Finding your one true love can be a Grimm experience
After her boyfriend dumps her for her older sister, sophomore Savannah Delano wishes she could find a true prince to take her to the prom. Enter Chrissy (Chrysanthemum) Everstar: Savannah's gum-chewing, cell phone carrying, high heel-wearing Fair Godmother. Showing why she's only "Fair" because she's not a very good fairy student Chrissy mistakenly sends Savannah back in time to the Middle Ages, first as Cinderella, then as Snow White. Finally she sends Tristan, a boy in Savannah's class, back instead to turn him into her prom-worthy prince. When Savannah returns to the Middle Ages to save Tristan, they must team up to defeat a troll, a dragon, and the mysterious and undeniably sexy Black Knight. Laughs abound in this clever fairy tale twist from a master of romantic comedy.

About the Author
Janette Rallison was never a perfume sprayer, but she still spent way more time and money at the mall than her parents thought prudent. She learned many important things during her years as a mall connoisseur. For example, even if a guy looks remarkably like a guy from your school, you should really check and make certain before you rush up and throw your arms around him. Also, even if your parents insist they want to see you in that swimsuit before they buy it for you, do not under any circumstance step out of the dressing room. The boy you want to impress will be passing by, as will your high school football team, your English teacher, a tour of seniors snapping photos at that exact moment and capturing your day-glow-white thighs for all their relatives to see in future slideshows. Not that any of these things every personally happened to Janette, but you can check out other embarrassing experiences on her Web site:
Janette has written five books for Walker & Company, including "Fame, Glory, and Other Things on My To Do List." Janette lives in Chandler, Arizona, with her husband and four out of five of their children. (The fifth is at college, not wandering around lost under a clothes rack.)
