The Unfairest of Them Allby Shannon Hale
It’s the aftermath of Legacy Day, the day when the students at Ever After High are supposed to pledge to follow in their fairytale parents’ footsteps, and everyone is in a huff and a puff! Raven Queen, daughter of the Evil Queen, has refused to sign the Storybook of Legends, rejecting her story–and putting everyone else’s in jeopardy.
The Royal Apple White doesn’t want to think Raven is being a rebellious pain, but Raven’s choice means Apple might never get the poisoned apple, Prince Charming, and a kingdom to rule. Behind Apple stands the Royals, those who want to play by the book and embrace their stories. The Rebels, supporters of Raven, believe in breaking free from destiny and writing their own stories.
But when the chaos and rivalry land wonderlandiful Madeline Hatter in trouble, Raven and Apple must bring the Royals and the Rebels together to shut the book on their feud before it threatens to end all of their Happily Ever Afters once and for all.

Ratings and Reviews from the Librarians
Miranda rated it ★★★★ and said, “4.5 stars. I must have been in a different frame of mind with this one than the first because instead of being annoyed at the funny quirks and twists of fairy tales, I found them hilarious and clever. Favorite line: ‘It’s about to get all nonfiction in here.’ I love where this is going and can’t wait to deal with the Jabberwocky in the next book. He’s always been deliciously chilling for me ever since the made-for-TV Alice in the 80’s.”
