This second book in Sarah Mlynowski's charming new series puts a fresh spin on the Cinderella story!

Once upon a time my brother and I found a magic mirror.

Tonight the mirror swept us into Cinderella's fairy tale. Now, we are NOT messing this story up. No way. Cinderella is going to marry her prince just like she's supposed to.

Uh-oh.

Cinderella broke her foot and there's massive swelling. The glass slipper won't fit, the prince won't know she's the one for him, and they won't live happily ever after. And it's all our fault!

To save the day we'll need to:
1. Learn how to use a dustpan
2. Stay out of jail
3. Find Cinderella a job
4. And make sure true love finds its way.

We just have to get it all done before the clock strikes twelve and the chance for a happy ending is gone . . . forever!

In the second installment of Sarah Mlynowski's Whatever After series, siblings Abby and Jonah end up in Cinderella's story. After Cinderella breaks her foot, it is up to Abby and Jonah to figure out a way to fix the story and find a way to get themselves back home.

What I loved: I love the concept of the fractured fairy tale. It is so much fun to read a new take on a traditional story. This one is perfect for young readers. Mlynowski is able to weave two very different worlds together in a way that is both entertaining and streamlined. The characters from both worlds are able to work together and teach each other valuable lessons along the way.

This is a fun and enchanting middle grade series that is sure to be hit with young fairy tale fans.
