Enchanted is an aptly titled novel, as this entire story is so utterly enchanting and fun, full of magic and serendipity. Kontis creates a fun and engaging character in Sunday and her large family, and weaves in more fairy tale elements than you'd think could exist into a story without letting the threads get snarled. Sunday's world is enlarged when she loses her best friend, but her road to finding him again—in prince form, no less—is exciting as she discovers the true identity of her fairy godmother, the reasons behind her family members' special talents, and uncovers a terrible plot that could mean tragedy for the whole kingdom—and especially her own family. This is a delightfully charming book, with many little subplots and character sketches, and the start of what will hopefully be more books about the Woodcutters.
Cover Comments: I like how bright and colorful this cover is, and I think that the pretty dress on the front will appeal to a lot of characters. I can appreciate how this cover really says "YA!" which I think is interesting, because I was really surprised that this book wasn't MG. Either way, it's pretty and I think it's doing it's job in attracting readers!
