by Angela Parkhurst
Genre: YA Fantasy
Release Date: February 10th 2014

Summary from Goodreads:

Once upon a time, seventeen-year-old Norah Hart believed in the lure of fairytales and happily ever afters. That was before she was forced to live in a fairy tale nightmare.

A psychotic, couture-clad, shoe obsessed Princess.
A not-so-charming, alcoholic Prince.
A hot Big Bad Wolf that she absolutely cannot fall for—no matter how well he kisses.

If Norah had known she’d be attending a boarding school for the nut job reincarnations of fairy tale characters, she would have insisted on going to Moscow with her father. But getting out isn’t as easy as she thought. Especially once Norah realizes she, too, is a storybook character. An Unknown. The first one in over one hundred years. Soon Norah learns she has the ability to rewrite the stories, putting everyone’s Happily Ever After in jeopardy.

Some princesses will do whatever it takes to protect their endings. Even if it means betraying the one closest to you.

My Review:

Reimagined fairy tales are all the rage and if you’re looking for something fun, sassy and hysterical, grab this book. I loved the sexy big, bad wolf (alpha male yumminess). Norah takes us on an eye-opening journey through my favorite fairy tales, combining the irreverence of Bridget Jones with Hans Christian Andersen. Cinderella as a Mean Girl was an original twist but I went with it. The school she attends is downright entertaining and while there were parts of the plot that were predictable, I still enjoyed myself.

 

A must-read for anyone who loves fairy tales, romance and pining for their own happily ever after. Fans of Once Upon a Time will swoon over this one.

 

My Rating: 4 stars
