My Fair Godmother by Janette Rallison

Finding your one true love can be a Grimm experience!
After her boyfriend dumps her for her older sister, sophomore Savannah Delano wishes she could find a true prince to take her to the prom. Enter Chrissy (Chrysanthemum) Everstar: Savannah’s gum-chewing, cell phone–carrying, high heel-wearing Fair Godmother. Showing why she’s only Fair—because she’s not a very good fairy student—Chrissy mistakenly sends Savannah back in time to the Middle Ages, first as Cinderella, then as Snow White. Finally she sends Tristan, a boy in Savannah’s class, back instead to turn him into her prom-worthy prince. When Savannah returns to the Middle Ages to save Tristan, they must team up to defeat a troll, a dragon, and the mysterious and undeniably sexy Black Knight. Laughs abound in this clever fairy tale twist from a master of romantic comedy.

I absolutely loved Janette Rallison’s book Just One Wish. Being the fairytale lover that I am I decided to give her book My Fair Godmother a try. I shouldn’t have been surprised that it was a delightful & totally entertaining read. This was a wonderful fractured fairytale with a teenage fairy who takes wishes quite literally.

Couldn’t help but laugh at Rallison’s humor including memoir elves who return to the magical realm with atrocious grammar and “write things in text message form (e.g., R U going 2 the mall?) and for no apparent reason occasionally call out the name Edward Cullen.”

Content: Totally cute and clean! Nothing objectionable. My library shelved it as a young adult book but I would let my 10 year old read it.

Rating: 4.5 Stars. A great book by Janette Rallison.
