Cloaked by Alex Flinn

Cloaked by Alex Flinn
 I'm not your average hero. I actually wasn't your average anything. Just a poor guy working an after-school job at a South Beach shoe repair shop to help his mom make ends meet. But a little magic changed it all.

It all started with a curse. And a frognapping. And one hot-looking princess, who asked me to lead a rescue mission.

There wasn't a fairy godmother or any of that. And even though I fell in love along the way, what
happened to me is unlike any fairy tale I've ever heard. Before I knew it, I was spying with a flock of enchanted swans, talking (yes, talking!) to a fox named Todd, and nearly trampled by giants in the Everglades.

Don't believe me? I didn't believe it either. But you'll see. Because I knew it all was true, the second I got cloaked.

What I Can Tell You: Johnny, was thrust into a shoe repair job when his father left leaving him and his mother to take on the family business alone. Princess Victoria tricks him into fixing her shoe so she can send him on a mission to find her brother. Victoria's "Bruzzer" was turned into a frog by a witch and she needs Johnny's help to find him. She gives him more money than he has ever seen and promises him more and marriage if he can find her brother.  She also gives him a magical cloak that can transport him anywhere he wishes and ear buds that allow him to hear other animals as long as they were once human. Sounds interesting right?!

This was a great read by the author of Beastly which has been made into a movie starring Vanessa Hudgens. It was a modern day Grimm fairy tale, full of surprises and fantasy! I am really interested in reading more Alex Flinn books and I can't wait to pass this onto my teenage nieces who I know will love it even more than me.
