Dressed as a fairy, Julie Nuffield (or “Nuff” to her friends) discovers everything she wishes for comes true — but never in the way she expects. As each wish provokes new disasters, she begins a quest to discover the secret history behind the costume. Only when she reveals its purpose can she find the right wish to bring her happiness. Until then, she must live as the woman they call Fairy Nuff.
