My Fair Godmother by Janette Rallison
Savannah is in need of a fairy godmother because her boyfriend left her for her sister, but she gets assigned a fair godmother, Chrissy, instead. Chrissy is only a fair godmother because she's not very good at being a godmother. This, it turns out, means Savannah gets dumped into the Middle Ages.
I read this as one of my recharges between other massive books, so I didn't really expect it to do much besides be fluffy and brainless. It turned out to be really funny. Despite the fact that this has some aspects of a fairy tale retelling, it definitely took off in a completely different tangent than other such books.
The charm of this book is really how irreverent it is with the fairy tales and how it makes fun of some of the shallowness of being a teen without coming off as preachy. There is some romance worked in which I actually enjoyed, but this is definitely not one of those teen books which are hot and heavy.
I am really looking forward to the next book, which is coming out in April. This was a lot of fun, and YOU, yes I'm talking to you there, should read it ^.^
