* First in a new series *
Gilly steals to make things easier for her siblings. Five brothers and sisters often don't have enough to eat. The shoe making business has taken a hit.My Thoughts: I Loved this book and can't wait for more in this series.
When Gilly's caught, for the third time, she's forced to enroll in Fairy Tale Reform School.
The school believes that with a little training, everyone can change. But Gilly doesn't want to change. She only wants to escape the school as quickly as possible. Then she notices something strange is going on - can she help figure it out?
I really love Gilly. She's smart, she has a big heart, and she doesn't take grief from anyone. My heart broke for Gilly and her siblings and I hope she finds a way to make life better for everyone. I want to learn more about the shoes that her father makes. I love that she was able to make friends, especially with Jax.
A few favorite moments:
I loved it when Gilly flew on Pegasus.
I loved reading the Happily Ever After Scrolls
I loved figuring out the identity of the villains.
I quite enjoyed Miri.
I loved the gargoyles coming to life (even if they're not nice).
I liked the prediction from Madame Cleo and watching it come true.
I love that Gilly made her choice and stuck with it after learning the truth. It shows her courage and her sense of doing what's right.
Fun Fact: I FINALLY got to meet Jen Calonita after loving her books for years.
Final Thoughts: A superb start to a new series that's entertaining, fun, and smart. I can't wait to find out what happens next. If you like fairy tales, be sure to snatch this one up.
