|Summary, etc.:||Real life and fairy tales collide in The Thirteenth Fairy, book one in the new middle-grade Never After series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz. Nothing ever happens in Filomena Jefferson-Cho's sleepy little suburban town of North Pasadena. The sun shines every day, the grass is always a perfect green, and while her progressive school swears there's no such thing as bullying, she still feels bummed out. But one day, when Filomena is walking home on her own, something strange happens. Filomena is being followed by Jack Stalker, one of the heroes in the Thirteenth Fairy, a series of books she loves about a brave girl and her ragtag group of friends who save their world from an evil enchantress. She must be dreaming, or still reading a book. But Jack is insistent--he's real, the stories are real, and Filomena must come with him at once! Soon, Filomena is thrust into the world of evil fairies and beautiful princesses, sorcerers and slayers, where an evil queen drives her ruthless armies to destroy what is left of the Fairy tribes. To save herself and the kingdom of Westphalia, Filomena must find the truth behind the fairytales and set the world back to rights before the cycle of sleep and destruction begins once more.|

Filomena is a big fan of the Never After books, a fantasy series set in the world of the real stories behind the fairy tales, and on the day the last book is finally meant to be released, she experiences a small, hair-raising, supernatural adventure in place of reading about one. Soon after, though, she finds out that the stories from her books are absolutely real. When she gets an opportunity to ditch school for an adventure in the world of Never After, it's a relief: she's tired of being bullied harshly for her mixed heritage, her distinctive fashion choices, her good academics, and the fact that she's adopted, and even though her family loves her deeply, she's eager to find a team of friends and allies outside home. Fans of fantasy and fairy tales of all kinds will delight in catching all the references to classics from Little Miss Muffet to Lord of the Rings, and the twist-filled plot moves along quickly with plenty of action and snappy banter. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: De la Cruz is no stranger to the best-seller lists, and a massive marketing campaign will make sure this new series starter gets plenty of attention from her many fans. Grades 5-8. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
