It's Legacy Year for Apple White, daughter of Snow White; Raven Queen, daughter of the evil queen, and their friends. The second year is called Legacy Year, and it's when the students sign the Storybook of Legends. Headmaster Grimm says that if you don't sign the Storybook of Legends you'll disappear from Ever After. But Raven doesn't want to sign! Raven and Apple sneak out of school, when everyone else is asleep, to look for Bella Sister, who refused to sign years ago. When looking for Bella they get stuck on a cliff! Will they get back to school on time? Read the book to find out.
One reason I like this book is, most parts show both Raven's and Apple's view. Another reason I like this book is because Maddie talks directly with the narrator! The narrator gives away things that Maddie shouldn't know. One of my favorite parts was a hilarious misunderstanding between Briar Beauty and Maddie Hatter involving... a pig! I read this funny and exciting book at least three times.
I recommend this book to people ages 8 and up since it's a long chapter book. It's great for anyone who likes books about princesses or adventures. If you like fairy tales, you'll love these stories about the children of some of your favorite characters in school.
