"Wow, what a fun middle grade novel with fantastic characters, an amazing and witty main character and a magical plot.. Jenny's voice is pitched perfectly for the book's intended audience and her magical problems reflect the real world problems that 9-12 year olds face every day. A very different but original and recommended read!" -- Marjolein Bookblog
"Anna Staniszewski creates a magical world that's totally relatable. You'll find yourself wishing you were alongside Jenny fighting against unicorns (who aren't as peaceful as you think) and traveling to fantastical realms." --
"Part of the genius behind Anna's premise is that middle readers who like and middle readers who don't like traditional fairy tales will both enjoy it. It's a great middle ground that celebrates the spirit of fairy tales while turning them on their heads.

If your middle reader is looking for a fast-paced and humorous read, this quirky book is a great option." -- Cracking The Cover
