By Alex Flinn
A novel which combines several lesser told fairy tales with modern life. The novel tells the story of Johnny, a shoemaker in South Florida, who takes on a quest from Princess Victoriana to find her brother who has been turned into a frog. If he finds him he gets to marry the princess. Along the way he discovers that maybe marrying a princess isn't what he wants, but the girl he has always known might be.
The book is a great read for teens who like modern romance with a hint of fantasy to it. The writing is simple but the story is well developed. It's also fun to see how Flinn weaves in a variety of fairy tales into one story.
