Gilly has picked one too many pockets and is now being sent off to Fairy Tale Reform School to rid her of her evil ways. But Gilly isn’t really evil; she is just trying to put food on the table to feed her family ever since her father’s shoe-making business went into a slump now that Cinderella’s fairy godmother can just wave a wand and make everyone glass slippers. But can a school run by ex-villains headed up by Cinderella’s own Wicked Stepmother really change people’s ways or is that just a front for banding evil characters together? Gilly and her new classmates Jax and Kayla are about to find out when they realize that something is not right at their school.
Readers will recognize many of the fairy tale characters around Enchantasia and will have fun figuring out how they fit into the story. Perfect fractured fairy tale for fans of Sarah Mlynowski and Jessica Day George.
