Today, I reviewing the book:
My Fairly Dangerous Godmother
By Janette Rallison
Strengths: I enjoyed the story. I fell in love with and could relate to the main character, Mercedes. She is funny and realistic. I laughed out loud every time Jason came onto the scene. He was so confused and Janette wrote him so perfectly. I also fell in love with Donovan. I like that she played with fairytales we already knew (although I have never heard of the story The Twelve Dancing Princesses).
Weaknesses: I really didn’t get into the book (where I couldn’t put it down) until the middle of the book. The whole part of her turning into the Little Mermaid seemed to slow the story down and confuse me. I wanted to know Mercedes goal so I could cheer her on but it wasn’t clear until she became a dancing princess.
Overall: I liked it. Once I got to the middle of the book, I really couldn’t put it down. It was a sweet story.
I give it 4 out of 5 pocket watches.
