After reading the WONDERFUL Percy Jackson books by Rick Riordan, I decided to start reading some more Middle Grade books! There are so many wonderful ones that I missed out on sooooo I’m like living out my childhood again. While Flunked wasn’t my favorite book, it was a great surprise that is a quick, enjoyable read.
✨ The cast of characters were all so adorable! Mixing old, memorable ones like Cinderella and her evil Step-Mother with new, exciting ones like Gilly, we get to see a whole new world. Gilly and her friends were a mix of adorable misfits with some serious sass. It was fun to read how they got together to solve the school’s mystery.
✨ What is cuter/awesomer/cooler than a Fairy Tale Reform School where children are sent to get taught by the villains we know? Honestly, the whole idea behind this book is just so cute I wish it were a cupcake I could eat!
✨Even though the whole book was a bit predictable for me (I thank Nancy Drew for teaching me to be a SLEUTH!), it was easy to enjoy. The overall idea like I alredy mentioned, characters, writing style and Fairy Tale references were CUTE. I keep saying cute but I MEAN IT! IT WAS CUTE!!!!
Sorry, it’s been a bit since I read this book. I really wanted to write it a review even if it’s a short one :)!
