Allie Munroe has only ever wanted to belong, maybe even be well liked. But even though she’s nice and smart and has a couple of friends, she’s still pretty much the invisible girl at school. So when the chance to work with her friends and some of the popular kids on an English project comes up, Allie jumps at the chance to be noticed.
And her plan would have worked out just fine…if they hadn’t been sucked into a magical realm through a dusty old book of fairy tales in the middle of the library.
Now, Allie and her classmates are stuck in Nerissette, a world where karma rules and your social status is determined by what you deserve. Which makes a misfit like Allie the Crown Princess, and her archrival the scullery maid. And the only way out is for Allie to rally and lead the people of Nerissette against the evil forces that threaten their very existence.
One of the most entertaining books I’ve read in a while. I really did find that the characters are very likeable here. Our heroine, Allie or Alicia immediately is likeable and so are her classmates as well. This is rather one of those books where every character is going through something or gett... ...more
I received an ARC through NetGalley.
Magic makes me happy and the magicalness of Everlast did not disappoint. Therefore, Everlast makes me happy. The story took off right away, thrusting us into the magical realm of Nerissette along with Allie and her friends (and not-so friends). Turns out that w... ...more
I think I should start off by saying that I just about loved this book. It starts off with Allie and her friends headed off to the library to meet up with the school's it couple to work on a class project. They can't agree on which book to base it on and then they open one that is a portal betwee... ...more
For the full review, head to so long and thanks for all the fish
First, and most importantly, ignore the first paragraph of the synopsis. Allie is not like that at all! Ordinarily a blurb like that would be enough to turn me away from a book, but it was the second paragraph that really drew me in... ...more
Everlast is the story of Allie, who was raised from childhood on the stories of Nerisette believing them to be fairy tales. One day, however, she and her friends are pulled in through a book in the library into the World of Dreams, where Fate rules supreme and Allie is the Crown Princes... ...more
From the moment I read the description of this book I was excited to read it. I am a huge lover of the fairytales and this version where a girl finds herself trapped in another world where she is princess and the girl who tormented her is her maid was too good to pass up. I have to say, it didn’t... ...more
Life was not exactly a fairy tale for Allie,
but in fairy tales she did believe.
Raised with stories every girl loves,
tales her mother shared,
so full and rich with love.
But fairy tales of a secret land they turned out to be.
As she and her friends are sucked onto the scene,
which is the fantasy of e... ...more
I tend to enjoy the books which come out of Entangled Press, but this was the first one I've read from their Teen series. I wasn't quite sure what to expect.
Lovely. That one word wraps up EVERLAST pretty well.
The story centers around a modern day girl, Allie, who's swept away into a fantasy worl... ...more
This is a adorable and very entertaining book. Allie has no confidence in herself in terms of beauty and spunk. She believes her friend Win only sees her as one of the guys and that she is just meant to be a geek. That is until a strange occurrence happens in the library. A book of fairytales she... ...more
I read somewhere that this was a Middle Grade level book and who knew middle Grade books were so intense?! Not me, that’s for definite.
Honestly, I’ll be the first one to admit that until fairly recently, I thought that Middle Grade books dealt with less intense subjects, something that would be a... ...more
Everlast (The Chronicles of Nerissette) is the first book in Andria Buchanan's series about a young girl who soon finds herself (along with her classmates), with the magic of a dusty old book, transported to the magical realm of Narissette where karma rules and your social status is determined by... ...more
Allie was a fairly normal teenager until one day, she and some friends "Opened the book...fell through the hole in reality, woke up here." Here would be Nerissette, a place that Allie had only read about as a fairy tale. Now, she and her friends are trapped there and she is to become their queen.... ...more
"All Allie wanted to do was get her group project done and figure out a way to get out of the friend zone with her best friend, Winston. That all changes when she opens an old fairy tale book and her and her group are sucked into that world. Now, they are in Nerissette, and a cat is telling Allie... ...more
OH WOW, OH WOW!!!
I so loved reading every word in this sweet, mysterious, magical world of a ride through a Fairy Tale Book and of all things, your in the library!
Author Andria Buchanan has put some new spins, well at least to me on my way of looking at our telling of fairy tales. Her way of wri... ...more
