Fairytales aren’t real…yeah…that’s exactly what Bianca thought. She was wrong.
For generations, the Frost family has run the Museum of Magical and Rare Artifacts, handing down guardianship from mother to daughter, always keeping their secrets to “family only.”
Gathered within museum’s walls is a collection dedicated to the Grimm fairy tales and to the rare items the family has acquired: Cinderella’s glass slipper, Snow White’s poisoned apple, the evil queen’s magic mirror, Sleeping Beauty’s enchanted spinning wheel…
Seventeen-year-old Bianca Frost wants none of it, dreaming instead of a career in art or photography or…well, anything except working in the family’s museum. She knows the items in the glass display cases are fakes because, of course, magic doesn’t really exist.
She’s about to find out how wrong she is.
Bianca is floored to find out who she is, after all fairy tales aren’t real right? She is thrown into a whole new world and isn’t quite sure if she can handle it all. She has her best friend to give her a hand as she travels into an adventure of a lifetime. I absolutely love the way Liz DeJesus made a fairy tale come to life in modern day terms. Part of the enjoyment of reading a book is being transported by an author’s words to a place we can see in our mind. This book definitely took me there, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and will reread it again. I recommend this to fantasy lovers, and those who would enjoy an updated fairy tale. After all we can decide that fairy tales are real, if only in our imagination. I cannot wait to jump into the next book, I am absolutely a fan.
