Airy tales are very real and she is destined to star in one of her ownThis first installment of The Ever Afters series reimagines classic fairy tale characters in a modern context merging familiar fantasy with the everyday realities of middle grade existence. Age 10Content Warnings Divorce minimal violence death alcohol consumptionLibrary Category Juvenile Fairy Tale FantasyThis is one of the few middle grade novels that hasn’t lost its charm It’s disappointing that with such a high average rating barely anyone’s ever heard of it; even my huge library network only has a couple of copies Anyways it’s a fairy tale world with a uesting aspect to it that gives it a bit of a Percy Jackson vibe The writing wasn’t high level per se but for a middle grade novel it didn’t disappoint The plot and pacing were well done and I was almost constantly on the edge of my seat even though I’ve read the book before My only concern is the example the characters are setting for younger children Just like my re read of another middle grade fantasy novel Fablehaven I found that the characters were not the best role models Back to this book in some ways they learned to work together and become friends but the teasing was rude and mocking than in good humor and the fights were often extremely petty This isn’t to say that it’s not a realistic outlook on today’s society or a reflection of how typical childrenteens act but I also don’t think we should be feeding our children this kind of behaviorPossibly offensive content For anyone 13 there shouldn’t be many issues although the MC's parents were divorced and there was one scene in which an adult drank to excess For younger children as I mentioned above the amount of blatant rudeness could definitely be considered a little over the top There was some violence but it wasn’t too graphic there were a few dragon fights a kid lost a few fingers multiple kids fainted etc There were definitely a few mature themes mature in terms of elementary schoolers Really think of other middle grade novels like The Wishing Spell The Land of Stories series Fablehaven the Fablehaven series The Lightning Thief the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series etcI would highly recommend this uartet to anyone looking for a fun uick read for themselves or their children

Maybe I've read too many MG contemporary fairy tales about kids at a magic school but in my opinion this is too much of the same There are some interesting attempts at originality and at thoughtfulness but it goes on far too long with not much happening not much getting to know the characters beyond their iconographic roles and an ending that is almost a cliffhanger And yet I'm done I don't really want to know ppl better or know what happens nextI did get a recommendation to find out what the tale The Garden of Paradise is
