In this second book in a series that Kirkus Reviews calls a “fast-paced combination of middle school realism and fairy-tale fantasy,” it’s up to Rory to save the Ever After School—and deal with her father’s fiancée.

After taking part in a successful real-life fairy tale, Rory Landon is now an Ever After School veteran. She has better friends than she’s ever had, and she’s stronger, more confident, and ready to take on whatever comes next.

Or so she thought. When a nefarious plan from The Snow Queen threatens the entire Ever After School program, it is up to Rory and Chase to save everyone. Between this new adventure and what is happening at home—where a potential stepmom has entered the picture—Rory wonders if she really has what it takes to come to the rescue.

About the author

Shelby Bach grew up reading every book she could find and writing stories in battered notebooks. She also rarely came home with a clean shirt and had a lot of accidents that ended with a hunt for Band-Aids. Nowadays, she writes on her laptop rather than in a notebook, but not much else has changed. She is the author of the Ever Afters series, which includes Of Giants and Ice, Of Witches and Wind, Of Sorcery and Snow, and Of Enemies and Endings. She lives in Charlotte, North Carolina.

"While most books have one story, this has eighteen… Most of them are fairy tales, but some are adventure stories. All are wonderful." —San Francisco Book Review (5/5 Stars) 

From Giant Killer Jack and The Last Voyage of of Sinbad to the World's First Story, this chapter book of adventures will keep you turning pages.

Written by an award-winning author and storyteller, this collection of framed stories will be enjoyed by young people and parents of all ages. 

A flash flood rips a Prince and Princess from their carriage. Lost and alone in the deluge, they find refuge in a barn filled with strangers. Gathering around the fire to keep warm, one by one these unknown women and men began to tell their stories.

Some of the stories are familiar, while others are unexpected, whimsical and fantastic. 

Every Hero Has a Story</b> is designed to be read to young children or read by older children. Parents and youngsters alike will delight in the stories as the tales spin. By the end of the evening the stories have done more than just pass the time, they have changed the lives of the Prince and Princess forever.

"You've heard of books that are meant to be read across an entire state? This is a book that can be read across an entire family."

Based in New England, Mark Binder tours the world sharing his spoken and written stories with listeners of all ages. In this collection you'll "hear" his version of Jack and the Beanstalk ("Giant Killer Jack"), and learn the origin of "The First Story." You'll smile at the wisdom of a young girl in "The Contest," and catch your breath at "The Short Tale of Erika P. Spunk." There's even a new addition to the Arabian Nights with "The Last Voyage of Sinbad the Sailor."

Binder blends and dances between genres. He makes traditional stories sound modern and invents new stories that sound as if they have been retold for a hundred years. 

At the heart of the book, weaving in and out, is the "frame tale" of the Prince and the Princess, who grow beyond their remoteness and isolation and are touched, moved and transformed by the stories they hear, and the stories that they themselves tell.

Mark Binder is an author and storyteller who knows how to connect generations. It is a true testament to his passion and talent that he is able to reach the hearts and minds of such diverse audiences

His most recent book is Cinderella Spinderella.
