The Storybook of Legends (2013)

Ever After High: The Storybook of Legends. Shannon Hale. 2013. Little, Brown. 320 pages. [Source: Library]

Completely shallow--well, mainly--but a good deal of fun too. The puns are never ending in this one, and it's obviously meant to be shallow on the surface. But. I liked this one for the most part. The heroine is Raven, the daughter of the Evil Queen in the Snow White story. Raven is dreading this year of school; she's dreading Legacy Day, the day where she'll commit herself and proclaim her destiny: she will become the evil queen, the story will live on for the next generation. Apple White, the daughter of Snow White, is her roommate. When Raven becomes obsessed with the idea of making choices and having free will and breaking from authority, well, Apple starts to panic. Raven has to become evil in order for her story to work. But Raven, well, she's just not the evil type. And she starts to notice that others aren't quite perfect for their prescribed roles either. Will she sign the Legacy Book? Or will she rebel against the system?

I enjoyed this one.
