Cloaked is another modernized fairy tale book; however, it is not just one fairy tale modernized. It is a fusion of many fairy tales, and I actually found the fusion to be smooth, somewhat predictable (but that is expected), and surprisingly good. The book is written from a boy's point of view, but I would say that boys would not enjoy this book. Though, I would say most girls from 6th grade to HS would quite enjoy this book. It is known that a boy usually prefers a book from a boy's perspective; however, a girl will read a book from a girl or boy's perspective. I would also say that this is not a YA book that most adults would find all that great. I know there are several adults that love the YA genre, but I don't think this book would fit for that group of readers. From all of the statements I'm making, you might be wondering why I said it was good. It is a good book, but it is a good book for a certain audience. If you know someone that fits that audience then you should get them this book.
I did say this book is a fusion of several fairy tales. However, it has the foundation of a modernized frog prince story. There were other fairy tales represented, and there were even some fairy tales that are not as popular or well known. I don't want to tell you the other fairy tales that are represented in this story b/c I found that to be part of the fun while reading. It was fun to determine what parts of the story were from what fairy tales.
All in all, I enjoyed this book. I didn't think it was the best written book, but for a MS (middle school) or HS (high school) girl the writing would not bother them. A young girl would actually love the parts of the storyline that I found to be cheesy and a little typical.
