About taken from Goodreads:
It isn't easy being the rather overlooked and unhappy youngest sibling to sisters named for the other six days of the week. Sunday’s only comfort is writing stories, although what she writes has a terrible tendency to come true.

When Sunday meets an enchanted frog who asks about her stories, the two become friends. Soon that friendship deepens into something magical. One night Sunday kisses her frog goodbye and leaves, not realizing that her love has transformed him back into Rumbold, the crown prince of Arilland—and a man Sunday’s family despises.

The prince returns to his castle, intent on making Sunday fall in love with him as the man he is, not the frog he was. But Sunday is not so easy to woo. How can she feel such a strange, strong attraction for this prince she barely knows? And what twisted secrets lie hidden in his past - and hers?

This is a very cute and fun read! We find a little from many of our favorite fairy tales: the prince and the frog, house with looks of a shoe, fairy godmothers, a beanstalk, giant and many more. Yet Ms. Kontis has made them all her own. Lastly we have what we all love in fairy tales, a happily ever after. If you like to read fairy tales, then you must read this book and follow Sunday's adventurous story. I am excited to learn the stories will continue on to the other sisters. Next up will be Saturday Woodcutter. I also hope to read the story of Velius Morana, Duke of Cauchemar. Hope you enjoy this story as much as I have!

Hero (Woodcutter sisters #2) Expected publication: October 1st 2013 by Harcourt Books
