When Sunday, the seventh daughter of a seventh daughter, kisses a frog and transforms him back into a prince, she sets off a series of fantastical events that uncovers deep family secrets and magical powers she never knew she possessed.

I really enjoyed this fairy tale mash-up that took a lot of twists and turns as the story unraveled. I was expecting a more traditional adaptation of the Princess and the Frog, but instead got a delightful story that was only loosely based on that tale. Lots of fun fairy tale references here. I did find the pacing to be a bit slow, I think due to the flowery language which did help set the fairy tale tone of the book.

A fun read perfect for graduates of the Sisters Grimm series and teens fond of fractured fairy tales.
