For years, Jenny has been an adventurer. With the help of her somewhat helpful gnome guide, Jenny has been traveling from world to world, helping to find the lost, rescue the stupid, and solve unsolvable problems.
But after one too many adventures that leave her scarred physically and emotionally, Jenny has had enough. It's quitting time. All she really wants is homework and some friends.
Unfortunately, the adventuring world needs her more than ever. Can she really have a normal life in the human world? Is normal for her different than everyone else's normal?
Final thoughts: Blah. This was boring and dull. There were a few moments when it looked like something truly sinister was happening, but those ideas were ignored and the story moved in different directions. Jenny's one great skill is cheesy cliches. Her idea of "crisis mode" seems ridiculous. And does anyone really think she'd be able to convince an entire school that she, at 12, would be directing a movie with no cameras around and a giant monster flying in? Really? It may be cutesy to some, but it was really just annoying to me. Finally, there was nothing "fairy tale" about it. Yes, there were gnomes and unicorns, and talking sheep, but nothing that was reminiscent of a fairy tale anywhere. The title just does not fit.
