Publisher's Summary

A hilarious tween adventure set in a dazzling fantasy world with two extraordinary heroines - a modern-day fairy tale with bite.
Once best friends, Agatha and Sophie were pulled apart like strangers, each in the arms of a boy, Good with Good, Evil with Evil.... Is their friendship lost forever after?
But as they settle into their new lives, their story begs to be rewritten, and this time theirs isn't the only one. With the girls apart, Evil has taken over, and the villains of the past have come back to change their tales and turn the world of Good and Evil upside down.
With Evers being murdered and Nevers reigning supreme, the girls need to restore the balance, find the end to their story, and - hopefully - become friends again.

What a mess.

Undoes everything the wonderful game-changing first book did. Can't believe how Tedros isn't called out for any of his misogyny and we were so queer-baited with two same sex kisses. I can't believe the same person wrote this book as the other two. The second book had potential to enrich and deepen the themes and characters of the first but this one really unravelled everything. There was no need for sequels but if they had to be done why not bring more social commentary instead of making everything except Sophie fit in with old tropes? I won't spoil (though please don't get this gross book anyway) but even her ending didn't fully make sense.
I legit rolled my eyes so many times. Almost every single thing Tedros said/did was entitled and sexist and instead of growing from it he was literally called "perfect".
I'm so tired of being let down. Especially after being so grateful and excited about such a perfect first book, only to see it totally undone. I'm going to have to look into whether the author was blackmailed into writing this or something, that's genuinely how in awe I am at how all the good stuff was backtracked.
I'm so disappointed and upset but at least this has inspired me to finally write my own wlw fairytale that I started years ago.
