2011 Preview- My Unfair Godmother by Janette Rallison
"Tansy Miller has always felt that her divorced father has never had enough time for her. But mistakenly getting caught on the wrong side of the law wasn' texactly how she wanted to get his attention. Enter Chrysanthemum "Chrissy" Everstar, Tansy's fairy in shining, er, high heels. Chrissy is only a fair godmother, of course, so Tansy's three wishes don't exactly go according to plan. And if bringing Robin Hood to the twenty-first century isn't bad enough for Tansy, being transported back to the Middle Ages to deal with Rumpelstiltskin certainly is. She'll need the help of her blended family, her wits, and especially the cute police chief 's son to stop the gold-spinning story from spinning wildly out of control."- summary from Amazon
I reviewed the previous book My Fair Godmother a few weeks ago. This book follows the same formula- Chrissy, the Fair Godmother, gets assigned a teen charge and messes things up and the teen has to figure things out and make it out of the fairy tale alive. But stakes are raised and there's enough twists and turns to make the story really interesting; plus, new fairy tales are utilized. It's a fun book, though the whole moral thing is a bit heavy-handed.
This book will be released April 12, 2011 as a hardcover.
