Book Description
At 900 years old, Nissa is finally ready to follow her mother's path and become the best Fairy Godmother she can. She’s not thrilled when her first assignment turns out to be a teenage human girl with self-esteem issues, but she knows she has to start somewhere. Her assignment has dealt with bullies since her freshman year and they haven’t let up. If Nissa can’t help her regain her self-confidence her future is bleak.

To complicate matters Nissa experiences all the signs that she's met the being fated for her. This impossibility distracts her from her purpose. After all, fairies and humans aren't meant for each other. How can her heart believe otherwise? Can Nissa successfully complete her first assignment as a Fairy Godmother? Will the fates allow Nissa and Levi to be together? And even if they do, will Levi believe Nissa once she reveals the truth?

My Review

5 of 5 Fairy Godmothers

First I want to say that I had the opportunity to read Nissa early on. It took me by surprise because I had just finished Bethany's Friends series and I was blown away with that series. So when I found out Nissa was about Fairies I said wow what a change from her usual writing but I will give it a go and I am so so glad I did. Bethany has this way of writing things that will cling to your heart and stay with you long after you have read it. She has these incredible messages hidden in every story that jumps out at you when you least expect it. With Nissa this is a story about finding ones self, bullying, and love. Bullying is such a controversial subject when someone writes about it but Bethany did a great job of giving a character that learns to stand up for herself in the end against these bullies.

Nissa for over 900 years has wanted to be a good Fairy Godmother. She will finally get her first assignment and when she does she is not sure she can do it because she will have to go live as a teenage human. HOLY COW who wants that right? Well if Nissa wants to be the best fairy she will have to help out Vicky who is being bullied and has been for a long time. As if things could not get any worse for Nissa while she is trying to help out Vicky she feels her soul mate is close and when she sees Levi she is struck because he is her soul mate with one problem. He is human.

As Nissa navigates through helping Vicky with bullying and teaching her to stand up for herself she is struggling with her love for Levi. Once a fairy finds their soul mate they are instantly attracted to one another and need to be near each other. But Nissa needs to concentrate on her assignment. Will she be able to help Vicky out? Will Vicky stand up to these bullies? What will Nissa and Levi do? Will Levi want to be with her once he finds out what she is? This is such a heart warming book and a must read for everyone! I loved the ending because it was very different from what I thought would happen in a very good way.
