K10: TRICKED by Jen Calonita

Tell us a little about yourself: what is your first name, how old are you, and what is your favorite flavor of ice cream? 

My name is Sierra and I'm eleven years old. My favorite flavor of ice cream (right now) is pistachio.

What book did you read and why did you choose it? 

The book I chose is called Tricked by Jen Calonita. It's the third book in the Fairy Tale Reform School series (Flunked and Charmed are the first two books).

Can you describe this book in one word? 


What was your favorite part of this story? 

When Gilly and her friends met Red (Little Red Riding Hood) because I really liked Red's personality.

If you had a problem similar to the main character's problem, what would you do? 

In Tricked, Gilly's sister is hanging out with some not so good people (they steal candy and got Anna thrown into Fairy Tale Reform School (FTRS)). Gilly tells her younger sister, Anna, that she shouldn't hang out with people who aren't nice. Anna doesn't listen to Gilly, but I would have done the same thing and tried to talk to her about it too, but I would have been less intense about it.

What would you say to your best friend to convince them to read this book? 

I'd tell her that the book is awesome--you never know what's going to happen next. But I'd suggest that my friend start with book 1 in the series, Flunked.

What do you think about the book's cover? 

I was confused (in good ways) and intrigued by it.

Would you want to read another book about these characters? Why or why not? 

YEAH!!! Totally because the book had a mega-cliff hanger and I love all of the characters.

Can you name another book that reminds you of this one? 

Not really, it's too unique. But it does remind me of the show Ever After High because it's about the sons and daughters of fairy tale characters. Oh, also The Descendants

If you could ask the author one question about this book what would it be? 

What gave you the idea to bring Rumpelstiltskin into the story?

🌟Thanks for sharing this book and your thoughts on it with us, Sierra!🌟

Things are changing at Fairy Tale Reform School.
At least, that's what Gilly's heard through the Enchantasia rumor mill. Word is, notorious trickster Rumpelstiltskin has taken over management from Headmistress Flora, and he's locked down the school tighter than the Pied Piper's pants. Not that this news concerns Gilly. She's been released from FTRS and is now suffering through attending Jack of All Trades School, where she gets to learn about different kinds of shoe leather and ways to measure feet. Truly riveting stuff.
But when Gilly's little sister Anna gets whisked off to FTRS thanks to her troublemaking new friends, Hansel and Gretel, Gilly knows she's got to get Anna out of there. There's only one thing to do; make some serious trouble and get thrown back into FTRS.
It's time to out-trick a trickster.
Praise for Fairy Tale Reform School: Flunked

"Spell-binding and wickedly clever."―Leslie Margolis, author of the Annabelle Unleashed novels and the Maggie Brooklyn mysteries.
