Set in the world of the Newbery Honor-winning Ella Enchanted, this tale by beloved author Gail Carson Levine stars a clever heroine who is determined to defy expectations--and outwit a fairy's curse. Evie is happiest when she is healing people, diagnosing symptoms and prescribing medications, with the help of her devoted friend (and test subject) Wormy. So when Wormy unexpectedly proposes to her, she kindly turns him down; she has far too much to do to be marrying anyone. And besides, she simply isn't in love with him. But a certain meddling fairy named Lucinda has been listening in, and she doesn't approve of Evie's rejection. Suddenly, Evie finds herself transformed from a girl into a hideous, hungry ogre! Stuck in this new and confusing form, Evie now has only sixty-two days to accept another proposal--or else be stuck as an ogre forever.

Booklist Review: "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.--Maggie Reagan Copyright 2018 Booklist"
