Summary (Goodreads): 
Seventeen year old Albany French wants nothing more than to find her very own happily ever after. She dreams of finding her fairy godmother, going to the ball, and being swept away by a Prince. Much to her dismay, her life is no fairy tale. Albany is just a typical, all American girl who attends an overly crowded public high school.

An untimely tragedy leaves Albany desperate for a new life.
She seeks comfort in her eccentric grandmother, Greta. Not only does Greta welcome Albany into her home with open arms, but she transfers Albany to a new school.
But... this new school is not your average high school. This is... Happily Ever After High, the enchanting high school that hosts hundreds of magical, fairytale students.
Albany is about to begin the journey of a lifetime… as she discovers who she really is, where her family came from, falls in love for the first time, and embarks on a quest to fulfill a prophecy that has been passed on for ages.

Welcome to Happily Ever After High.

Albany is independent, determined, unique, creative and she is definitely a day dreamer.
She absolutely hates public school because she feels that she doesn't belong. Albany doesn't really have any friends at her old school as the students at her school kind of find her very odd ;) - she does have her flaws tho, she can be stubborn and a real mess.

She has a very witty sense of humor which she often use in sarcasm (which was entertaining!)
- mostly in situation of conflict. She just likes to stick to her gut and is not afraid to increase it. She really stood out with her sarcasm and humor. Honestly the things she did or said had me laughing a lot. You've got to love a character whose inner monologue can make you crack up ;) It was well written which made me wish I could have went a to a magical high school full of Fairy Tales, mythological creatures and even meet you're favorites Disney princess - in my old days when I was still a kid ^_^.

I do hope Ben will kick some ass and believe in himself in "Once Upon A University" - I'm so looking forward to read that! :D
I don't know but I need Ben to have more gut like Albany and take control sometime :) - BUT I still like Ben, he was still sweet ;).

That said it was still a enjoyable read and I would definitely recommend this book to fairytale lovers :D

5/5 Stars <3
