After her boyfriend dumps her for her older sister, sophomore Savannah wishes she could find a true prince to take her to the prom.

Despite a few wish-granting mishaps, Savannah's fairy-tale ending might not be as far off as she imagined.

Janette Rallison has been writing since she was six years old, although the quality of her work has improved substantially since then. She is the author of five books, including All's Fair in Love, War, and High School. She lives in Chandler, Arizona, with her husband, Guy, and their five children.
In her latest effort, Rallison returns to themes of sibling rivalry and romance, familiar to readers of Revenge of the Cheerleaders (2007). Here, though, she adds fractured-fairy-tale magic to the breezy plot. Sixteen-year-old Savannah is devastated when her boyfriend dumps her for her studious older sister, and she dreams that her life will take a fairy-tale turn, complete with a handsome prince, a ball, and a happy ending. Her wishes bring the astonishing arrival of Chrissy, an aspiring fairy godmother. Still in training and not quite in command of her magical abilities, Chrissy sends Savannah through a chain of otherworldly mishaps, including visits to Cinderella and Snow White’s stories and finally to the Middle Ages, where Savannah defeats a cast of magical creatures and discovers that regular guys are sometimes preferable to princes. Memos from Chrissy and her professors alternate with Savannah’s often hilarious narrative. The irreverent references to familiar tales, romantic twists, and frequent comedic asides will delight fans of light fantasy, as will the likable characters, who move beyond stereotype. Grades 6-9. --Gillian Engberg
