Kendra Hilferty, the witch who curses Kyle Kingsbury in Beastly, tells about her immortal existence how she discovered she was a witch and the various ways she has used her powers to help people throughout the centuries. (Unfortunately her attempts have often backfired.) As it turns out, Kendra has actually had a hand in "Hansel and Gretel," "The Princess and the Pea," and "The Little Mermaid" but these are not the fairy tales you think you know! Kendra s reminiscences are wrapped around a real-time version of "Cinderella," except the ugly stepsister is the good guy. With dark twists, hilarious turns, and unexpected endings, Bewitching is a contemporary read for fairy-tale lovers, fantasy fans, and anyone looking for more Alex Flinn. Praise for the #1 New York Times bestselling Beastly: Teens will LOL. They will also find their preoccupations with looks, status and pride explored thoroughly. Kirkus Reviews Praise for A Kiss in Time: Charming. ALA Booklist Praise for Cloaked: Flinn cleverly plays on some lesser-known fairy tales to make this book a fun, romantic adventure with likable characters. Rapid action and amusing situations make it a quick read that will easily entice even reluctant readers. School Library Journal
