Publisher Description

Jack and Sally are "truly meant to be" ... or are they? Sally Skellington is the official, newly-minted Pumpkin Queen after a whirlwind courtship with her true love, Jack, who Sally adores with every inch of her fabric seams -- if only she could say the same for her new role as Queen of Halloween Town. Cast into the spotlight and tasked with all sorts of queenly duties, Sally can't help but wonder if all she's done is trade her captivity under Dr. FInkelstein for a different -- albeit gilded -- cage. But when Sally and Zero accidentally uncover a long-hidden doorway to an ancient realm called Dream Town in the forest Hinterlands, she'll unknowingly set into motion a chain of sinister events that put her future as Pumpkin Queen, and the future of Halloween Town itself, into jeopardy. Can Sally discover what it means to be true to herself and save the town she's learned to call home, or will her future turn into her worst... well, nightmare?

    Way too fanfic like

    I’m kind of surprised by the positive reception this thing received… especially as a TNBC fan. It reads like somebody’s fanfic 90% of the time and like the author just suddenly decided to add the TNBC characters. Also tries way too hard to vilify Dr. Finkelstein and Sally’s origin twist was very reminiscent of Rapunzel. Overall just left very confused plot-wise.

    Couldn’t Put It Down

    I thought I was going to get fire because of this book (reading instead of doing your job is frowned upon). This story held true to the beloved original tale and only brought more loving detail. You can tell how much thought and care when into keeping the characters who they are at their core while still add development and depth. Each new chapter added to my need to know what would happen next. When I wasn’t reading it I was finding ways to talk about it with my friend, family and even customers at work.
