Publisher's Summary

Fairy Tale Survival Rule number 32: If you find yourself at the mercy of a wicked witch, sing a romantic ballad and wait for your Prince Charming to save the day.

Yeah, no thanks. Dorthea is completely princed out. Sure, being the crown princess of Emerald has its perks - like Glenda Original ball gowns and Hans Christian Louboutin heels. But a forced marriage to the not-so-charming prince Kato is so not what Dorthea had in mind for her enchanted future.

Talk about unhappily ever after.

Trying to fix her prince problem by wishing on a (cursed) star royally backfires, leaving the kingdom in chaos and her parents stuck in some place called "Kansas". Now it's up to Dorthea and her prince to find the mysterious Wizard of Oz and undo the curse...before it releases the wickedest witch of all and spells the end for the world of Story.

Great for teens, good for ya.

Good story, great performance. Definitely aimed towards tweens/teens but was still an enjoyable listen for me. More than the story, the worlds that were built from all kinds of fairytales are really nice, great imagery and every new tie in from another story is an exciting new piece to the puzzle, may get the second one for that alone.

tiresome and convoluted, not for me

Spelled is a backwards remake of The Wizard of Oz with many other characters, ideas, and even lines from nearly every other fairy tale. This version has some cute ideas that twist the original's plot. There are many clever puns or reworks of phrases that brought a chuckle, but I found the book tedious and difficult to finish. I read other books in between chapters of this because I didn't really want to read it. The events seemed to repeat themselves, and the ending seemed rushed and unexplained. Teens may enjoy it, and adults who like this genre better than I do.
