The Heroin was shallow. She totally underestimates herself, but her humbleness cn her even more appealing. Morgan must face losing forever the love of her life on her sixteenth birthday.

Or maybe because Morgan is just a rather normal girl and I unfairly compared her to saintly or overly adult teen-heroines. They’ve been best friends and in love with each other their whole lives.

Cam and Pip were just adorable and I was going through all the mixed emotions Morgan was experiencing. The worst part of all was the way faeries were described. She seemed to take her boyfriend for granted, whine about completely unimportant things, care only about the excactnes If I sort through the emotions reading this fairy changeling story has brought up in me, the one that sticks out is sadness.

A little too perfect, but it all comes tumbling down when her boyfriend discovers that he’s actually a fairy and at their upcoming sweet sixteen birthday party he’s supposed to go back and be king in fairy world.

Good gosh, this girl was so shallow. They even share the same birthday and Morgan and Cam have been planning a big sweet sixteen-birthday bash for months.

One difficulty I had in terms of enjoyment is that Balog’s characters just aren’t interesting or compelling. Possibly Cyn Balog could have turned things around if she devoted more of her time to writing the main characters better personality traits. Sometimes I’m a bit leery that fantasy books will be so much fantasy that I will be lost, I need fantasy that is extremely grounded in our own reality and I found that with Fairy Tale.

A Million More Pages: I read this book a while ago, and let’s just say that it was one of the most disappointing books I have read in my entire life yes, because even children picture books are better then this. I have been looking forward to Fairy Tale for a long time. It was a very sweet, nice novel. Hopefully I shall not be disappointed I do not think I will be. If you can imagine a gaggle of self-absorbed girls jabbering away in high-pitched squeal, you’d have a good grasp on the voice.

And yet, Balog’s writing turns a potentially interesting story into a reading chore.

I really liked Fairy Tale. Morgan feels guilty when she begins fantasizing about Pip, reminding herself that she loves Cam and eventually coming to believe that her feelings for Pip are the result of fairy magic.

So this is the second time I have read this book. First, she’s bored, sardonic, ctn better than any one she’s around.

Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog. But it was cute and enjoyable for what it was. I am not entirely saying that Fairy Tale was completely the same as Wondrous Strange.


I found Morgan to be very unlikeable. I wanted to enjoy this novel. Mar 20, Alea rated it it was amazing Shelves:
