I have to start out by saying Aladdin is my favorite Disney movie of all time. When my friend bought me this book for my birthday, I was suspicious. Would I like a retelling? Or is the magic I love so much in the Disney story be lost among a new storyline?
I ABSOLUTELY LOVED it!!! This book was fantastic! The first bit was basically word for word of the movie but once Aladdin hits the Cave of Wonders, that's when the new storyline begins. The author does an incredible job at bringing a whole new magic to the story of Aladdin. I loved the new characters and the backstory she gave Aladdin & Genie, and the new character development she added to characters. Jasmine is a total badass. Aladdin is no longer a guilty liar. Readers get to see the madness of Jafar.
I would highly recommend this novel to anyone who loves Aladdin or readers who enjoy novels of impoverished rebellion. This was so much better than I ever expected it to be. I don't usually reread books (because there are so many I want to read) but his book I will probably reread in a few years.

Loved every minute of this book. Hated that it ended so soon. But as they say, all good things come to an end.
