Winging it by Lisa Gail Green is book one in the Destiny Rules series. I really enjoyed this story. I always like reading YA books where the main character is a boy. Zach is on a journey to find out who he is and where he fits in. This book is very well written. I can’t wait to read book two of this series.
Winging It by Lisa Gail Green is the first book in the Destiny Rules series. This is a YA with the main character being Zach. He has just turned 16 and discovers his mom is a fairy godmother and he is fae as well. The story is told from his point of view which I enjoyed. He is funny and snarky at times. Even with the fae bombshell, there is even more for Zach to adjust to and be challenged by.
This is a fun start to a new series. I enjoyed the story and the characters. The story has a different premise and I like that Zach is not a whiny teen. He is a good person and rises to the new adventures in his life. I look forward to reading more from this series in the future.

Winging It is the first book in the Destiny Rules series by Lisa Gail Green. It is a young adult fantasy novel which is a genre that I’m not at all familiar with. I had never read any of this author’s work before but I liked the look of the blurb and decided to give it a go. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised as I enjoyed it more than I expected to.
Zach Slater is 16 years old when he discovers that he and his mother are both ‘fairy godmothers’. His mum has been attacked and he must complete his assignments or they will both be grounded (lose their wings, wands etc).
The book is really funny, as Zach comes to terms with his new powers and the way that others now act around him – his fairy charm means that suddenly becomes very popular and girls start to take much more notice of him, with some hilarious results. To make matters worse, one of his assignments means that he now has to work closely with Jenna, who he has had a massive crush on for years.
It has to be said that there is a really good storyline running throughout the book as Zach tries to work out who the ‘good guys’ and ‘bad guys’ are. The storyline is really intriguing and you will want to keep reading to see how it all pans out. Will Zach manage to complete his mother’s assignments in time? I recommend that you give this book a try and find out for yourselves.
Winging It ( Destiny Rules Series Book 1) by Lisa Gail Green. This is a Coming of Age fantasy book. Its the story of 16 year old Zach who finds out his mom is a fairy godmother. That’s crazy enough but add the fact he’s one too, its all a little mind blowing. When Zach’s mom gets hurt he has to take over and her assignments or they will both be grounded ie: no wands, no position, no wings. This story if full of adventure along with the typical crushes and emotions that go along with being a teen. When his crush turns out to be his Fairy trainer, he’s mortified. This story is about a teen having to grow up, follow rules and realize that people’s lives are at stake. Its a fun, young adult read with lots of twists and turns.
Winging It was such a wonderful and entertaining read – I absolutely loved every minute of it! The author had created a relay magical feel to the story and I loved her world building. Her writing style was very creative and at times it felt like I was watching what I was reading. The pace of the story was really good, fast enough that I didn’t get bored but not too fast that it felt rushed. I thought that Zach was a great character, he felt really relatable and typical for his age! It did give the story this realistic feel at times with how the author had thought and developed Zach as a character.
I can see this story being enjoyed by both YA and other readers alike – I think there is something for everybody and it is a story that I highly recommend! I am really looking forward to reading the next book in the series!
Winging It- Lisa Gail Green
Winging It by Lisa Gail Green is a phenomenal YA fantasy read! It’s my first book by this author but it certainly won’t be my last! This is the first book in the Destiny Rules series, a truly one of a kind read. It’s action-packed, intriguing, addicting, detailed and absolutely hilarious.
Zach’s inner ramblings had me laughing out lout and fully enjoying this storyline. I was hooked from the first chapter and I couldn’t bring myself to put it down and I ended up reading it in one sitting. I loved everything about this book, the seamless flow of the story, the connectable characters, the details, the original storyline, basically I loved everything about it!
I cannot wait to read more from this author and would absolutely recommend this book to anyone looking for their next fantasy read!
Winging It (Destiny Rules Series Book 1) by Lisa Gail Green
I don’t usually read books with a male main character. I much prefer the strong female leads. I was pleasantly surprised with this novel. It was really fun to read. It is a light hearted fantasy story involving fairies, magic and adventure. It has action, humour and suspense. There was romance as well but seeing as the characters are mainly teenagers, it was filled with raging hormones and adolescent angst.
Zach finds out his mother is a fairy godmother and kind of freaks out when he realizes he’s a fairy as well. With his mother injured, he will need to finish her assignments before the full moon or they are both grounded. The next week of his life is thrown into total chaos with Zach continuously breaking the rules, getting drugged and fighting for his life. Who knew being a fairy godmother was so dangerous?
I ended up really liking Zach. He was an awkward sixteen year old who would constantly fumble around the girl he liked. He was caring and stood up for what he believed in. I enjoyed watching his confidence build by the end of the novel. The characters are great and likeable and the story is well written. This is a fantastic YA fantasy book. I’m looking forward to reading part two in the series.

Winging It (Destiny Rules Series Book 1) Lisa Gail Green was a fast moving hooking read, that left me wanting more.
Wow, like wow, I am beyond impressed with this fresh, unique, original read that I can’t even progress right now. I don’t normally read YA books with a male MC, I’m glade I took that change because I would have missed out on probably of the best reads of the year so far. Now true there are some typical YA cliché and tropes, but they were done in a way that wasn’t over powering or annoying. It was weird, because I found myself enjoying the story more with those nods. The plot was on point, witty and fun, like you can sense the danger and the urgency, but with Zach voicing the story, it had this snarky tone that just draws you in and hooks you. I loved pretty much everything about this book, and the twists and turns, man, this book keeps you on your toes.
Overall if you haven’t guessed, this book gets my super high recommendation and my golden stamp of approval. Trust me, you need this book in your life.

This YA fantasy was beautifully written. The author does a wonderful job telling the tale in a way that you feel like you personally know the characters. Our main character, Zach, is a normal teen and has normal problems. Until one day he finds out that there are even bigger things for him to face. I love the universe the author has created with these characters. Everything felt tangible and relatable. Just a fun fantasy read with a fairy tale twist. Loved it.
