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.

Good King Wenceslas

This book is BEAUTIFULLY illustrated!

It explains the Christmas song we sing each year, but until now, at least I, never really understood.

What a beautiful way to teach about the giving of Christmastime and the example of one King to his page.

I also LOVED the side notes explaining "St. Stephen's Day" and what a " Page boy" is;

Along with "life in a castle" and "Christmas celebrations in the middle ages."

The book is wonderful in and of itself,

But there is more!!!

You also get a DVD of Jane Seymour telling this story with the Mormon Tabernacle singing the song and amazing dancers performing.

A true treasure book for Christmas!

The Unlikely Gift of Treasure Blume

I REALLY LIKED this book!

This book had me laughing with Treasure and her quirky mannerisms... and of course her spunky grammy... and crazy sweaters...


it also had me...feeling...

Feeling the tenderness of a woman as she just goes about trying to do what she thinks is right...and what she thinks will help at the time...

But somehow everyone she meets dislikes her...is that a curse...or a blessing?

Dennis is one who dislikes her...

He is working as a "lunch lady" to be close to his daughter...the daughter who is in Treasures' first grade classroom...

But as Dennis watches Treasure he comes to know the REAL her...the one who cares about other people more than she cares about what those other people think about her...

Don't miss out on reading this book...it is a TREASURE worth finding!

The Official Hero's Guide for Latter-Day Youth

This book is AMAZING!

Everyday someone is watching you...can be scary...

But with the advice from this book you can be a hero for that someone!

It is the little things we do each day and the habits that we develop that turn us into hero's... or not...

The eight lessons in this book:

* Achieving heroic courage
* Being a heroic example
* Living a life of heroic service
* Learning heroic leadership
* Finding heroic confidence
* Enduring heroically to the end
* Developing heroic strength
* Learning to live by faith

This book was specifically written for the youth...but as a grown woman I learned quite a few things I need to work on :)

WONDERFUL information!  TONS of exceptional stories!

I can't say enough good about this book!

A definite MUST read if you are interested in becoming a better HERO!

Pride and Precipitation

I LOVE books like this...

Enough romance to make you go "aah"....

Without any worries about what you will read.

Plus this book showed how one girl could stay happy even though life wasn't going as planned...I learned a great lesson here...

Breezy has her dream job of being the "weather girl."

She has worked hard to get there and now it is being taken away because she is too much like Pollyanna.

But is that a bad thing?

Breezy tries hard to maintain her "sunny" attitude and pushes forward into an uncertain future.

A cute, fun read!
