Bargain Ebook: My Very UnFairy Tale Life by Anna Staniszewski


My Very UnFairy Tale Life by Anna Staniszewski is temporarily down to $1.99 in ebook format, usually closer to the paperback price of $6.99. It's been on my alert list, so I snatched it up. And, yes, the price drop is in anticipation of the sequel's release, My Epic Fairy Tale Fail (My Very UnFairy Tale Life), in March.

Book description:

"You know all those stories that claim fairies cry sparkle tears and elves travel by rainbow? They're lies. All lies." Twelve-year-old Jenny has spent the last two years as an adventurer helping magical kingdoms around the universe. But it's a thankless job, leaving her no time for school or friends. She'd almost rather take a math test than rescue yet another magical creature! When Jenny is sent on yet another mission, she has a tough choice to make: quit and have her normal life back, or fulfill her promise and go into a battle she doesn't think she can win.

And some quotes from review sources (this isn't self-published):

"Staniszewski's debut is a speedy and amusing ride that displays a confident, on-the-mark brand of humor, mostly through Jenny's wisecracking narration...the inventive and lighthearted premise will keep readers entertained."-Publisher's Weekly

"A light comic romp...Staniszewski pitches her writing to a middle-school audience in her debut, emphasizing comedy along with non-threatening suspense, and keeps the tone chatty and frothy...[Audiences will] easily will identify with Jenny. Charming."-Kirkus
