Not Your Average Fairy Tale by Chantele Sedgwick

Not Your Average Fairy Tale by Chantele Sedgwick Synopsis: 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

Christina's Review: I really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it to other readers. I don't normally read books about fairies and other paranormal creatures but this book wasn't strange or weird. It was a fun and entertaining read. Chantele pulls you quickly into the storyline. The characters are great! They are fun and realistic, minus the magic of course.  Ash is sent to grant Kendall 3 wishes and he thinks it will be quick and easy. . . What would you wish for if you had 3 wishes? Kendall takes her time and the two become friends. They actually have a lot in common. Both Ash and Kendall are dealing with the loss of a parent. Both characters go from being wrapped up in their own grief to helping each other heal. 

The book ends setting it up for a sequel and makes you want to read more!!! I can't wait for the sequel!
