Reviews: Flunked and Charmed

Author: Jen Calonita
Series: Fairy Tale Reform School, Book 1
Release date: March 3, 2015

Stars: 5 of 5

In book one, Gilly is a thief and that's how she finds herself at Fairy Tale Reform School in the first place. She was caught red-handed for stealing a bag of fresh rolls and for lifting a hair clip for her home. 

At the Fairy Tale Reform School, Gilly makes a few new friends: a fairy named Kyla; and a mysterious boy named Jax. Together they are hopping to find and stop a witch.

My thoughts on Book 1: I really enjoyed the book. I would recommend this book to other people who enjoy different twists to fairy tales.

In book two, there is a new teacher who shows up to take the place of the former step-mother of Snow White. 

It takes a thief to catch a spy, and Enchantasia's pickpocket wants to stay locked up at Fairy Tale Reform School. Gilly and her friends may have defeated the Evil Queen and become the heroes, but the battle for Enchantasia has just begun. 

In the end, after going home she misses the Fairy Tale Reform School and is willing to do anything to get back in. 

My thoughts on Book 2: I really liked how we got to know about the evil step-parents even after they were banished from their kingdoms. Usually we only get to know that they were banished at the end of a story. We also get to learn all about how Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Snow White actually really appreciate their step-parents. 

The reason that I decided to give both of these books 5 gold stars is because I have always been interested in fairy tale books. These were amazing. I NEED MORE TWISTED FAIRY TALES!!
