WHATEVER AFTER: Sugar and Spice by Sarah Mlynowski / Cover Reveal / Giveaway

Hello and welcome to today's cover reveal for Sarah Mlynowski's WHATEVER AFTER #10: SUGAR & SPICE! I'm so thrilled to reveal this fantastic cover! Trust me, it will make you want to grab something sweet. 

Check it out below!


This cover is simply perfect! We have loved all the covers for this series, but this one might be our favorite one yet.

A Blurb from Sarah

I’ve had the seeds of the idea for Whatever After since I was six years old. I loved to write stories about a girl named Sarah (yup, I made myself the star of all my stories) who had magic stuff happen to her. In my favorite story, she had a magic fork that could turn broccoli into cotton candy. I also loved telling fractured fairy tales, such as the The Princess and the M&M, instead of The Princess and the Pea, because I wasn’t a fan of peas. Looking back, it seems like a lot of my inspiration stemmed from my distaste for vegetables. Anyway! When I became a writer, I thought: what if I combined these two types of stories? A regular girl could magically fall into a fairy tale, and the very act of falling into the tale would fracture it. And that’s how I came up with the idea for Whatever After.

My sincerest thanks to readers, parents, grandparents, bloggers, librarians and booksellers who have allowed this series to grow and find such a dedicated audience. It feels unbelievable to me that the ideas I had when I was just a kid would grow up to reach the milestone of a ten book series. And now, I am absolutely thrilled to share the cover of Sugar and Spice with you. Not only does the cover feature Jonah for the first time, but look at all that candy! Six-year-old me would be absolutely delighted.

That's the way the cookie crumbles!

Yum! Our magic mirror has dropped me and my brother, Jonah, into the story of Hansel and Gretel. If we're lucky, we may even get to taste the cake-house...

But we didn't count on accidentally getting trapped. The real Hansel and Gretel are on the run, and Jonah and I have taken their place. And the witch is making a kid casserole for dinner...

Now we have to:
- Avoid being eaten
- Pretend our dog is a cat
- Learn to make kale smoothies
- Befriend a talking duck

Or we may never make it back to our home sweet home!


When you pre-order it, be sure to purchase a copy of Upside Down Magic #2: Sticks and Stones, which Sarah co-wrote with Emily Jenkins and Lauren Myracle. It will be out next week on May 31st! You can find out more about the book on Sarah's website, here.

  5. I just finished Genie in a Bottle and didn't have this one on my radar quite yet. I'll have to look for it. 2016 08:23:07
    In Myracle's Genie in a Bottle, Abby was reading this book for a read-a-thon! That was funny. Have you ever done the 48 Hour Book Challenge? Interested in it for next year? Let me know!http://msyinglingreads.blogspot.com/2016/06/sic-transit-gloria-mundi-48-hour-book.html
