My Very UnFairy Tale Life
By: Anna Staniszewski
Jenny is an Adventurer. She travels to different worlds helping solve their problems. However, the charm of this is loosing it's sparkle. Klarr is her worst bad guy yet. Will she fight to save the land he's taken over, or will she opt for the quiet, mundane life of your average teenager?
This isn't my usual type of book, but I was curious. The plot sounded like it could be really good. I'm glad I read it, because I enjoyed it. It was a great fantasy read that, I think, many tweens enjoy as well.
Jenny has spent the last 3 years of her life going from one different world to another. Whenever there's a problem, she's sent to solve them. But Jenny has grown tired of going from one world to another. She longs for the boring life most kids her age hate: homework, school. She would love to get some sleep, too. When she learns the lengths the Committee has gone to in order to disguise what she's doing, Jenny has reached her limit. An evil sorcerer, dressed as a clown, named Klarr has proven to be her hardest challenge. What better time to call it a day? But can she walk away? Is the life she misses everything she thinks it is?
I loved the way Anna Staniszewski wrote My Very Unfairy Tale Life. The humorous way jenny sees things was a joy to read. She got things started off right away and kept them moving until the end. I loved the sidekick character, Anythony. His sarcastic nature and food munching was funny. Jenny and Anthony were a cute pair to read about. I also loved Dr. Bradley. I would love to have someone like him in my life.
This book was a pleasant read that I strongly recommend. My bookshelf has a spot waiting for it.
