I have always been a fairy-tale fanatic, and love reading rewrites of the originals. This new version of Toads and Diamonds wasn't only a rewritten fairy tale, it also touched upon the different aspects of middle school life. I feel a little bit sorry that Cat's fairy godmother is a little mixed up, but any fairy godmother's better than none, right? As I read this book, I could hardly stop laughing. It was absolutely hilarious! I especially liked the part where the toads came out of her bassoon! This is my idea of a good teen fiction book. I think anyone could read this book and love it.
