trouble with toadsThe Trouble with Toads

Once upon a time a young girl wanted revenge. But first, she wanted to be beautiful.

Twelve-year-old Bettony has read enough stories that begin with ‘Once upon a time’ to know what

happens to the ugly stepsisters at the end, and she’s determined to escape that fate by any means

necessary—even by magic.

Unfortunately, when it comes to magic, there is no place for regret, refunds, or exchanges. Even if you

accidentally turn your older sister into a toad.

If Bettony wants her Happily Ever After to end well, she’s going to have to find a way to turn her sister

back into a person before their mother finds out she’s been dabbling with magic and grounds her for

life.

Tracking down the family magic turns out to be surprisingly easy. Now, if only it came with directions . . .

THE TROUBLE WITH TOADS (45,000 words) is the first book in a new upper MG series The Secret

Stepsister Society. The second book will be released Summer 2013.
 

danyelle Author Danyelle

Leafty

Danyelle Leafty writes upper MG and YA fantasy, and is the author of THE FAIRY GODMOTHER DILEMMA

series. Danyelle has always loved fairy tales, and prefers stories where someone gets eaten, or at the

very least, transmogrified. Much of her inspiration has come from fairy tales, because as G.K. Chesterton

so aptly states, “Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because

they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”

In her spare time, she collects dragons, talking frogs, and fairy godmothers. She also collects books, and

one day hopes to make a house out of them. She enjoys learning languages, fiddling with her harp, and

perfecting the fine art of mothering. (It’s a lot like trying to herd chickens during a lightning storm while

a goat stampede is going on.)

One of her heroes is Albert Einstein, particularly for the following quote: “Learn from yesterday, live for

today, hope for tomorrow. The most important thing is not to stop questioning.”
