My Fair Godmother–Review

You read that right; Chrissy, the godmother, didn’t pay much attention to studies at school which is why she graduated as  just a fair, rather than a fairy godmother. Janette Rallison has written one of the best turn-a-fairy-tale-on-its-head books ever.

Writing humor is truly hard to do. Janette is a flawless comedian while weaving a story about characters you love, root for, and feel panicked for when their situations of facing down a cyclops, dragon, and evil stepmothers who wander around at bals with poisoned apples. And in the background, so unobtrusive you would likely not notice unless your me who is always looking for the deeper meaning, you find a story about the bond of sisterhood and the pitfalls of wanting to get back at someone for hurting you.

I loved this book! I envy Janette’s ability to tell a tale, besides the fact that I envy her her goodness of heart, and amazing personality. I heartily recommend this book to anyone and everyone!

 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.

Honeslty people, you need to read this. You will never be sorry you did, but I pity those of you who don’t.
