Gr 4–7—The Fairy Tale Reform School is back in session with another adventure featuring the heroic pickpocket Gilly Cobbler. After stopping Alva, the wicked queen whose curse struck Sleeping Beauty, from taking over Enchantasia, Gilly and her friends find themselves back in another precarious situation. A mole has broken into the ranks of The Fairy Tale Reform School and is helping Alva plot another scheme to take over the land. Gilly goes undercover as a Royal Lady in Waiting to uncover who the mole is and hopefully stop the attacks in time. Fans of Colanita's previous book in the series (Flunked) will enjoy this continuation of the story. New readers will be caught up within the first few pages thanks to a blog-scroll ("Happily Ever After Scrolls") that recurs throughout the book. Tweens who are fans of fractured fairy tales like the "Whatever After" series by Sarah Mlynowski and "Once Upon A Time" will have no problem getting into this read.
