UnEnchanted is a YA tale of a girl who is completely unaware of who she truely is. Mina is the stereotypical heroine of many of a novel, she is shy, clumsy and does whatever it takes to not be in the spot-light. Yet she finds herself there due to an incident on a school trip that leads her to saving a boy’s life and everything unravels from there. she learns that her mother has been trying to run from what is after them, the Story, Mina has to survive all the tales that her ancestors, the brothers Grimm, had created. If she does so, the curse is lifted, however no one has ever come close, apart from the past Grimm brothers.
The story was rather interesting, nicely done with how Mina was always wanting to be away from the spot light, even when most girls would likely be revealing in it. The tales are all rather classic that the reader will get right away, although there are moments when you wonder why the main character doesn’t seem to realise a certain tale quickly enough.
Nan is Mina’s best friend and they are indeed complete opposites. Where Mina is shy and retiring, Nan is more open and loud. She’s rather ballsy as well which makes her the perfect foil to Mina.
Brody – he’d the love interest and at first he seemed really nice, although he is from a rich family and many would think him spoiled, yet later in the book, he just becomes really irritating. It could be that we just just don’t know that much about him, yet something doesn’t gel well with him.
Jared – he’s a bit of a mystery and yet I found him to be the most important character in the book, he aids Mina when no one else can, he’s able to help her with what she is up against and give her the history of the curse.
We also have Sara, who is Mina’s mum and Charlie, her little brother who doesn’t speak.
The overall story is rather good, there was mistakes about, but not enough to make me lose interest in what I was reading.
The end of the story had a nice twist as well, so hopefully I will be reading the next book.
