Misfits

A brand new series from Jen Calonita, author of the award-winning Fairy Tale Reform School series!

"Funny, charming, and rebellious." ―James Riley, New York Times bestselling author of The Story Thieves series and the Revenge of Magic series

In Enchantasia, becoming a legendary prince or princess doesn't happen overnight. Enter Royal Academy, the training ground for the fairy tale leaders of tomorrow!

But Devin has major reservations about her new school and her royal future. How can she be a princess and the best creature caretaker Enchantasia has ever seen? It doesn't help that there's something seriously weird about RA's headmistress. Olivina seems obsessed with preparing students for possible attacks from villains ("A royal can't rule when they're stuck in a tower!") Devin gets that being Snow White and Rapunzel's fairy godmother has probably made Olivina pretty paranoid, but anytime someone steps a toe out of line, Olivina becomes more of a fairy nightmare than a fairy godmother.

Something isn't right with this lady, and Devin is determind to find out what. But what Devin discovers could change the fairy tale world forever...
