8: My Connections | Text to Text: This book is almost like the Sisters Grimm. There are fairies and magic in every corner you turn. Text to Self: Fern and Mrs.Appleplum are book readers 24/7 I might not read every hour of the day but I love to read Text to World: Many kids get adopted in the world, but 2 or 3 kids get to meet there real parents sometime in their life. It's hard to be a kid that might not fit in.
9: C R I T I Q U E | * I would rate this book a 9 out of 10 Unique *great ideas and description creativity, the book, whole idea of changing into different objects and character *Wrote the book in their perspective(as if they were telling the story, pausing in between for dramatic effect) Dislike... *happily ever after-- lots of books end like this *brought in some characters that don't belong in this story
10: Recommendations | I would recommend this book to ANYBODY who likes fantasy and unexpected parts. There are fairies, characters from different books. It isn't a fairy tale but, you'll be shocked on what comes up. | R E C O M M E N D A T I O N S
