Curses! Foiled Again - Jane Yolen, Mike Cavallaro
Aliera doesn’t really know how she feels about being the Defender of the Faerie world. She does know that she wants Avery to stop following her around though. She is so sick of him insisting on helping her. She doesn’t want anything to do with that troll.But, after she and her family are put in grave danger she doesn’t really have a choice. She has to come to terms with her role in the world and start acting like the Defender she is.Aliera gets some support from her best friend and cousin Caroline, but also suffers a great betrayal from someone she has trusted for years. Even a prophecy from Baba Yaga doesn’t help her guess what’s in store for her in the future. But, one thing is for sure - she’ll have Caroline and Avery by her side for the next battle.CURSES! FOILED AGAIN isn’t as good as the first one in the series. But, that’s just my opinion. I’ve seen other reviews that said just the opposite. What do you think?
