Filomena and her friends are back for another adventure as they try to save Never After.Filomena Jefferson-Cho, 12, has just returned from stopping the evil ogre queen in Never After, the world she once thought to be just fiction. Suddenly, her friends Jack the Giant Stalker; Jack’s sidekick, Alistair; and Gretel, the Cobbler’s daughter, appear at her door in North Pasadena asking for help once again. It seems Cinderella is not the innocent orphan bullied by her stepmother and stepsisters that the mortal world believes her to be. She is actually a thief who stole a pair of glass slippers—which hold magic powers—from her stepsisters, Hortense and Beatrice. The four friends travel across multiple kingdoms of Never After to retrieve the glass slippers and stop the Prophecy that spells out the end of their world. The journey isn’t easy, and many creatures want to eat them along the way, including the gingerbread-house witch and the Beast. As Jack struggles with what it means to be a hero, Filomena learns how important words are and how truths and lies can completely change the end of a story. This entertaining sequel is full of humor and daring escapades, and the ending nicely sets things up for the next entry. Ethnic and racial diversity are naturally woven into the story.Switches up well-known fairy tales and fantastical stories in an exciting way. (Fantasy. 10-14)

Discover a new middle-grade fantasy saga from Melissa de la Cruz, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Descendants series, with Never After: The Stolen Slippers , where real life and fairy tales collide! Tossed back into the not-so-familiar fairy-tale world of Never After, Filomena Jefferson-Cho and her friends set off on another adventure . . . this time in search of Cinderella's glass slipper. Or rather, glass slippers . It turns out the classic story of Cinderella is full of lies--starting with how Cinderella herself is far from the innocent heroine everyone thinks she is. She is manipulative and cunning--willing to do anything to be the princess of Eastphalia. The real heroines of her story are her "wicked" stepsisters, Hortense and Beatrice, who aren't actually wicked at all! With the help of the dashing Jack Stalker, adorable Alastair, and glamorous Gretel, Filomena must track down the slippers, which may be the key to a certain mysterious prophecy . . . And when Filomena and Beatrice get tossed into the Beast's dungeon, all hope seems to be lost. Will the conniving Cinderella shatter everyone's hopes for a true un-twisted ending? Or will Filomena and her friends secure the happily ever after Cinderella's stepsisters deserve?
