Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In her latest effort, Rallison returns to themes of sibling rivalry and romance, familiar to readers of Revenge of the Cheerleaders (2007). Here, though, she adds fractured-fairy-tale magic to the breezy plot. Sixteen-year-old Savannah is devastated when her boyfriend dumps her for her studious older sister, and she dreams that her life will take a fairy-tale turn, complete with a handsome prince, a ball, and a happy ending. Her wishes bring the astonishing arrival of Chrissy, an aspiring fairy godmother. Still in training and not quite in command of her magical abilities, Chrissy sends Savannah through a chain of otherworldly mishaps, including visits to Cinderella and Snow White’s stories and finally to the Middle Ages, where Savannah defeats a cast of magical creatures and discovers that regular guys are sometimes preferable to princes. Memos from Chrissy and her professors alternate with Savannah’s often hilarious narrative. The irreverent references to familiar tales, romantic twists, and frequent comedic asides will delight fans of light fantasy, as will the likable characters, who move beyond stereotype. Grades 6-9. --Gillian Engberg

Janette Rallison has produced a wonderfully fractured fairy tale here with enough twists to surprise and delight even the most jaded and cynical of readers. The surprises begin with the choice of protagonists. You'd think it would be Jane Delano, the shy, studious older sister who has long loved Hunter Delmont from afar, not Savannah Delano, the flirtatious, air-head, shopaholic younger sister whom Hunter is dating and taking to the prom. But no, a furious Jane sets out to do a total makeover, with the help of a delighted and clueless Savannah, in order to punish Hunter for ignoring her. Instead Jane accidentally wins Hunter's heart, and a devastated Savannah is the one who gets a fairy godmother, one Chrysanthemum Everstar, Chrissy for short, to grant her three wishes ensuring that she AND Jane lived happily ever after....

Of course it isn't QUITE that simple.

Problem number one is that Chrissy is about as flighty and immature as Savannah is. As a result, two half heard wishes have Savannah experiencing the Middle Ages up close and personal in decidedly unromantic and disturbingly realistic versions of the Cinderella and Snow White stories, which feature Savannah learning how to cook and clean the peasant way. A sadder but wiser Savannah makes a very careful third and final wish, which results in a boy who had expressed some interest in dating her being sent back to the Middle Ages with orders to come back a prince... or not at all. So with the help of a disgruntled leprechaun a horrified Savannah must figure out a way to be sent back as well in order to help Tristan Hawkins complete his assignment.

Hilarity and chaos ensue.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I can't help it; I have a weird addiction to fairy tales. Which is pretty much the only reason I got this book. While I loved fractured fairy tales, the entire teeny-bopper aura of this book was a little nauseating.

How happy I am to report that if one can put up with the nauesating sweetness she will be in love with this book! It's cutesy, it involves annoying teenagers, and it's a freakin' fairy tale on top of everything. If that is your thing, you will love this book and fortunately I was sucked in.

And all the aforementioned compliments are not to suggest Rallison isn't a gifted writer (I am aware that the aforementioned adjectives can be "bad".) On the contrary, Rallision has a gift with words. She has a fun, simple, and fluid style that is brimming with personality and charm. I'm sure some will complain that her characters are not the tragically three-dimensional heroes and heroines of drama, but for the nature of this adorable little romantic comedy, they were perfect.

I love the approach of the story. It's probably been done before, but I don't care and neither will readers. The "fair"y godmother is nothing but a might-as-well-be modern-day ditz who would rather shop than complete her education in magically assisting poor damsels. What I liked, however, is that this fairy happened to be a reflection of the main character Savannah, who upon observation of her disaster-causing godmother begins to change for the better. I like stuff like that.

And as a fairy tale fan, I love how Rallison knew her tales and was able to offer some hilarious-yet-keen insight into them (of course a poisoned apple would be tempting in the winter when no fresh fruit is available!). It does wonders for the plot.

"My Fair Godmother" is clever, fresh, and romantic with a great plot and endearing characters. I will recommend this to any girl I meet.

If only Savannah Delano's beautiful but stupid boyfriend hadn't broken up with her for her sister - she wouldn't be in this mess. Instead of planning to go to prom with Hunter, in the gorgeous $350.00 dress she'd bought specifically for the event, she's stuck with a frustrating and inexperienced Fairy - excuse me, FAIR - Godmother. When Chrysanthemum Everstar gives Savannah three wishes, Savannah thinks she's got it under control - I mean how hard can it be to use three wishes to wish your life back to the way it was? (A.K.A. perfect.) A lot harder than you think. Especially if Chrissy is in charge. Savannah gets stuck in the Middle Ages in two fairytales she never wanted to be a part of - and then has to turn around and rescue (again, from the smelly Middle Ages) a boy from school she told herself she was going to avoid (because he's the last person she wants to take her to prom). Can Savannah save him in time and regain control of her life? Or will these events alter her life in a way that can never be changed?

MY THOUGHTS -

You know those books that you pick up thinking you're getting into a light and fluffy read that may or may not be good literature? When I pick up a book like that, I try not to expect too much from in in character development, story line, originality, etc. MY FAIR GODMOTHER by Janette Rallison was exactly one of those books. I planned to read it, enjoy it for what it is, give it three stars, and move on.

I was WAY wrong! This book began surprising me from the first pages - how Rallison introduced her characters was amazingly intriguing. Instead of starting from Savannah's perspective, she dives into her sister Jane's.
