This is book number 14 in the Whatever After series.
Guess where we are this time? The magic mirror has sent me and my brother, Jonah (plus our puppy, Prince), into the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Fun! There's porridge to taste, chairs to sit on, and beds to nap in. But Goldilocks is in a LOT of trouble, and if we can't help her, we might get stuck here forever!
Now we have to:
- Skateboard down a mountain
- Convince the bear family NOT to eat us
- Get one hundred gold coins
- Escape the royal jail
...And find the one fairy tale character who can turn straw into gold... Wait... Rumpelstiltskin? What are YOU doing here?!
Praise for Whatever After:

"Hilarious . . . with unexpected plot twists and plenty of girl power." -- Booklist
"An uproariously funny read. The swift pace of the tale and non-stop action . . . will enchant readers from the first page." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Giddy, fizzy, hilarious fun!" -- Lauren Myracle, author of Luv Ya Bunches
"Tons of fractured fairy tale fun!" -- Meg Cabot, author of Allie Finkle's Rules for Girls and The Princess Diaries
I had such a BLAST with this book. This book is an oral history of a hugely-popular fictional rock band from the 70s--which, by the end of the book, you can hardly believe isn't a real band!! This book is so darn comfortable to sink into, and it’s so weirdly entertaining to watch this band have all of its meltdowns and successes, all its failures and triumphs. You get to know each of these characters and their quirks so well that by the time Daisy Jones and the Six are performing onstage, you feel like you're right there in the audience as a fan. You get to be part of all the moments that make a rock band go down in history… What a blast!!
Truly, the only problem I have with this book is that there isn't a Daisy Jones and the Six album to listen to along with it.....
