I’m not your average hero. I actually wasn’t your average anything. Just a poor guy working an after-school job at a South Beach shoe repair shop to help his mom make ends meet. But a little magic changed it all. It all started with the curse. And the frognapping. And one hot-looking princess, who asked me to lead a rescue mission.

There wasn’t a fairy godmother or any of that. And even though I fell in love along the way, what happened to me is unlike any fairy tale I’ve ever heard. Before I knew it, I was spying with a flock of enchanted swans, talking (yes, talking!) to a fox named Todd, and nearly trampled by giants in the Everglades. Don’t believe me? I didn’t believe it either. But you’ll see. Because I knew it all was true, the second I got CLOAKED.

This is my first Alex Flinn book and it probably won't be my last. I really had fun with this one! I love fairytales so naturally I was drawn to this. Boy was it a ride! This book is a combination of over 5 fairytales, some more common, such as The Frog Prince, and some less known like The Salad. I loved the fact that my favorite fairytale, The Wild Swans, was a part of this book! Loved it!

First off, this book is narrated by a male voice. Shocker right? I wasn't expecting that but it wasn't bombed like I thought it might be. In fact I loved reading from Johnny's POV! He's funny, pretty smart and loves shoes. What more can you want than a guy who loves shoes? Haha. It also really neat reading from his POV as a girl reading and knowing things...yeah, things. Haha. Okay so specifically like how girls act and what that means. I think Flinn did a great job portraying him.

So the plot didn't have a problem keeping me interested. I loved where it went and the clever situations that arose. The way it all fit together in the end. It was super cool! Yay! The romance part was cute as well, but a bit obvious. Okay. It's staring you in the face. But it was sweet nontheless and I had fun watching it play out. Happy Ever After. *sigh*

I had a delightful time reading this and would recommend it to anyone in want to a good fairytale jamboree! A definite new favorite on my part.
