The Wishing Spell - Chris Colfer, Brandon Dorman This is about what you'd expect from any middle school, fairy-tale inspired book in this day and age. It was well-written, if not overdone. The humour was cute and the flow was pretty predictable, but nice.

I enjoyed the book, but kept in mind this is meant for younger middle schoolers that want to read something familiar with a twist. Aspects of this reminded me of older middle school reads I had read ages ago or the show Once Upon a Time, but more PG.

It was better than I thought it would be. :) Anything to get kids to read something other than Geronimo Stilton or Captain Underpants, even Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Srsly, this shit is selling like hot cakes at my store. How well do hot cakes sell anyway?
