"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.

Not the most fantastically written book, but it is very humorous and somewhat unexpected. A funny, light read.

This was such a cute book! I was laughing out loud from the first sentence and the humor continued throughout the story. It does have its serious moments though which are very important to the characters and plot of the book. This book has a charm to it that I think would appeal to reluctant readers as well as kids just looking for a quirky, quick fairy-tale book. A great bridge book between say the Rainbow Fairies series and the Sisters Grimm series. I do have to say the villain, who is a clown, spooked me just a bit, as someone who doesn't like creepy clowns, but I cheered when the heroine triumphed over him. I will gladly go on the next adventure with Jenny, Anthony, Prince Lamb and Dr. Bradley!

Jenny is an adventurer, recruited by a gnome when she was nine to help magical kingdoms in distress. But adventuring is getting tiring for her; she wants nothing more than to have a normal life. When faced with a terrifying villain, will she run off and attempt to regain her normal life, or stay and help the kingdom in distress?
