Ever After High: The Unfairest of them All by Shannon Hale

     Welcome to Ever After High, the school where all the fairytale children study. The school is divided into two. The Royals, who want to follow in their parents' footsteps, and the rebels, who want to make their own happily ever after. Legacy Day is the day where each student is supposed to sign the Storybook of Legends, and pledge to follow in their fairytale parents' footsteps. 

     But Raven Queen, daughter of the evil queen, has put everyone's story in jeopardy. She broke her page in the storybook of legends, since she didn't want to be the next evil queen, and poison Apple White, daughter of Snow White. (Technically, Apple and Raven are frenemies.)

     And that could break all of the students' destinies.

     With Yester Day coming, each student should download an app on their phones, which will let them visit any fairytale world they want to help them fulfill their destinies. 

     But a day comes where Madeline Hatter, daughter of the Mad Hatter, is expelled because of touching the Uni Carin and responsible of making Wonderland's Jabberwocky even stronger.

     Apple and Raven do everything to make Maddie get back to Ever After High. They ask help from their fellow schoolmates. Then they suddenly find theirselves asking help from Raven's mom, the Evil Queen, (who is in Mirror Prison) through a laptop. Rumor has it that the evil queen was dead, but she was very much alive, only hidden in prison. To help Maddie, Raven has to reach a higher level of her magic, and there's only one person who can help her do that, which is her mom. 

     Will Raven and Apple ever help Maddie and stop the Jabberwocky? Will the Evil Queen have mercy and help?

     This book gives a twist to the fairytales we know of. With the daughter of the evil queen being kind and making friends with Snow White's daughter, you'll probably be nicer to the evil queen. If you also love all kinds of fairytales, prepare to read some kind of unique fan fiction crossover. With fun, excitement, humor, and adventure, you'll be thinking twice about your usual fairytale characters.
