About the Book

Set in the world of the Newbery Honor-winning Ella Enchanted, this tale by beloved author Gail Carson Levine stars a clever heroine who is determined to defy expectations—and outwit a fairy’s curse.

Evie is happiest when she is healing people, diagnosing symptoms and prescribing medications, with the help of her devoted friend (and test subject) Wormy. So when Wormy unexpectedly proposes to her, she kindly turns him down; she has far too much to do to be marrying anyone. And besides, she simply isn’t in love with him.

But a certain meddling fairy named Lucinda has been listening in, and she doesn’t approve of Evie’s rejection. Suddenly, Evie finds herself transformed from a girl into a hideous, hungry ogre!

Stuck in this new and confusing form, Evie now has only sixty-two days to accept another proposal—or else be stuck as an ogre forever.

Critical Praise

“Longtime fans and new readers alike will devour this.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Readers new and old to Levine’s world will find much to love.” — Booklist

“Levine does an excellent job of getting into the mind of an ogre (Evie is overwhelmed by a sudden aversion to vegetables in all forms), and although the plot’s many strands are wide-ranging, she brings them together for a satisfying resolution.” — The Horn Book

“Like all of Levine’s heroines, Evie is complex, career-oriented, and likable as she bears up under seriously extraordinary pressures. With enough grotesqueries to satisfy the most transgressive tastes of juvenile humor and enough light romance to balance the scales, this trips lightly over a wide range of emotional appeals.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Levine offers another engaging story and heroine readers will adore. Evie is strong, independent, and smart, discovering herself and her own definition of love through experience and reflection... Plot and pacing will engage voracious and reluctant readers alike.” — School Library Journal
