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.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series My Fair Godmother. It’s unusual for a sequel to be better than the original book but Janette Rallison managed this amazing feat with My Unfair Godmother.

This book is cute, clean and fun. I laughed out loud more times than I can remember. The references Janette makes to popular culture are hysterical. References from everything from Twilight to popular music are sprinkled throughout. I’m not sure if this book was supposed to make me cry but there is one scene near the end were I had tears in my eyes.

Well done Janette! My Unfair Godmother is a hilarious twisted tale that combined elements from Robin Hood and Rumplestiltskin into one fabulous adventure. If you enjoyed My Fair Godmother I’m sure you’ll love this one. It can be read as a stand alone but I highly recommend reading My Fair Godmother first.

My Unfair Godmother is scheduled for release on April 12. 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.

My Unfair Godmother by Janette Rallison is a companion book to My Fair Godmother. The story features the same fair godmother Chrissy that as in the companion book who gets her charges into terrible fairytale situations. The books can be read in any order. This book stars Tansy who has felt torn apart and neglected over her parents divorce. When Tansy's little sister gets a job singing in a touring musical Tansy has to go and live with the father whom she has felt abandoned her. Tansy's rebellious boyfriend gets her into some minor trouble with the police and she is visited by Chrissy a Fair Godmother who offers her three wishes. Tansy then has to deal with Robin Hood and his men and is thrown into the Rapunzel story.

This is a delightfully fun romantic comedy. Tansy's growth as a person was fun to read as well as was the romance that slowly builds between her and the police chief's son. The fairytale stories were carefully interwoven and presented in an entertaining and original way. Rallison is one of my new favorite authors. Her stories are consistently entertaining and present the reader with strong girls and smart guys whose relationships develop in realistic and healthy ways.

Appropriateness: There's no adult content in this book. Chrissy begins the story as a rebellious teen. She has a horrible boyfriend who gets her in some minor legal trouble. She grows up throughout the story and is able to repair the relationships in her life. The romance is limited to some minor kissing. I would recommend this book to teens 12+ and there is nothing in the book that is inappropriate for younger readers.
