    Stung and hurt because she wasn't voted as carnival leader, Abby storms back home with cumulonimbus clouds in her thoughts and actions. So it's a mild reprieve when she jumps into the mirror with her brother Jonah and lands in the Princess and the Pea fairytale...kind of. This time, Abby is determined not to mess anything up. But when she's too afraid to sleep atop the hundred mattresses given to her, everyone thinks she couldn't sleep because she sensed the pea under the mattresses, and suddenly Abby's dubbed a princess! After a while, Abby starts warming up to the princess treatment - who can argue when you have people waiting on you hand and foot, after all? - but knows she must find a real princess, someone who is truly good deep inside. And so, the princess games are on! But after venturing to the dark side of the moon and back with these games, and also having to fend off a snooty prince (all in a day's work!), Abby realizes that genuine leadership means stepping aside sometimes. Beautiful, creative, and inherently funny, this wonderful fractured fairy tale by Sarah Mlynowski is not to be missed!

    Abby's in a horrible mood. She just got eleventh place in the school spelling bee, even though she was completely sure she would win. She can spell! She's smart! So why didn't she come out on top? Eyes stinging, Abby simply grumbles irritably when her little brother Jonah suggests going through the mirror that night—that is, until she realizes that Jonah intends to go through the mirror alone. Abby's sisterly instincts kick in and she runs after her tricky little brother! This time, they land in the coveted Rapunzel story. They're thrilled to meet the actual Rapunzel in-person, I mean, who doesn't want to meet an internationally-renowned fairytale princess? But Jonah accidentally shreds and rips most of Rapunzel's hair by climbing up it with his soccer cleats. Oopsie! Now, Abby and Jonah race to save Rapunzel's hair—and, most importantly, her story—before it's too late. But along the way, Rapunzel uncovers horrifying truths that have been stored away for years, and Abby realizes that winning isn't always everything. This brilliant fifth installment in the Whatever After series is bound to raise the "hairs" (get it?) on the back of your neck, make you cry, and most importantly, make you smile.

    The book summary alone is enough to pull me in! Penned by the unbeatable duo Ally Condie x Brendan Reichs, this is an intriguing book revolving around thrills, chills, and more thrills. I would absolutely love to read this book, it sounds out of this world - literally!

    Everyone knows that if you lend something to a villain kid, it won't come back unscathed - or, even more realistically, it won't come back at all. The same is to be said for Mal, Evie, Carlos, and Jay, the four VKs chosen to visit Auradon. Maleficent, Mal's mother, gives them her spell book to cast the necessary spells to get Fairy Godmother's wand in villainous hands, and Mal doesn't hesitate to scrawl all over the spells. She writes down plans, communications, and other things for the other VKs to decipher. But when her feelings about her mother's wicked plan change...well, you'll have to see it for yourself! Following along with the award-winning plot of the Disney Descendants franchise, this is a zesty treat perfect for fans!

    The moment the million-dollar Descendants movie hit movie complexes, readers were vying for a novelization of the electrifying smash hit - and Disney gladly complied! Follow Evie, Mal, Carlos, and Jay as they venture through Auradon and their inevitable choices, just the way it was told in the movie. This junior novelization perfectly captures the magic of the film and its inspiration, The Isle of the Lost by Melissa de la Cruz!

    In the long-awaited third installment of Svetlana Chmakova's coveted Berrybrook Middle School series, Jorge Ruiz stars as the big guy everyone's afraid of. They couldn't be more wrong - Jorge has the softest heart anyone's ever seen - but he uses it to his advantage, influencing other students to make better decisions. As star of the baseball team, best friend to quirky Olivia and laid-back Garrett, and one of the most popular guys in school, all is well in the Jorge Ruiz universe. But suddenly, a meteor crashes into oblivion with the name of Jazmine (a GIRL!), and Jorge's world tilts beneath his feet. Jazmine's fun, cool, sweet, and a great actress...and she's also one of Olivia's best friends, meaning she's totally off-limits. She has a boyfriend, too! But somehow, Jorge can't nurse his crush, and begins to fall for her more and more every day. The Sports Ball is coming up, and when Jazmine suddenly breaks up with her boyfriend, can Jorge (the big guy everyone's afraid of, the one who's led the school to sports victory, remember?) summon up the courage to ask her to the ball? Fresh, zesty, and in beat with middle school crushes, I would one hundred percent recommend this to anyone of any age!
