In Enchantasia, becoming a legendary prince or princess doesn’t happen overnight. Enter Royal Academy, the training ground for the fairy tale leaders of tomorrow!

But Devin has major reservations about her new school and her royal future. How can she be a princess and the best creature caretaker Enchantasia has ever seen? It doesn’t help that there’s something seriously weird about RA’s headmistress. Olivina seems obsessed with preparing students for possible attacks from villains (“A royal can’t rule when they’re stuck in a tower!”) Devin gets that being Snow White and Rapunzel’s fairy godmother has probably made Olivina pretty paranoid, but anytime someone steps a toe out of line, Olivina becomes more of a fairy nightmare than a fairy godmother.

Something isn’t right with this lady, and Devin is determind to find out what. But what Devin discovers could change the fairy tale world forever…

Jen Calonita is the author of the Secrets of My Hollywood Life series and other books like Sleepaway Girls and I’m with the Band. Fairy Tale Reform School and Royal Academy Rebels are her first two middle-grade series. She rules Long Island, New York, with her husband, Mike; princes, Tyler and Dylan; and their two Chihuahuas, Captain Jack Sparrow and Ben Kenobi. The only castle she’d ever want to live in is Cinderella’s at Walt Disney World. She’d love for you to visit her at jencalonitaonline.com and on Twitter @jencalonita. 

Jen will be the first author to appear in our new Literary Lunchbox Series in conjunction with the Sanibel Community House. This series will feature a variety of best-selling, nationally known authors discussing their books, writing careers and in Jen’s case, fostering the love of reading in the young people in our lives. Tickets are $25 each and include a copy of Misfits (Hardcover $16.99), the first installment in Jen’s new series, Royal Academy Rebels and a boxed lunch provided by the Sanibel Deli and Coffee Factory. Discussion will be followed by an opportunity to have your book personalized. Tickets can be purchased at MacIntosh Books and Paper or by calling 239-472-1447.
