Review Thursday- My Fair Godmother

My Fair Godmother (My Fair Godmother, #1)

My Fair Godmother by Janette Rallison

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. (summery taken from goodreads)

Oh how I loved this book. Savannah a pretty, popular high school girl is having the worst week ever! First off her older, smart, unpopular sister steals her boyfriend and then to top it off, she is visited by her Fair Godmother. Yup, her Fair Godmother Chrissy has not passed the test to become a Fairy Godmother just yet and Savannah is her latest project.
Savannah gets 3 wishes, but Chrissy won't let her finish her sentence before Chrissy sends her off into a wacky adventure in the Middle Ages. When one of her wishes lands hunky Tristan in the middle ages Savannah must find a way to get them both back home before the Black Knight ruins everything.

I found that at first I did not much care for Savannah's personality, but as I kept reading I began to really like her. I loved Rallison's take on the fairy tales. Her writing and sense of humor was very entertaining!
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
