Book Description

1 Aug 2012
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. but 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- aka 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, she doesn't want anything to do with Ash. And worst of all, she doesn't believe in happy endings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!! 16 Oct 2012
By Michelle@Book Briefs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is so flippin' cute! I mean, just look at the cover! It's a guy fairy godmother. With wings. How can you not love that? Don't ask me, because I have no idea. Plus both of the main characters are sarcastic. I love me some sarcasm.

Ash is top of his class and he wants to be a sandman when he grows up. So he expects it to be a shoe in for him. Imagine his surprise and anger when he didn't get assigned to the sandman for his apprenticeship, but rather he was put on fairy godmother duty. It totally cracked me up. He even got wings. Just about the worst thing to happen to a 17 year old guy. He gets assigned to Kendall, a girl almost as sarcastic and stubborn as him. Kendall was in a car accident a couple months ago and she lost her father. A lot of this book was watching her struggle with her pain. I thought her progression was very real and natural. And Ash was just so awesome through it all. You could really tell how Kendall kind of snuck up on him and before he knew it, he liked her. I thought it was beyond adorable.

There are still a lot of questions I have for the second book. I did not see the "villain" coming at all. It totally shocked me, but know that the cat is out of the bag- I need to know what is going to happen next. Book 2 is going to be so good! My only complaint about Not Your Average Fairy Tale is that it seemed too short. I flew through it in one sitting. I wanted more, more, more! But that is just my greed. The writing and the pacing are great, and the characters were sarcastic masterpieces. Not Your Average Fairy Tale took me by surprise and I can't stop smiling just thinking about it.

*Disclaimer- I got a copy of this book for free in exchange for my honest review. I did not receive any compensation for my review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Fun Fun! 2 Aug 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Ash Summerland is pumped! Soon he'll be graduating at the top of his class after all his hard work at the academy, he's finally going to get his just reward by earning himself the dream apprentice job he's always wanted. So when he opens his golden letter from The Magical Being Academy and sees that he's working for Lady Shenelle he's thinking that there has to be some mistake or quite possibly a joke. A Fairy Godmother? But...he's a dude! There has never been a male fairy godmother in the history of the academy, so...why now?
Frustrated and a very pissed off Ash tries to figure out what's going on, but the council has all decided that this experience will be good for him and he may just learn something from it. He just has to hang on long enough to complete one assignment. Grant three wishes to a human girl and he'll be able to graduate and move on to better positions. So what happens when his assignment proves to be most difficult and doesn't even believe in happy endings? Or even worse, what happens when he actually starts to care about her?

Ha!! What a fun fun story!! Not Your Average Fairy Tale really took me by surprise. This was such an entertaining and creative concept that put a brilliant spin to some of my favorite elements. Magic and fairy tale beings. As soon as I read the blurb for this book, I knew that I wanted to read it, I just didn't think I'd have this much fun!
Magic, mystery, romance, colorful characters and a wicked twist in the end, this book has Disney written all over it! I could totally see this on the big screen. Kudos to Chantele Sedgwick's writing! It's smooth, confident and consuming. I was constantly and instantly entertained from minute one!

I really adored every single one of these characters. Even the bad dudes. Each of them played their roles fantastically, bringing in so much thrill, surprises and laughter.
Poor poor Ash, he really took the news hard when he found out that he was going to be ~gasp~ a fairy godmother. It's a pride thing, a male thing, a 'I'm not wearing no dame tights and tu-tu' thing. His pouting ways were quite adorable and hilarious and it was amazingly fun to watch him squirm his way through this assignment. To add insult (girly wings and a blue wand) to injury, Ash also learns that his class rival, Dax got the apprentice position that he was aiming for and makes sure to rub it in his face at any given hour.
All Ash wants to do is get this stupid assignment done and over with and move on, but when Kendall starts to get under his skin, making him question everything that he's ever wanted, we see a new side to Ash that readers will cheer for!
I really liked Kendall, she's been having a hard time every since she lost her father in an accident, leaving her alive but badly scarred. She feels responsible and blames herself for what happened. She's lost the will to feel normal or be normal. So it's not really a surprise when she fist meets Ash and thinks he's some nut job. I mean, who would believe that this gorgeous guy is a fairy godmother who could grant her three wishes. But once she finally does believe it's pretty funny to see these two banter their way to a growing friendship. She can totally handle her own and has a mean arm to prove it.
Also, a big shout out to Sam and Ellie, they were two of my favorite characters besides Ash and Kendall.

The story line has a little bit of everything. Fun filled magic, a sweet sweet romance that's perfect in the way true love and fairy tales were meant to be, secrets waiting to be revealed, betrayal and revenge and an evil sinister plot taking it's time to fester before it strikes.

Overall, I absolutely had a blast with this book. It's warm and sweet and really quite precious. I can't wait to buy myself a copy to add to my collection! I'm also guessing by the ending that we're getting more, which would be amazing! I can't wait to see what happens to Ash and Kendall next!!

"Not Your Average Fairytale" is a cute story with an interesting plot but at times I felt that the idea wasn't fully developed. I was hoping for a bit more but I enjoyed reading it anyways
