Whatever After: Fairest of All
Mirror, mirror, on the basement wall...
Once upon a time, my brother and I were normal kids. The next minute? The mirror in our basement slurped us up and magically transported us inside Snow White's fairy tale.
I know it sounds crazy, but it's true.
But hey — we're heroes! We stopped Snow White from eating the poisoned apple. Hooray! Or not. If Snow White doesn't die, she won't get to meet her prince. And then she won't get her happy ending. Oops.
Now it's up to us to:
- Avoid getting poisoned
- Sneak into a castle
- Fix Snow White's story
- And then, fingers crossed, find our way home.
Praise for Fairest of All
"A magic mirror, a slightly bossy sister and her inquisitive 7-year-old brother captivate in this rollicking remake of a classic fairy tale...The result is an uproariously funny read. The swift pace of the tale and non-stop action combined with Abby’s quick wit will enchant readers from the first page." —Kirkus Reviews
