Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway: Everlast (Andria Buchanan)

Allie Munroe has only ever wanted to belong, maybe even be well liked. But even though she’s nice and smart and has a couple of friends, she’s still pretty much the invisible girl at school. So when the chance to work with her friends and some of the popular kids on an English project comes up, Allie jumps at the chance to be noticed.
And her plan would have worked out just fine…if they hadn’t been sucked into a magical realm through a dusty old book of fairy tales in the middle of the library.
Now, Allie and her classmates are stuck in Nerissette, a world where karma rules and your social status is determined by what you deserve. Which makes a misfit like Allie the Crown Princess, and her archrival the scullery maid. And the only way out is for Allie to rally and lead the people of Nerissette against the evil forces that threaten their very existence.

Find it:

Patricia's a small town girl who was blessed with a large tree in the backyard that was a perfect spot for reading on summer days. Mixed with too much imagination it made her a bratty child but fated her to become a storyteller. After a stint of “thinking practically” in her twenties she earned degrees in Business and Economics and worked for a software firm in southwestern Germany but, her passion has always been a good book. She currently lives in Pittsburgh with her two wonderful kids and a husband that learned the gourmet art of frozen pizzas to give her more time to write. When she's not writing she can be found fencing and arguing with her dogs about plot points. Most days the Beagle wins but the Dalmatian is in close second. She's in a distant third. Patricia writes adult Paranormal under the name Patricia Eimer and writes Young Adult books under the name Andria Buchanan.

Everlast is a fun magical read for any fans of young adult. Allie, the main character, is living a normal life until she and her friends are given a project which lets them visit the library and they find themselves all of a sudden immersed into a new world...a fantasy world. She and her friends have been sent to this world and find themselves as part of a magical realm with queens. 

Allie and her friends are each given a certain role within the kingdom. Allie is named queen. She and her friends immediately become involved in each one of their roles and the reasons they were given them. 

Allie discovers that all is not as it seems in this magical world and she and her friends work together to help discover the threat that has entered the magical world of Nerissette and to overcome this threat. 

This is a cute story with lots of fantasy involved in it. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys young adult/middle grade fantasy.
