Why did I pick this book: I participated in the blog tour hosted by Xpresso Book Tours. (I received a copy of this book for review purposes.)
Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. It was a sweet read that left me smiling.
Nissa is indeed a contemporary fairy tale. It is sweet, romantic, and has the reader hoping for a happily ever after at the end.
Nissa was a nice girl for a 900 year old fairy. She wanted to be a fairy godmother to take after her mother. She trained hard and was looking forward to her first solo assignment. As with any newbie, Nissa wanted a challenging, difficult first assignment and found herself rather disappointed in *only* having to help a high school senior who was being picked on relentlessly. However, the Fates seem to know better as to why she received this particular assignment.
Along with Nissa, the rest of the characters were so likeable. Vicky was a great girl who just needed someone to give her that push to stand up for herself. She wasn’t treated well at school but her strength to let it go and to eventually do something about it was admirable. Levi, Vicky’s older brother, is a chivalrous young man who cares deeply about his little sister and the environment. I even liked Jackson, Vicky’s old friend from grade school.
Would I recommend it: I would recommend this book to any YA, fairytale fan. This book would also be suitable for younger YA readers as well.
Will I read it again: I will not.
About the book: At 900 years old, Nissa is finally ready to follow her mother’s path and become the best Fairy Godmother she can. She’s not thrilled when her first assignment turns out to be a teenage human girl with self-esteem issues, but she knows she has to start somewhere. Her assignment has dealt with bullies since her freshman year and they haven’t let up. If Nissa can’t help her regain her self-confidence her future is bleak.
To complicate matters Nissa experiences all the signs that she’s met the being fated for her. This impossibility distracts her from her purpose. After all, fairies and humans aren’t meant for each other. How can her heart believe otherwise? Can Nissa successfully complete her first assignment as a Fairy Godmother? Will the fates allow Nissa and Levi to be together? And even if they do, will Levi believe Nissa once she reveals the truth?
