Half Upon a Time by James Riley, 385 pages, read by Melody, on 02/18/2012

One of this year’s Mark Twain nominees Half upon a Time is the story of a girl, May, from our world dropped (literally) into the fairy tale world.  Her grandmother was kidnapped, she is being hunted by a creepy guy, and everyone assumes she is a princess, a pretty rough day for May.   She is joined on her attempts to rescue her grandmother by a boy named Jack, of beanstalk fame, the Wolf King, and even a real prince.  The characters are charming  and the story paces well.  Fun read.
