Life is treating Magenta McPhee pretty well. She's writing the next great fantasy trilogy, and she's going to be in her mom's upcoming wedding. But what to do about her dad, who lost his job months ago and just mopes around the local library? Magenta decides to go to an online dating service, playing the role of her father, until her good intentions backfire. As Magenta comes clean to her father and the woman she inadvertently strung along, she realizes that her dad may not be totally hopeless. While job hunting in the library, he's caught the attention of a certain librarian. Here is a touchingly realistic tale about relationships, good intentions, and growing up.
