Kendra, the witch behind the transformational curse in Beastly (2007), finally has the floor. In 1666, teenage Kendra relates the horror of watching her family die from a plague, halted only when she becomes aware of her own magic and heals her remaining brother. Starving, they set out for a new life and find themselves at a gingerbread house. Sound familiar? Flinn twists more fairy tales into this engaging, time-jumping tale as Kendra reflects on helping—and harming—those around her. The Little Mermaid rescues a Titanic passenger. The Princess and the Pea takes place at Versailles. But the showstopper is a clever spin on Cinderella, the pieces hovering just above the puzzle until they fall brilliantly into place in a satisfying and surprising retelling in contemporary Florida. Kendra’s chatty first-person asides can be jarring next to the larger sections filled with a rich storyteller tone. Regardless, the inventive takes on the traditional will please fans of Flinn and fairy tales alike and leave them eager for Kendra’s next volume. Grades 8-11. --Heather Booth --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I will Definitely be reading this story again and again! Oh SO Good!!
At first Emma believes her step-sister is really nice and starts trying to make the best of their situation. It soon becomes evident that there is more to the step-sister than Emma thought. The more she finds, the more she realizes that her step-sister really is evil.
Kendra, who has been enrolled in high school about 100 different times, decides to befriend Emma. Kendra's only problem is trying to decide if she should try to help Emma magically. See Kendra's magic doesn't always work out the way it is meant to. So Emma might end up in worse shape than when she started.
I would recommend this story to anyone that enjoys a good twisted fairytale. Although this is the second in the Kendra Chronicles series, this is the first book in the series that I read. The book is a whole story all to itself, so I did not feel like I missed anything by not having read the first.
Emma and Lisette's story is broken into three parts divided by new twists on the Princess and the Pea and The Little Mermaid. The POV jumps from Kendra to the main character of each story she shares and although the format is different from most books I read, the transitions were smooth and easy to follow.
If you enjoyed Beastly, A Kiss In Time, or fairytales in general, you should read this book. This is by far my favorite Alex Finn book and I look forward to reading future installments of the Kendra series.
