Description

Set in the world of the Newbery Honor-winning Ella Enchanted, this tale by beloved author Gail Carson Levine stars a clever heroine who is determined to defy expectations—and outwit a fairy's curse.

Evie is happiest when she is healing people, diagnosing symptoms and prescribing medications, with the help of her devoted friend (and test subject) Wormy. So when Wormy unexpectedly proposes to her, she kindly turns him down; she has far too much to do to be marrying anyone. And besides, she simply isn't in love with him.

But a certain meddling fairy named Lucinda has been listening in, and she doesn't approve of Evie's rejection. Suddenly, Evie finds herself transformed from a girl into a hideous, hungry ogre!

Stuck in this new and confusing form, Evie now has only sixty-two days to accept another proposal—or else be stuck as an ogre forever.

        When 15-year-old healer Evie rejects her best friend's marriage proposal in front of the fairy Lucinda, she unknowingly sets off a kingdomwide chain of events that will shape the course of Kyrrian history. To punish Evie for rejecting an "exemplary" suitor, Lucinda transforms her into an ogre and decrees that she must accept a proposal within 62 days or remain an ogre forever. Ogres are hated and feared by Kyrrians: hairy, short-tempered, odoriferous, and magically persuasive, they eat humans and livestock with equal zeal. Hoping to learn persuasion in order to obtain a proposal, Evie joins a band of ogres and promptly falls for their human captive: a silver-tongued merchant named Peter. But will he propose? Though her time with the band is limited, her first-person narrative style meticulously notes her observations ("ogre hands are blink fast," and "the ogre heart has a triple beat"). A chance encounter soon draws Evie back to human civilization. Even though she ministers to plague-stricken humans honorably, she faces suspicion and hostility, but she also gains loyal friends and learns valuable lessons about love. Levine references the Portuguese fairy tale "The False Prince and the True" and "Beauty and the Beast" to explore social prejudice, although Evie's experiences as an ogre ultimately seem to reinforce how different she is more than they encourage solidarity. The book assumes a white default.Longtime fans and new readers alike will devour this. (Fantasy. 8-12)

        Grades 4-7 Evie only has one thing on her mind, and that's healing the sick. She isn't expecting her friend Wormy to propose to her, and of course she turns him down. But that answer isn't good enough for Lucinda, the meddling fairy who likes to attend special occasions and give terrible gifts. Outraged at Evie's lack of romantic spirit, she turns her into an ogre and gives her 62 days to accept another proposal?or remain an ogre forever. Undaunted, practical Evie sets to learn what she can from other ogres and then returns to the world of men, where she becomes entangled in a political plot. But her clock is winding down, and every day she doesn't find true love brings her closer to life as an ogre. This prequel to the Newbery Honor Book Ella Enchanted? (1997) is a clever, lighthearted spin on Beauty and the Beast that features a heroine more than capable of choosing her own path. Readers new and old to Levine's world will find much to love.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2018, American Library Association.)
