wake-up call for a girl who?s hit the snooze button on her life a few too many times.

With no names mentioned on the broadcast, Genie finds herself flooded with presents and congratulations. It?s up to her to explain the mistake, but sometimes waking up is hard to do.

When her parents start planning the reception, she can?t help enjoying herself. Why call off the so-called engagement just yet? It?s fun to play princess. But unless a prince shows up?and soon?this dream could start getting weird.
