Overall I enjoyed the first one more, some of the plot seemed too much like the first. However this book doesn't disappoint and the plot is different enough from the first book to keep it entertaining. I'd love to see our dear 'fair' godmother get in on some of the adventure and maybe learn a lesson or two in the coming books.

Savannah gets a Godmother and three wishes, so you would think her life just got a whole life better right? Well not exactly. Her boyfriend has just dumped her to date her smarter older sister Jane, and then this high-heeled party-girl fairy shows up with wishes... but Chrissy isn't a Fairy Godmother, she's only fair. She hasn't gotten the best grades in Godmother school and Savannah is supposed to be her extra credit.

When Savannah wishes for a fairy tale-like life, she's sent back to the middle ages to live life as Cinderella and then Snow White. Neither is as glamorous as the stories make them out to be. Then when she wishes for a prince-type to take her to prom, Chrissy sends Tristan, one of Savannah's classmates back in time, only being allowed to return upon becoming a prince. Savannah knows she has to go back and help Tristan... after all it was her messed-up wish that put him there. So Tristan and Savannah team up to find a way to make him a prince. Unfortunately the only way to do so proves to be extremely dangerous... and they both wonder if they will ever make it back to the 21st Century alive.



This book is SO not what I was expecting. I guess I didn't read the blurb very well because I was not expecting Middle Ages. I didn't mind that it went there, but I just wasn't prepared for it. Also I was expecting the Godmother to have a bigger role in the book, and she was pretty nonexistent. I wanted to know more about the fairy-magical world where Chrissy kept going off to. Maybe it was the cover that threw me off because it looks like a pink-haired modern-day fairy... so that's where I thought the book was going to go, more in that direction. I enjoyed seeing all the different fairy tales from a new perspective, that part I loved. And I really liked some of the ways they used modern knowledge and things they had brought back with them to solve ancient-day problems.

I thought it was cute and fun, but it didn't like blow my mind or anything. I've read cuter and funner (yes I know that's not a word, I just like using it). I didn't really much like Savannah either. There was just something about her that didn't click with me. Maybe it just was that she felt very weak to me. Everyone was always talking down to her and I wanted her to stick up for herself, but she never really did. She could never make up her mind who she liked, and the whole Black Night thing she felt was odd to me. Why would she ever feel loyalty or guilt about someone who wanted to burn her tongue out of her mouth? She went back to a horrible time period to help Tristan... her loyalties should obviously be with him. And then she wondered why Tristan didn't fully trust her... ummm duh!!

So I thought it was cute... and if you're into fairy tales and retellings I totally recommend it. I'm not the biggest fan of those things. I always think they are a fun idea, but I rarely see them executed as good as I'm expecting.


Overall: A fun book and a must-read for fairy tale lovers.

This was a very fun book by Rallison. It was smart, unique, and avoided the lure of many YA cliches. I liked the twist in the beginning where you think the main character is someone else. Savannah, through the story, learns the frustrations of being known as less-than-smart, and proves that she is smarter than people think. I was amused by the cameo appearances by some of fairy tales' most famous. The resolution is completely satisfying.
