Summary: (Amazon)
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.

My Thoughts:
Another book where I took notes! I think this new review system might actually work out for me! The start of this book was fantastic! It was different then any start I had ever seen! It drew me in, in a way I hadn’t experienced in a while.

I admit that this didn’t sound very good to me but I was surprised to find out that I was wrong! It was so much better then I expected. I know I gave it a B but I think that’s partly my lack of love for fantasy. You all know that I am pretty hard on fantasy books but if I love them I can get almost anyone to read them! This was a great book for all fantasy lovers! Those who are skeptical about fantasy should give this a try. Fairies are a nice change to all this vampire stuff these days!
