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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
