This story is a retaling of The Frog Prince with a twist. I really like the whole concept of the story and how Ms. Flinn modernized it. She did a great job of capturing all of the classic story while mixing in some great new drama.

Johnny works lots of hours just to help support him and his mom, but when a princess comes into town with a crazy story asking him for help he is not sure what to do. She throws money at him and the promise of marriage if he helps. Knowing that the money and marriage would help his mother and their situation, he agrees to it, seeking out a prince who has turned into a frog. She gives him magically devices to help him on his journey. But what he finds on this journey is what he least expected.

I love classic tales. So when I received this book I knew I loved it. And loved it I did. Johnny was a hard working man who was desperate for money. Being so young and working so many hours just to help with bills really made me admire him. He didn't like it when his mother worried and was very mature for his age.

The classic tale of the frog prince was a good re-tailing. I enjoyed Johnny;'s adventure in seeking the prince. He ran into all crazy animals that spoke, giants, and bad witches. Accompanying on this journey was his best friend Meg, who wasn't all what she seemed. She too also has secrets up her sleeve and only one that really mattered to Johnny.

The love interest in the book was one I found myself disappointed with. While I was glad that Johnny finally realized who he loved, I was upset at the way that she acted. I felt like she was selfish and shouldn't had thrown it at his face like that. But in the end it all work out, so I was happy with that.

    Not that great.

    The author had a real story here. He could have made this great. Byt near the end, he totally rushed the book. Rather Not.

    This book was the perfect mending of an old fairy tale that we have all forgotten about as we grow older.... into a wonderful, witty tale about a dorky teenage boy who finds his true love. I give it two thumbs up!

    Awesome.

    That's a very smart princess right there. She could be an actress if she wanted to.... and if she were real. I wouldn't have to the extreme of "If you bring my bruzzer I'll marry you.", but that was her call. I would be so ticked if I found out my friend was a witch and she didn't tell me. Then I'd be ok in like, 2 hours. After she bought me a waffle cone. I <3 WAFFLE CONES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! •TS•

    Cloaked Book Review

    Its not much. Just your average book. I mean sure, its got a twist to it, and I must admit, it might interest some readers, but it really doesn't have hook. It doesn't make you want to keep reading

    I really liked this book. I read "Beastly" and "A Kiss in Time" and i loved them too. Johnny was so sweet and strong, a great character! Alex Flinn is a very good author.
