Full of regret, Cinderella’s wicked stepmother, Flora, has founded the Fairy Tale Reform School with the mission of turning the wicked and criminally mischievous into upstanding members of Enchantasia.

Impish, sassy 12-year-old Gilly has a history of petty theft and she’s not too sorry about it. When she lifts a hair clip, she gets tossed in reform school-for at least three months. But when she meets fellow students Jax and Kayla, she learns there’s more to this school than its sweet mission. There’s a battle brewing and she starts to wonder: can a villian really change?

I am so not a fairy tale person that I usually stay away from all the retellings. This middle grade book sounds so good that I’m going to make an exception. I love the idea of the reform school!




  1. This does sound good! My daughter loves this kind of stuff too, think we’d like to share it 😀

  2. Great pick! I read this one last week and I was blown away by how awesome it was. It’s definitely a book I’d recommend!
