My Very Unfairy Tale Life

By Anna Staniszewski
Rating: 3 3/4 stars

Jenny is no ordinary girl.  At the age of 9 she was approached to become an adventurer--someone brought into magical worlds to help save the day.  With Anthony, her gnome-guide, Jenny had been adventuring non-stop for 3 years, so much so, that the rest of her life was barely remembered.  Her old best friends acted like she was a stranger and she couldn't remember the last time a math test wasn't taken by magical means.  Jenny's parents had gone missing years ago, and her aunt was more interested in animals.  But finally, Jenny has had enough.  She quits adventuring...only to be persuaded to go on one last quest.  There she meets the most terrifying of villains--and he defeats her.  Jenny swears to never go back...but when faced with the normal life she's been missing, will she be happy?
