{Book Review} UnEnchanted (An Unfortunate Fairy Tale #1) by Chanda Hahn

UnEnchanted (An Unfortunate Fairy Tale #1)
by Chanda Hahn
Genre:Fiction- YA: Fantasy, Fairytale Re-telling,
How I got it: Free download on Amazon

Mina Grime is unlucky, unpopular and uncoordinated, that is until she saves her crush's life on a field trip, changing her High School status from loser to hero overnight. But with her newfound fame brings misfortune as an old family curse come to light. For Mina is descended from the Brothers Grimm and has inherited all of their unfinished fairy tale business. Which includes trying to outwit a powerful Story from making her its next fairytale victim. To break the fairy tale curse on her family and stop these deadly events, Mina must finish the tales until the very Grimm end.

Review: I labeled this as fairytale retelling but it's really not. It's a book with fairytale aspects. Mina is an interesting characters, but I felt she needed to grow more. I felt it was interesting idea, having the Grimm family trying to beat the fey version of the stories they collected. Although the ending sucked, I felt so bad for Mina. For a free book it was good, but probably won't buy the next one.
