Flunked (Fairy Tale Reform School) Reviews
I had to read this book for a course in grad school, or rather I chose it to read for the course Trade Book review, and I have to admit, I really enjoyed it. More description of the surroundings and people would have been nice, but the story really propels things forward. Poor Gilly, immoral as they get, but for the "right" reasons, gets caught stealing and is sent to Fairy Tale Reform School which is run by the wicked step-mother of Cinderella. In the Kingdom of Enchantasia, this school is for young criminals who have been caught three times and Gilly gets caught three times. She just wanted to give her sister a nice birthday present, but she pays for it. The writing is decent. Nit-picky things like "she nodded her head" sometimes threw me off, but otherwise, I have to say I was pleased with the outcome of the book. I look forward to reading the next in the series when it comes out and follow Gilly and Jax through more of their adventures.
This is a fun read packed with a little bit of snarkiness, a good dose of mischief, danger, secret agendas, attitude, magic, quirkiness and tons of references to popular fairy tales along the way. In other words, it a book with punch.
Among so many fairy tale retellings, this looked like it would be a fresh new take. The idea was fun - reformed villains saving the next generation of troublemakers from turning evil. Yet, I don't feel it fully reached the potential it started with.
I liked everything about this book the thought of all the Baddies from the fairy tales we all know and love teaching and reforming bad kids? Who knows what would happen. I love the character of Gilly she's fun and a quick thinker and she does care about her friends. A true Thief she's always analyzing and thinking. I was often laughing at some of the things that she did. The sister of Professor Harlow AKA Evil Queen was the ultimate bully. Good thing bullies can't cast spells in real life! All the characters are very memorable and well written. Some are lovable While others are a little grating on the nerves (bullies). If you like fantasy and fairy tales definitely pick this book up.
An Excellent book that puts fairy tale folk in places and situations I would have never imagined them to find themselves a part of. Fairy Tale reform school? What a concept. This book outlines what happens on the other side of the tracks in fairy tale land and the adventures that follow. One of the problem children eventually saves the princess to become the hero of the story. I found this to be a fun book that let my mind wander along with the story line and enjoy the flow. Some parts are predictable, but others are not, so there is a pretty good balance that keeps your brain on its toes, so to speak. As fairy tale stories go, this is a totally unique concept that I enjoyed very much.
Flunked takes all the joy and innocent bliss of nursery rhymes and fairy tales, adds new and fun characters (tweens will LOVE Gilly, Kayla, Ollie, and Jax) and enjoy a delightful read. There are some parallels to other Tween series that are wildly popular (this teacher would be equal to this professor) but the story is beautifully paced, wonderfully detailed, and just flat out a fun read. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series!
