My Fair Godmother Book Review

At work, we did a Sub for Santa project, and I decided to kill two birds with one stone. Our library is fundraising to construct a civic auditorium and was selling new books at a discount. Being such a booklover myself I decided to purchase a couple of books for my Sub for Santa donation and help towards our Center for Story and Arts project.

One of the books I picked up was My Fairy Fair Godmother by Janette Rallison. It's a quirky twist to the traditional fairy godmother tales and caught my interest, so I purchased the ebook for myself. I really enjoyed it!

It tells the tale of poor sophomore Savannah, who after being dumped by her boyfriend--for her older sister no less--is granted three wishes by her not-quite-a-fairy-yet godmother, Chrissy Everstar. Chrissy hasn't done so well in school and is hoping this extra credit project will help her get into the Godmother University. Unfortunately, Chrissy doesn't listen very well and Savannah, wishing her life could be a fairy tale so she could go to prom with a hunky prince-like guy, ends up instead living in the Middle Ages first as Cinderella and then Snow White.

The book is full of humor (Savannah's limited Disney only knowledge of fairytales makes a mess of guessing the names of the Seven Dwarfs), adventure (highway robbers, dragons, cyclops, Dark Knights), romance (with a name like Tristan, how can there not be romance?), and self discovery ... plus a mystery to solve.

Rallison has written several other books I'm going to have to check out.

  1. I started reading Rallison and just couldn't stop! She's amazing--I highly recommend each and every one of her books. Love them!

    Oh, and this is "MY Fair Godmother." Not "The." :)
