Annotation: Savannah has everything she's always wished for-a boyfriend, popularity, clothes, and a smart older sister. Until, her boyfriend dumps her for her older sister, and Savannah faces being set up by her sister and ex-boyfriend. Just when she thought things couldn't get worse they do-her FAIR godmother arrives.
Recommend: Yes
Convince us to read the book: This book shows that true love-as cheesy as it sounds-can happen anywhere with the person you'd least expect. And that love comes in all different shapes and sizes. This book showed that you can learn something from school, when you'd least expect it and that you really care for those people around you.
Compelling Aspect of the Book: How the characters transformed during the book. Each character evolved in some way because of this adventure and it was shown. I loved how we got to see the struggles the characters had to face living in the middle-ages and adapting to it- I felt like I was right with them!
Did the cover tempt you and/or reflect the contents of the book: The cover did tempt me to pick up the book, but not to read it. It looks interesting and all but seems (from the cover at least) for a younger audience. But it did reflect the contents of the book, so that was a plus but not exactly- Chrissy (the fair godmother) never was described wearing this outfit, but that's just a small detail.
