Ever After High: The Storybook of Legends by Shannon Hale!


At Ever After High, an enchanting boarding school, the children of fairytale legends prepare themselves to fulfill their destinies as the next generation of Snow Whites, Prince Charmings and Evil Queens…whether they want to or not. Each year on Legacy Day, students sign the Storybook of Legends to seal their scripted fates. For generations, the Village of Book End has whispered that refusing to sign means The End-both for a story and for a life.

As the daughter of the Evil Queen, Raven Queen’s destiny is to follow in her mother’s wicked footsteps, but evil is so not Raven’s style. She’s starting to wonder, what if she rewrote her own story? The royal Apple White, daughter of the Fairest of Them All, has a happy ever after planned for herself, but it depends upon Raven feeding her a poison apple in their future.

What if Raven doesn’t sign the Storybook of Legends? It could mean a happily never after for them both.

What an excellent story! I absolutely love anything to do with fairy tales, but the modern day twists and play on words were excellent!! Not to mention the life lessons on friendship, believing in who you are, and trusting your instincts! These characters were fun from the start, but developed into so much more throughout!
This book is in the 9-12 age group at the book store, and I would definitely recommend this to the younger of the group, or even younger still! Really, this book would be great for anyone who reads chapter books and loves fairy tales!
Cant wait to read the next! Ever After High: The Unfairest of Them All.
