"Sew It's A Quest" Review
About the Book
Robin and Robert are royal twins. They are the only two to have received a Fairy Godmother gift in nearly a century, an amazing honor. Soon it was clear that their gifts had been switched and a search began to find the Fairy Godmother to right the mistake. When she is finally sighted by a knight, the family learns that the pair must find her for themselves and they only have until their 18th birthday ... only 4 months away. Will they be able to find her in time?
Sew It's a Quest took me on a wild ride through many fairy tale retelling with hilarious twists. I must say I enjoyed it.
I loved each and every one of the character's voices. Robin is headstrong and says whatever she thinks. Robert is more reserved and doesn't talk a lot. Rosamond speaks in an archaic, dreamlike manner. Doranna mixes up words (though this does get distracting at times).
The plot. Well, the plot is fantastic..yet surprisingly simple. It revolves around Robin and Robert trying to get their gifts switched. Just like any quest, things happen along the way. This book Also has many fairy tales in one.
There is one thing I didn't like about it, however. (Warning, this next part has some spoilers.) I didn't like how Robin and Eric's relationship unfolds. I like them together, but I think their relationship growth should have taken longer. To me it seemed like they hated one another, spent a couple of days together playing chess, and then decided to get married. (End spoilers.)
Overall, I enjoyed this book. I do recommend it!
