Summary:After her boyfriend dumps her for her older sister, sophomore Savannah Delano wishes she could find a true prince to take her to the prom. Enter Chrissy (Chrysanthemum) Everstar: Savannah’s gum-chewing, cell phone–carrying, high heel-wearing Fair Godmother. Showing why she’s only Fair—because she’s not a very good fairy student—Chrissy mistakenly sends Savannah back in time to the Middle Ages, first as Cinderella, then as Snow White. Finally she sends Tristan, a boy in Savannah’s class, back instead to turn him into her prom-worthy prince. When Savannah returns to the Middle Ages to save Tristan, they must team up to defeat a troll, a dragon, and the mysterious and undeniably sexy Black Knight.

Review: This book was cute. I originally picked it up because I saw it on Goodreads and I really liked the cover (I don't care what anyone says I choose books by their covers). I like reading modern twists on fairy tales and this one was chock full of that, it had Cinderella, Snow White, and a couple of references to other takes like Rumplestilskin. It was a quick and easy read, which is nice for an in between books kind of read. Although I probably wouldn't recommend it I also wouldn't dissuade anyone from reading it, because it really was a cute book. There's nothing bad I could say about it. There isn't a sequel to the book and I'm not sure if it's the same characters or a totally new cast but i'll most likely read it either way. There was a bit of mystery in the book, and even though I had it figured out and solved before the characters did it was fun to see them trying to figure it out and the process it took for them. All in all I probably wouldn't recommend the book, it was okay, but I wouldn't tell anyone not to read it either.
