About the book:
Once upon a time, Cat Starr lived with her astronaut mom in Houston. But when her mother gets sent on a long-term mission, Cat has to move to a far away land—her dad's house, halfway across the country—and share a room with her real-life evil stepsister, Olivia. Just when Cat can’t take it anymore, Great-Aunt Abyssinia comes to the rescue. And things go from bad to worse.
The next morning, Cat opens her mouth and a toad hops out! What's more, when Olivia speaks, diamonds and flowers appear. How unfair is that? Before you can say "happily ever after," the girls are on the run from jewel thieves and a government agency. Can Cat save the day—and get rid of all those toads?
This is an enchanting fractured fairy tale from acclaimed Mother-Daughter Book Club author Heather Vogel Frederick.
I loved this book soooo much,I finished it in ONE DAY! Cat starts spitting toads,Olivia spews gems and flowers,and Cat's stepbrother Geoffrey gets kidnapped... This is a modern-ized fairytale with a twist. There`s none of the "they prince and princess got married and had babies, blah blah blah," junk in it. I love a good book,and this is so definitely one of them! I`d recommend it to all my friends, acquaintances, family members and random people! This book was very awesome, and on my list of top ten favorite books, definitely!
