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. 

My Review: I have really loved this series so far! I think each book could stand alone, but it's fun to see the way Chrissy evolves. Chrysanthemum (aka Chrissy) is such an interesting take on a fairy godmother. Of course, she's still in training, but the mistakes she makes and the liberties she takes are hilarious. Well, at least they are to the reader. Sadie is a girl who always has bad luck. She earns a fairy godmother when her performance on a top talent show ends badly...and all in front of her celebrity crush.

I really like Sadie and felt bad for her, especially when Chrissy takes those liberties with Sadie's wish and sends her back to the story of The Little Mermaid. I love that story, but the way this was written made me feel very grateful that I can read about it or watch it and not live it. To "fix" the wish, Sadie uses her last wish on something that will surely land her in her own century, but finds herself as the youngest daughter in The Twelve Dancing Princesses. Once again, I love that story, but to live it? That would be brutal! 

I love the way the author sends the reader (and characters) on some great adventures. I spent a lot of time wondering how in the world it would all work out and the little twists and turns were very creative. I would think I would know where the story was going and it would twist again. I also really enjoyed the love angle and the surprises found with that. Chrissy is an interesting character and I love that the story leaves things open for more fun times with her.   

Content: Nothing of note. Clean!
My Rating: 5/5 Stars

About the Author:
Janette RallisonJanette Rallison is old. Don’t ask how old, because it isn’t polite. Let’s just say she’s older than she’d like to be and leave it at that. Janette lives in Chandler, Arizona with her husband, five children and enough cats to classify her as “an eccentric cat lady.” She did not do this on purpose. (The cats, that is; she had the children on purpose.) Every single one of the felines showed up on its own and refuses to leave. Not even the family’s fearless little Westie dog can drive them off. Since Janette has five children and deadlines to write books, she doesn’t have much time left over for hobbies. But since this is the internet and you can’t actually check up to see if anything on this site is true, let’s just say she enjoys dancing, scuba diving, horse back riding and long talks with Orlando Bloom. (Well, I never said he answers back.)
