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.

If you're into fractured fairy-tales and light-hearted teen fiction, then this would be a good choice for your next read.

High school sophomore Savannah has it all: great looks, popularity, an awesome senior boyfriend, Hunter. But her world begins unraveling when Hunter breaks up with her for her sister, Jane, a shy, studious older version of Savannah. To add insult to injury, Jane and Hunter want to set her up on a pity prom date with another student, Tristan. And then Savannah humiliates herself very thoroughly in front of her entire school. Yeah, it's not going well. So when fairy godmother-in-training Chrysanthemum Everstar ("Chrissy") comes along to make Savannah's princely prom dreams come true (and also try to gain extra credit for her Godmother University classes), Savannah jumps at the chance to use magic to get her out of the doldrums. But Chrissy is rather inept at fairy godmothering, and when she sends Tristan back in time to become a prince, Savannah must travel to the Middle Ages to save him.

"My Fair Godmother" is a quick read that will have broad appeal to a youthful audience. It's full of humorous situations (Savannah's embarrassing moments at a school pool party, or dealing with life in the Middle Ages), but is light on characterization. Much of the story is driven by the fact that Savannah is dealing with the dual betrayal of her sister and her ex-boyfriend, but once Savannah is hurtled into the past, she suddenly gets over that situation pretty quickly.

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.
