Tricked (Fairy Tale Reform School)
Gilly is back at home after earning her release from Fairy Tale Reform School, but she feels listless and out of place. She’s attending a trade school to follow in her father’s footsteps as a shoe cobbler, but she can’t seem to muster any enthusiasm for her career path. When her sister gets into trouble and is taken to FTRS, Gilly knows she needs to help get Anna out, especially with Rumpelstiltskin now in charge! She and fellow FTRS graduate Jax, the Royal brother to Rapunzel, end up back where they started, but with Mr. Stiltskin calling the shots, it seems that the school is making more villains than heroes. This third installment of FTRS brings back many favorite fairy tales and gives them a fresh twist for a new generation of readers. Gilly is relatable, as she struggles with life choices and choosing to be who she wants to be or what her parents expect – that’s a trick all on its own. Like many fairy tales and fables, the moral comes through clear without being preachy, and readers will enjoy the various cast of characters – pirate, royal, peasant, mermaid, and more – making this a treat to read.
