Extraordinary by Adam Selzer

For Jennifer Van Der Berg, life totally and completely sucks. When Eileen Codlin wrote that book about her, that wasn't even close to the truth. Jennifer felt the need to set everyone straight and write the real version of her story. Eileen's story makes Jennifer out to be a fairy princess with a fairy godmother who helps Jen get her prince charming. Wrong! In reality, Jen is just an average girl with purple highlights and a horrible fairy godfather by the name of Gregory Grue. Soon, Jennifer's life starts to get all tangled up into one big knot as  more and more problems start to unfold. Can Jen set everything straight and save those she loves, or will the  bad guys get the final word?
Adam Selzer did an amazing job writing the novel Extraordinary. This story was the perfect mix of everything for fantasy: fairies, vampires, unicorns, romance, and lots and lots of purple! I hope Selzer writes another novel as intricate in details as this one was. While reading Jennifer's story, I felt everything she felt; that is how realistic Selzer's writing was. I recommend this book to ages twelve and above. I recommend this book to ages twelve and above.
