Book Description

After her parents' divorce Tansy never really felt like her life got back to normal. And now that her too-busy parents and their respective new spouses don't seem to have time for her, Tansy has been sent to live with her semi-neurotic grandmother. After one incident involving a bad date, a can of spray paint, and the police, Tansy fears she is doomed for life. Enter Chrissy Everstar, Tansy's fairy in shining er... high heels. With three wishes to help set her life right, Tansy is taken along for a ride that includes Robin Hood and his Merry Men, who turn out to be trouble when they steal from the rich in her town. When the police chief's son, Hudson, sees Tansy hanging out with these fairy tale criminals, she'll have some serious explaining to do. That's if Tansy can find a way to stop spinning gold and undo the "help" that Chrissy has bestowed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yearning To Read Review April 23, 2011
By Manatee
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
When Tansy's father divorces her mother and moves away, Tansy does everything she can to anger her father. She answers his questions during their phone calls with monosyllables and stops reading novels, because that had been their "thing". When she has to move to Arizona to live with her father, she does the most rebellious thing yet - she starts dating high school's bad boy, Bo. Bo seems like a great catch, and Tansy believes he's just misunderstood. But when a date-turned-wrong (that wasn't actually her fault) ends in vandalism and a trip to the police station, Tansy is drowning in an ocean of trouble, and she doesn't know how to get out of it.
Enter Chrysanthemum Everstar. She's a fair godmother - not good enough to be a fairy godmother. She's been here before (taking care of the lives of pathetic mortals), and there are a whole lot of other places she'd rather be. She pushes Tansy to make her first wish - and everything goes wrong. It's the start of a chain reaction that may or may not be good for Tansy. There's Robin Hood and his Merry Men (a.k.a. runaway bandits and the city's most wanted criminals) and Rumpelstiltskin in the mix, as well as Hudson, the police chief's beautiful and smart son (who may or may not be into Tansy).
In this one heck of a fairytale, not everything is what it seems, and Tansy must learn the moral of her story before she can ever have hope of getting herself and her family safely home.


My thoughts -
I wasn't quite sure if it was possible. I didn't know where Rallison was going to go with this book, and while I was sure it was going to be great, I didn't exactly know how great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting May 7, 2011
Fair Godmother Chrysanthemum Everstar is at again. She is still trying to get in to Fairy Godmother University so she can become a Fairy Godmother instead of just a Fair Godmother. When the opportunity arises for her to become Tansy's fair godmother so she can earn some extra credit she jumps at the chance. Tansy is around 75% pathetic which apparently qualifies her to be sent a fair godmother. How is Tansy this pathetic you might ask? Well, her parents got divorced and she feels her father has abandoned her, she moves in to their house and goes through a whole slew of rebellion, especially when she dates jerky Bo and she keeps finding herself in trouble, especially when she has to tell her brother why Robin Hood and his merry men are in her bedroom! I love fair godmother Chrissy! She is disastrous and ditzy and loves to fight with the leprechaun Clover!

This was another great book by Janette Rallison!! I was a bit surprised that the story started out so gloomy. Usually Janette writes pretty fluffy and cheerful stories but this one has some gloomy moments, but they don't last long and I think it really made the story all the more realistic to me! The characters were authentic, there was Tansy who was normal teenage girl dealing with divorce, the step-family that had a hard time understanding her, and Hudson, a police chiefs son who was suddenly her unwanted body guard. I loved the romance between Hudson and Tansy, it started as an "I hate you relationship", and then moved to a "you're annoying but attractive", etc. etc. The tension was great and the ending was wonderful and as always, Janette keeps it clean and sweet.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Unfair Godmother April 21, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Tansy Miller has problems. She is shipped off to live with her father, who divorced her mother years ago, and his new family, in some small Arizona town while her sister gets to perform on Broadway. Her rebellious behavior to annoy her father is backfiring, and she's pretty sure her boyfriend doesn't love her. Enter Chrysanthemum Everstar, Tansy's fair godmother (yes, fair. Chrissy has yet to be accepted into Fairy Godmother University).

Three wishes and pandemonium ensue where Robin Hood and his Merry Men are brought into the 21st century, a few choice people are sent back to the 12th century, oh and there is Rumplestiltskin and King John, of course.

Let the fun begin.

My Unfair Godmother was a fantastic book. It was chock full of action, adventure, laughs and romance. The main character, Tansy, was completely relatable and likable- as were most of the characters in this book (well besides the villains). The romance between Hudson and Tansy was done very nicely, they didn't immediately fall in love with each other, as most teen romance is handled in other YA books, it was almost the opposite. They didn't like each other too much in the beginning. I felt like each character that I read about had their own distinct personality. They felt like real people, and that isn't easy to achieve as an author.

For the sake of conserving space, let's just sum up that I loved almost everything about this book. If I had to complain about one thing it is that there were several similarities between this book and the author's previous one My Fair Godmother. But the story and characters were so well done that I can't even complain about that much.

Overall, excellent book about love, family, and fairy tales.

More About the Author

Janette Rallison is old. Don't ask how old, because it isn't polite. Let's just say she's older than she'd like to be and leave it at that.

Janette lives in Chandler, Arizona with her husband, five children and enough cats to classify her as "an eccentric cat lady." She did not do this on purpose. (The cats, that is; she had the children on purpose.) Every single one of the felines showed up on its own and refuses to leave. Not even the family's fearless little Westie dog can drive them off.
Since Janette has five children and deadlines to write books, she doesn't have much time left over for hobbies. But since this is the internet and you can't actually check up to see if anything on this site is true, let's just say she enjoys dancing, scuba diving, horse back riding and long talks with Orlando Bloom. (Well, I never said he answers back.)
