If you have read any of the previous books in this series, you have an idea of what this book is like. It's a mishmash of fairy tales- The Little Mermaid and The Twelve Dancing Princesses in this one. Then you have a character (or characters) thrown into these fairy tales by a fairy godmother in training, Chrysanthemum Everstar (Chrissy). She has a tendency to really mess things up and this time is no different.
Sadie is the girl usually on the outside looking in. She is shy and maybe a bit of a loner. She loves music and dreams of a career in singing. Sadie decides to try out for a talent TV show and bombs her audition big time. Because it is so pathetic, a fairy godmother is sent to her as part of an outreach program. Poor Sadie thinks she is making her dreams come true with her wishes, but no. Instead, something goes horribly wrong and she becomes the little mermaid.
This book is fun. It is light hearted and humorous. You really can't help but smile through so much of it. It is perfectly clean and appropriate for tweens on up. You don't have to read the previous books to understand this one, it can stand alone. However, you will have a better understanding of Chrissy if you start at the beginning of the series.
My thanks to the author for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
