Title: Not Your Average Fairytale
Author: Chantele Sedgwick
Published: August 1st, 2012
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Goodreads Summary: 

Armed with wings and a blue wand, being a fairy godmother should be easy ... unless your name is Ash, and you're a dude.

Ash Summerland has it all–good looks, popularity, and the best grades at The Academy of Magical Beings. Ready to complete his last assignment in order to graduate, Ash is confident he will get the apprenticeship he wants. When he opens the letter from the Council, he is shocked to discover he has been assigned to apprentice Lady Shenelle, Keeper of Happy Endings. A.K.A. the head fairy godmother. Ash is forced to grant three wishes to a troubled human girl named Kendall, and ultimately give her a "happy ever after". But Kendall turns out to be more than he bargained for. Still grieving over her father's death, Kendall doesn't want anything to do with him. And worst of all, she doesn't believe in happy endings.

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book so much, it was a fun and light read that I enjoyed every second of.  It had light and fun romance mixed in with a paranormal and magical aspect that melded so well together to great the perfect story. 

One of the most enjoyable aspects of this book was that you got multiple narration through each chapter. With one chapter from the main character of Ash, the fairy godmother and Kendall, his assignment. I really loved getting to read the story from both characters. It's not often that you get to know what both of your characters are thinking about each other, I liked knowing what the guy was thinking because in most YA books, you don't get to see that. 

Ash is getting ready to graduate from The Academy of Magical Beings, to graduate each student has to complete a internship assignment from a specific magical professor. Ash is at the top of his class and he wants to graduate and become a sandman, which has always been his dream. But, when Ash opens his letter for his internship he is completely surprised and disappointed to find out that he is going to be a fairy godmother.  First of all, according to Ash fairy godmothers are not supposed to be guys, and he is not prancing around in tights and fairy wings to graduate from school. His assignment is a human girl named Kendall, his job is to give her a happy ending and grant her three wishes.
Ash was such a total guy and it he really made me laugh and smile throughout the entire book. He was so upset about having to be a fairy godmother because he was a guy and he thought because he was one of the best students in his class that he was above it. His character really learns a lot through Kendall.

 I really loved Kendall, my favorite scenes from the book were between Ash and Kendall.  Kendall was definitely a broken girl. She had just lost her father in a car accident and her whole life changed because of it. Ash entered her life at the perfect time, she needed her three wishes and a happy ending more than anything. 

Overall, this book was such a fun and entertaining read, I loved the plot and was so interested in every aspect of it. The plot was unique, different, and enjoyable. I haven't read anything quite like it before which made me so excited because sometimes in YA books can be the same story with different names. The ending was left open so there could be another book, I don't know if there will be but, if there is I will definitely be reading it!
