    Great!!!!!!!!!!!

    Amazing book! If you like Rick Riordan's fastpaced, realistic teen humor than you will like this book as Bach' s style has some of the same aspects. It's a great book and I'd recommend it for preteens. It gets pretty epicly AWESOME! Can't wait for next one to come out! Puts a new and awesome twist on fairytales, but in a comical, adventurous way sure to delight kids, tweens, and even some early teens. Youll be hooked! Really! READ THIS BOOK! IT IS AWESOME!

    Great story for boys and girls!

    Rory Landon wasn’t sure if she understood the Ever After School (EAS) program. Everything is weird there. Rory didn’t understand why everything there is related to fairy tales. She soon makes friends with Lena (AKA Jacqueline), a girl her age and Lena helps Rory around EAS. Rory is amazed to learn that everyone there is a character from a fairy tale, including herself! Every kids at EAS eventually gets matched up with a “Tale”. When you are matched with a Tale, you have to go and live it out. The Tales can be dangerous, or really nice. It takes a while, but Rory really starts to enjoy life at EAS. When Lena is matched with her Tale, Jack… err… Jacqueline and the bean stalk (a Tale that can get pretty dangerous), she picks Rory and a boy named Chase to go with her. Rory thinks the Tale may be a GIANT disaster! Will the friends make it through?

    This was a really exciting and adventurous book! I loved the uniqueness! The idea of the students all being characters in fairy tales is great! I really enjoyed Ms. Bach’s writing style. She mixes a lot of humor and sarcasm in the story. I think the cover is cool. I like the colors and how it is laid out. Rory was a great main character, she makes a great heroine. I am adding her to The Awesome List of Awesome Heroines! She had a great personality and I think girls will like having an adventure story with a girl hero. Boys will also like her because she’s cool I recommend this book to kids 9+.

    Cool

    Exciting, suspensful, and magical this book deserves 5 stars and the genre title: Adventure Fantasy

    After Rory Landon visits a after school care and witnesses a dragon killing, she learns that fairy tales are real. At Ever After school, the kids each star in a different fairy tale or are a companion on the quest. When Rory's best friend gets her tale, Rory and a boy named Chase go on a wild adventure.

    The first book in the Ever Afters series shows that many more great books are on their way! Bkwrm

    RORY LANDON RULES!!!!!!

    SPOILER ALERT
    On one hand
    Rory has a normal enough life she goes to school and has trouble with her parent's divorce. Even after she finds out about EAS she still a sleepover with Lena and is bullied by Chase.
    On the other hand
    She fights a dragon, learns fairy tales are real, climbs a beanstalk despite her fear of heights, hides in a breadbox full of bones (most are not human), uses a book as a weapon (thats my type of girl) (books, good read, good to throw), fights a evil queen and a moving carpet with a painting, fights nine dragons, and completely changes the tales

    It is realistic in her normal life so people can sympathize and action packed the rest of the time so it has enough fantasy it seems impossible and farfetched so that you feel close to Rory but the way its put it makes the fantasy part seem almost real as impossible as it is
