YA Report: Enchanted by Alethea Kontis
I had first read Alethea Kontis in Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show years ago, and I have loved her ever since. So you can imagine how thrilled I was to read and review her debut YA novel, Enchanted! It is lovely, indeed:
“Enchanted” by Alethea Kontis is a YA fairy tale that follows Sunday, the seventh daughter of a seventh daughter, and her romance with a prince-turned-frog. Set in a world where it seems possible for all of our classic fairy tales to be true, “Enchanted” focuses on the importance of family and friends, trust, and the truth that builds that trust. After all, when your godmother is powerful enough to turn you into a frog, family matters.
