Booklist - 08/01/2018 Evie only has one thing on her mind, and that's healing the sick. She isn't expecting her friend Wormy to propose to her, and of course she turns him down. But that answer isn't good enough for Lucinda, the meddling fairy who likes to attend special occasions and give terrible gifts. Outraged at Evie's lack of romantic spirit, she turns her into an ogre and gives her 62 days to accept another proposal—or remain an ogre forever. Undaunted, practical Evie sets to learn what she can from other ogres and then returns to the world of men, where she becomes entangled in a political plot. But her clock is winding down, and every day she doesn't find true love brings her closer to life as an ogre. This prequel to the Newbery Honor Book Ella Enchanted? (1997) is a clever, lighthearted spin on Beauty and the Beast that features a heroine more than capable of choosing her own path. Readers new and old to Levine's world will find much to love. - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
