Lily is the only girl at school without a phone. That is until she finds one in the recycle bin - a magical phone that transforms her into the popular girl she always dreamed of being - new friends, new looks, a boyfriend. Her best friend Sierra believes the power of a fairy tale is at work - and when the phone dies the spell is broken. Lily soon realizes she can’t live without her new phone. But when Sierra secretly steals it back, Lily discovers she never really needed it, or the boyfriend. The confidence the phone gave her was within her all along.
The forces of fairy tales continue to infiltrate the lives of Lily and Sierra and all their friends and foes at school. They discover love and adventure and help others find it too.
Ian Folivor, a depressed and reclusive 30-something, finds himself taking advice from a growth in his bathroom after a failed suicide attempt. The Mold, a smooth talking fungus who was born of the filth collecting in a corner of Ian's neglected bathroom, works to win Ian's trust by helping him clean himself up and remodel his lifestyle. With The Mold's help, Ian attracts the attention of a neighbor he's been ogling through his peephole, Leah, and he manages to find a slice of happiness despite his unnatural circumstances. But Ian starts to receive strange messages from his old and broken down TV set that make him realize that The Mold may not be as helpful as it seems to be, and strange characters combined with stranger events cast Ian's life in the shadow of an epic battle between good and evil that Ian is only partially aware of.
