Whatever After #1: Fairest of All—Book Review
Whatever After #1: Fairest of All is the first in a new series for middle graders from the popular young adult author, Sarah Mlynowski. Easy to read and engaging, tween girls will zip through this fun modern-day spin on an old fairy tale. Abby is a relatable narrator, and her quick wit and sense of humor make her immensely likable. Completely wholesome, this book would make for a fun read-aloud. The story is action-packed and there is some "bad guy" fighting, but it is not scary. Fairest of All will be a crowd-pleaser, likely to be enjoyed by most tween girls, even those who are reluctant readers. >Book trailer from YouTube:
