Bewitching (The Kendra Chronicles) by Alex Finn
Reading Level: Young Adult
Release Date: February 14, 2011
Summary: Kendra Hilferty, the witch who curses Kyle Kingsbury in Beastly, tells about her immortal existence—how she discovered she was a witch and the various ways she has used her powers to help people throughout the centuries. (Unfortunately her attempts have often backfired.) As it turns out, Kendra has actually had a hand in "Hansel and Gretel," "The Princess and the Pea," and "The Little Mermaid"—but these are not the fairy tales you think you know! Kendra’s reminiscences are wrapped around a real-time version of "Cinderella," except the “ugly” stepsister is the good guy. With dark twists, hilarious turns, and unexpected endings, Bewitching is a contemporary read for fairy-tale lovers, fantasy fans, and anyone looking for more Alex Flinn.
My Thoughts: I really loved Alex Finn's Beastly, so when I heard it was about Kendra, the witch, I was so excited! Alex always takes fairy tales and spins them into a modern tale you can fall in love with all over again. And I mean look at that cover! It's so beautifully dark and I want her dress. I cannot wait for this release.
