This book was on my Wishlist for some time so when I spotted it in the library I grabbed it and the good thing is I wasn’t disappointed. Before I tell you how much fun it was let me tell you a little about the story. 2 sisters-Jane and Savannah. Jane steals Savannah’s boyfriend Hunter. Savannah is heart-broken which is why when a fairy godmother asks her to make 3 wishes, she wishes for a Price and a happily ever after like in fairy tales. But the problem is that her godmother is a teenage fairy, Chrysanthemum Everstar(Chrissy) who is granting her wishes as part of an extra grades project.
As part of Savannah’s first 2 wishes, Chrissy sends her to the middle ages, once as Cinderella and once as Snow White. The third time, even though Savannah tries to get her wish correct, she is again stuck in the middle ages with Tristan who is a guy in her school. They both have to take care of whatever problem they have and come back to the 21st century.
I just loved the concept and the fact that the fairy Godmother was a teenage girl who was always shopping and partying. I loved how Savannah’s ideas about a fairy tale were shattered when she went to the middle ages. In fact, it was so logical that even I had to think over how dreamy these fairy tales really are. I loved all the characters. Savannah was a typical popular teenage girl but I liked how much depth there was to her even when portrayed as a caricature.
I loved the sense of humor and I laughed out loud many times. It’s such a fun book. The end was a little confusing for me but overall I enjoyed My Fair Godmother a lot. Those who love YA or love fun books, I’m sure you would like this one.
