Book 43 - Half Upon a Time
My forty-third book was Half Upon a Time by James Riley. This was another book of my sister's (her favorite, actually), so I said I would read it. It was actually very good. Jack lives in a fairy tale (not one that we would think was "normal", though.) It seems like everyone around him is rescuing princessess and going on adventures and that they want him to do the same. But he feels like he just doesn't have it in him. Then May comes along. She is wearing a shirt that says "Punk Princess", so he assumes she's a princess from the land of Punk. What he doesn't know is that she's from our time, transported back The Huntsman, who is also trying to hunt her down. Yes, the Huntsman. As in, Snow White. Then she finds out, not only is he trying to find her, but her grandmother is actually Snow White and she's been kidnapped by the Wicked Queen. Then, just when she thinks her story couldn't get any weirder, she meets a handsome prince, an imp, a giant, a wolf-man, Little Red Riding Hood, a magical genie, an evil fairy, a tiny fairy, and Repunzel. Yeah...she has a very busy week.
