"A cute adventure with romance set in a world full of fairy-tale mash-ups. Readers will love Dorthea's evolution from spoiled princess to strong, confident heroine... For Oz fans, this work is a great clean-read alternative to Danielle Paige's Dorothy Must Die." - School Library Journal
"Spelled is full of clever plays on words and fun reinterpretations of the original classic. While the story is light and comedic, Schow manages to weave a deeper plot and satisfying character growth into the pages. Spelled is ideal for readers who are looking for something light and entertaining. Fans of The Wizard of Oz will appreciate Schow's attention to detail in bringing characters and places they already know to new life with a clever twist." - Deseret News
"There are, overall, two words to describe "Spelled" Clev. Er.

With a starting point of a basic princess story, Schow moves with lightning speed through just about every fairytale and fantasy story you can remember, taking her main character on an original adventure with an Oz flair and a flirt with classic Grimm...Not too hard and not too soft, this book is just right for 12- to 17-year-old readers, but be sure to borrow it back for yourself. Fee, fi, fo, fum, "Spelled" smells like gigantic fun.
