Rating: 3.5/5 stars
Perfect for fans of Geekerella and Jenn Bennett, this charming, sparkly rom-com follows a wish-granting teen forced to question if she’s really doing good—and if she has the power to make her own dreams come true.
Charity is a fairy godmother. She doesn’t wear a poofy dress or go around waving a wand, but she does make sure the deepest desires of the student population at Jack London High School come true. And she knows what they want even better than they do because she can glimpse their perfect futures.
But when Charity fulfills a glimpse that gets Vindhya crowned homecoming queen, it ends in disaster. Suddenly, every wish Charity has ever granted is called into question. Has she really been helping people? Where do these glimpses come from, anyway? What if she’s not getting the whole picture?
Making this existential crisis way worse is Noah—the adorkable and (in Charity’s opinion) diabolical ex of one of her past clients—who blames her for sabotaging his prom plans and claims her interventions are doing more harm than good. He demands that she stop granting wishes and help him get his girl back. At first, Charity has no choice but to play along. But soon, Noah becomes an unexpected ally in getting to the bottom of the glimpses. Before long, Charity dares to call him her friend…and even starts to wish he were something more. But can the fairy godmother ever get the happily ever after?

Glimpsed follows the story of self-proclaimed fairy godmother Charity, who has the ability to see the deepest wishes of her fellow students at Jack London High School. Whenever she glimpses a wish, she tasks herself with making it come true for that person (nicknamed Cindies), no matter what.
Her newest Cindy is a quiet girl named Vindhya, who desperately wants to be crowned Homecoming Queen. Charity determinedly takes on this difficult task with less than a week to go until the big event.
Her efforts are made even more difficult when the ex boyfriend of one of her former Cindies discovers her secret and blackmails her into getting back the girl he lost. With her time on short supply, Charity races to compete two almost impossible wishes before she and her Cindies identities are outed to the whole school.
This book was such a fun read! I couldn’t put it down! I really liked Charity and Noah’s friendship and how they throw little quips at each other. They were so funny 😂
Hope you all enjoyed my review! ❤️ I really enjoyed reading this one! Have you guys read Glimpsed yet? Let me know what you thought of it in the comments 😄 Bye guys, happy reading! x
About the Author
G.F. Miller can write 80,000-word novels, but ask her to sit down and write 250 true and meaningful words about herself and she is likely to have an existential crisis. Who am I, really? She ponders. What do I want to be known for? Does anyone even read the back flap or visit author websites? But eventually she will pull herself together and tell you that…She married her college sweetheart and is mom to three littles who routinely make her heart burst and her head explode (it’s a messy business, love). There are puppies big and small residing at her house (you’ll be seeing a lot of them if you follow her on Instagram). She’s been to a dozen countries, but not nearly as many as she would like. She loves learning all the things. She cries at all the wrong times. She makes faces at herself in the mirror. She believes in the Oxford comma. And she’s always here for a dance party. While the stories she has brewing in her soul vary wildly from one another, there are three things they will always have in common: love, snappy dialogue, and happy endings.
