My Fair Godmother


By Janette Rallison

Summary: 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.

My Thoughts: Well, I'm a huge Rallison fan. I've really enjoyed everything I've read by her. When I started My Fair Godmother I thought it was going to be too immature for my tastes but I was wrong. We get introduced to Savannah who is in love with a guy and her sister ends up with him. Well, truth be told, from the get go, I thought her sister belonged with him. Her sister liked him too. Well, than Savannah gets a fairy godmother and she gets 3 wishes. She basically wishes for a prince and gets sent back in time. She gets to be Cinderella and Snow White. Also, time moves differently back than. She is only gone for a little while but it seems like weeks where she is. She ends up back and sends Tristan (a guy she goes to school with) back in the middle ages to be a prince. He can not come back until he is crowned a prince. Savannah feels bad and goes back to find him. She ends up meeting another guy along the way, a masked man who she has no idea of his identity. She also comes in contact with a wizard and ends up getting a charm from him. I really liked the whole idea of these charms. I liked which each what meant.

Honestly, this book is a light romantic comedy. If you like fairytales, you'll enjoy this one. If you like romance, you'll enjoy this one. If you like reading about faraway lands, you'll like this one. If you want to know what happens to Savannah and if she gets her prom date- prince read the book to find out!


Overall:
My Fair Godmother surprised me. It honestly took me about a 100 pages before I really got into it, and I considered giving the book up. The beginning felt really immature and I wasn't enjoying it too much. I just wanted some action and it took a while for that to happen. When she met up with Tristan that is the point in the story where things changed and I knew I just had to finish it. I had to know what happened. I enjoyed it much more than I had originally thought I would.

Cover:
The cover is really stunning. Its pretty.

I'm reading the sequel My Unfair Godmother and loving it. I've laughed out loud so many times and I'm only 100 pages in.

I agree with you about the first half of the book being really immature. That really slowed me down in the beginning, but as the story progressed it did get better and in the end I loved it. Great review! Thanks!
