"Newbery-winning Keller includes some familiar characters from well-known stories while adding some new dimension with a contemporary spin. The girls are told they cannot make changes to the stories as written, but when they start seeing the dark side of things, they decide they'll do anything to get back home. Themes of friendship, honesty, and integrity really shine here, and the girls' journey to safety makes for an exciting page-turner." -Booklist"Keller leans into the power of fairy tales, friendship, and self-acceptance via this quickly paced fantasy. Familiar elements combine with vivid storytelling and cartoon renderings by Rodríguez (Bella's Recipe for Success) to underline themes of adventure and self-discovery." - Publishers Weekly
