Hi! Have you ever felt like a hero? It’s a good feeling, right? Well, that’s what Gilly feels like! By the way, before I start this review, you should probably know that you should read my first review and read the first book in this series, Flunked, before you read this review. Because in it, I’ll give away some details about that book. And I don’t want to spoil it for you.
Anyway, I’ll get back to the review now. Last year, when she stopped the Evil Queen from killing Snow White, Gilly felt like a celebrity! But it also was a great responsibility. People started expecting more of her and when the Evil Queen gave her a pass to go home, Gilly felt a bit suspicious. It was tempting, but it seemed a bit odd for the Evil Queen to let someone go for behavior. So Gilly decided not to leave.
Suddenly, Gilly’s arch-nemesis, Jocelyn, became friends with Gilly’s friends. It was hard for the two of them to get along, but her friends felt that it would be better to have Jocelyn on their side. Gilly spent all year not liking Jocelyn. And when she’s been invited to the Royal Ladies in Waiting Club, she says no at first, but then she reconsiders and says yes so that she can get more information.
Gilly’s friends think that there’s someone in the castle that is working with Alva (Maleficent as you may know her). Alva wants to overthrow the world and make it become hers. And she needs some recruits. So she went to the Mostly Reformed Fairy School to get some.
What will happen? Will Gilly save the day with her friends again? Or will Alva win this time, making more destruction and more chaos than ever? As I always say, read the book to find out!
I recommend this book to readers who love adventure, excitement, and mostly magic! It was an amazing story, and I think that most anyone would love it!
A few helpful things I like to say about the books I read:
“Run and Get Mom” (how I describe the scariness factor):
There were a few scary parts in this book.
“Yucky-Lovey Stuff” (how I describe the romance factor):
There was a bit of yucky-lovey stuff, but it wasn’t too severe.
I give this book 5 wands.
It was amazing! I loved the magic and adventure and I think you will, too!
