Book Review: My Fair Godmother by Janette Rallison

Genre: Young Adult

Be careful what you wish for.

After she's spent her last dollar on the perfect prom dress, Savannah's boyfriend dumps her for her big sister. Heartbroken and confused, Savannah wishes for a true prince to take her to the prom.

Enter Chrysanthemum "Chrissy" Everstar, Savannah's pink-haired teenaged "fair" godmother - she's not a good fairy student, hence the title. In granting Savannah her three wishes, Chrissy accidentally sends her back to the Middle Ages, once as Cinderella and once as Snow White. Third time Savanna makes a wish, Chrissy sends Tristan, a surprisingly cute boy from school, to the Middle Ages to become Savannah's prince. Savannah takes another trip back to help Tristan. In order to get back to the present, Tristan and Savannah has to battle a cyclops, dragon, and the mysterious, yet sexy Black Knight.

I have to admit, I love fractured fairy tales, especially humorous ones that feature teens of today. Rallison's, My Fair Godmother, is such fairy tale. I would have loved to have seen more of Chrissy, but her small role comes in at the right times. Even though Savannah appears to be somewhat of an airhead at times, you do find yourself cheering her on. And she doesn't stay an airhead, but grows through the course of the book.

I definitely recommend My Fair Godmother to readers looking for a light-hearted romantic comedy with likable characters!

Rating: 4/5
