Book Description:
Some people bomb auditions. Sadie Ramirez throws up during her tryouts on TV show America's Top Talent. Her performance is so bad, it earns her a fairy godmother through the Magical Alliance's Pitiful Damsel Outreach Program. Enter Chrysanthemum Everstar: a gum-chewing, cell phone-carrying, high heel wearing fairy godmother in training. She misinterprets Sadie's wishes and sends her back in time to be a part of The Little Mermaid story and then makes her one of the twelve dancing princesses. Wishes are permanent, and if Sadie wants to get back to her home, she'll have to strike a magical bargain--one that involves stealing a goblet from a powerful fairy queen. 







Rallison writes some of the most fun, light hearted reads out there and her My Fair Godmother series is one of these best ones she writes. Full of chaos, laughs, smiles, and a fairy godmother in training and her little helper, that is sure to make anyone fall in love with them and keep turning the pages simply because you are having such a great time. 

Crissy is by far the worst fairy out there. If there is something she can make a mess out of she will but she always has her charges best interests at heart, even if they don't think she does. 

Transported from one fairy tale to the next, each one more disastrous than the previous, Sadie is starting to wonder what the heck she got herself into. Wicked queens, rogue fairies, princes, princesses, mermaids, and all matter of mayhem ensue making this a delightful light read that is sure to appeal to anyone.

Laugh out loud moments and hijinks you won't want to miss, this third installment in the series truly was so much fun and a great addition. Fans of the series and of Rallison's other works, won't want to miss this.

  1. I love that cover! It's so cute.
    The book sounds like a lot of fun either. A fairy godmother who is bad at her job? I can see how that would entail many hilarious scenes.
    Great review, Ali! :)

  5. This sounds like a cute series. Not my cuppa tea, but Crissy reminds me so much of the fairy godmother in Ella Enchanted. So clueless. Love it!

  7. Well, it sounds absolutely hilarious! And if the funny is of the smart variety, mixed in with a bit of chaos, that much better :P I'll definitely add this to my towering pile. Also, how cute is that cover? Very exciting review :)

  8. I have seen this series, but passed on it because I figured it is was more suited for Middle Grade. Is it?

    1. It is a younger YA read and would be suitable for middle grade but it is more geared towards YA. ;)
