Cloaked by Alex Flinn - Book Review
Author: Alex Flinn

My Rating: ♥♥♥
I’m not your average hero. I actually wasn’t your average anything. Just a poor guy working an after-school job at a South Beach shoe repair shop to help his mom make ends meet. But a little magic changed it all.
It all started with the curse. And the frognapping. And one hot-looking princess, who asked me to lead a rescue mission.
There wasn’t a fairy godmother or any of that. And even though I fell in love along the way, what happened to me is unlike any fairy tale I’ve ever heard. Before I knew it, I was spying with a flock of enchanted swans, talking (yes, talking!) to a fox named Todd, and nearly trampled by giants in the Keys.
Don’t believe me? I didn’t believe it either. But you’ll see. Because I knew it all was true, the second I got CLOAKED.
This was a cute book. I didn't really know what to expect through this book. I really loved the movie Beastly so I thought a little more of it. But it was an enjoyable read.
Johnny was a strong character. He was pretty slow at figuring out a few things, but he was intelligent. I respect that he only really agreed to marry the princess and take the challenge to help his mother.
I really liked Meg's character. She was mysterious, intelligent and hilarious. I took Johnny a very long time to understand her and the way she felt about him. All the signs were showing in the beginning and he only got them through the ending, boys.
Overall, this was an alright book. I liked the adventure but it wasn't something I absolutely loved.
