Book Announcement: Diary of a Teenage Fairy GodMother

Looking for a fun YA read along the lines of Meg Cabot's Avalon High with some high school high-jinks?  Then, look no further than: the Diary of a Teenage Fairy Godmother. It is a new contemporary fantasy from a fabulous writer I know, Kathleen Baldwin, and her writing partner Andrea Sisco.

Overview:
A Fairy Godmother is not some pixie in a pink tutu. She’s a guardian and a warrior. Lilliana Skye is sent undercover to a Texas high school to save one of Cinderella’s troubled descendants, but everything goes wrong.
Jessica Harrison hates Lilliana. She doesn’t believe in magic or happily-ever-afters. Jess is tough, angry, and so intelligent it’s scary. If she ever did see a mythical fairy she would probably stomp it into oblivion with her army boots. Matters go from bad to worse when Jess’s older brother meets Lilliana and falls hard for the new girl. And Lilliana can’t keep her wayward heart in check. Jake is, well, just plain dangerous.
Falling in love with a human changes everything.



My take: Diary of a Teenage Fairy Godmother is a super-cute read. I loved the way the authors tied in Cinderella and the Fairy Godmother story you already know and brought it forward into today's time. There was also a funny Merlin reference! But mainly the story centers around the combat-boot wearing "cinderella" trying to break up the romance between her "barbie-clone" fairy godmother and cinderella's "prince charming" brother. The high-jinks surrounding this plot made me laugh out loud!
