About the Author
Alex Flinn loves fairy tales and is the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Beastly, a spin on Beauty and the Beast that was named a VOYA Editor's Choice and an ALA Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers. Beastly is now a major motion picture starring Vanessa Hudgens. Alex also wrote A Kiss in Time, a modern retelling of Sleeping Beauty; Cloaked, a humorous fairy-tale mash-up; and Bewitching, a reimagining of fairy-tale favorites, including Hansel and Gretel, Cinderella, The Princess and the Pea, and The Little Mermaid, all told by Kendra—the witch from Beastly. Her other books for teens include Breathing Underwater, Breaking Point, Nothing to Lose, Fade to Black, and Diva. She lives in Miami with her family.

At first Emma believes her step-sister is really nice and starts trying to make the best of their situation. It soon becomes evident that there is more to the step-sister than Emma thought. The more she finds, the more she realizes that her step-sister really is evil.
Kendra, who has been enrolled in high school about 100 different times, decides to befriend Emma. Kendra's only problem is trying to decide if she should try to help Emma magically. See Kendra's magic doesn't always work out the way it is meant to. So Emma might end up in worse shape than when she started.
I would recommend this story to anyone that enjoys a good twisted fairytale. Although this is the second in the Kendra Chronicles series, this is the first book in the series that I read. The book is a whole story all to itself, so I did not feel like I missed anything by not having read the first.
Emma and Lisette's story is broken into three parts divided by new twists on the Princess and the Pea and The Little Mermaid. The POV jumps from Kendra to the main character of each story she shares and although the format is different from most books I read, the transitions were smooth and easy to follow.
If you enjoyed Beastly, A Kiss In Time, or fairytales in general, you should read this book. This is by far my favorite Alex Finn book and I look forward to reading future installments of the Kendra series.
