Book Review: The Whatever After Series by Sarah Mlynowski

The Whatever After Series
Author: Sarah Mlynowski
Published by: Scholastic, Inc 

My Rating: ✭✭✭✭✭

There is only one way to describe Sarah Mlynowksi’s Whatever After series and that is: Hilarious!

Synopsis: Abby and Jonah thought their life was normal. Then they move to Smithville. And discover they have a magic mirror in their basement. A magic mirror that transports them into fairy tales! At first, they’re excited. Until they accidentally start messing up the fairy tales. And they don’t know how to get home. Will the characters—and Abby and Jonah—get a happy ending?

Characters: I found this series hilarious and lovable. Abby’s voice as a ten-year-old is convincing and extremely realistic. While the writing may not have been the best, the voice sold it for me. Abby sounds exactly like your average ten-year-old, which, in my opinion, makes it even better and even funnier.

Plot: The situations they find themselves in, the things they do to mess up fairy tales (accidentally, of course), made me laugh and laugh. I love rewritten fairy tales and so far this is the best series I’ve encountered! I mean, seriously: They go into Snow White and stop her from eating the apple. Cinderella breaks her foot so the slipper won’t fit. Rapunzel’s long hair gets cut off so the prince can’t climb up. Ooops!

Hilarious! If you’re looking for a quick, fun, great read, Whatever After is for you. Counting down the days until #7 releases….
