YA book reviews, reading and recommending since 2009

My Fair Godmother After her boyfriend dumps her for her older sister, 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.

My Fair Godmother is currently my favourite book. =) It is filled with laughter, magic and fairy tales. Janette created Cinderella and Snow White different from the fairytales. Her writing is wonderful, I can picture everything in my head clearly. Such vivid writing. Honestly, I have nothing but praises for the book. My favourite scenes would be those with Tristan in it. *MINOR SPOILER*

I laughed really loud when Savannah said a lie and a reptile came out from her mouth. *SPOILER ENDS*

Sometimes I feel frustrated with Chrissy. Why couldn’t she just help Savannah and her friends? I found myself wishing she could be more responsible and not point out Savannah’s wrongdoings all the time. I guess this is why she’s called a Fair Godmother. Overall it is one of the best books I have ever read. I am very eager to read Just One Wish also by Janette Rallison. I hope it will be as good as this!

Great story + awesome characters + stunning cover = SUPERB BOOK!
