Today's Read: Whatever After: Fairest of All

What if you could travel to fairyland? Would you try to save your favorite characters from harm? Fifth-grader Abby and her little brother are about to find out.

My brother's hands are slipping. "Abby?" he says, and for the first time tonight, my brother—who isn't afraid of anything—sounds scared. . . .

"Jonah!" I scream. NO, NO, NO. I will NOT let the crazy mirror slurp up my brother. I'm in charge here! I will keep my brother safe!

I let go of the leg of the desk and grab him with both hands. With a satisfied grumble, the mirror sucks us both inside. (p. 18)
Whatever After: Fairest of All by Sarah Mylnowski (Scholastic Press, 2012)
