A Dangerous New Chapter Begins for Gilboy’s Gracie: Sequel to Unwritten Returns to Fairy Tale World


ST. PAUL, MN, October 28, 2019 – Escaped fairy tale character Gracie is back, but still struggling to move beyond her dark past in Rewritten, the highly-anticipated sequel to Unwritten (2018), coming to bookstores April 7, 2020.

After learning the truth about her own fairy tale,
twelve-year-old Gracie is ready to move on in the real world, but nothing’s going to plan. On the run from the evil queen Cassandra, the characters from Gracie’s story have all been forced to start over, but the story book world isn’t done with them yet. Their story is still being written in Cassandra’s magic book, the Vademecum. As long as Cassandra has the book, none of the characters are safe, including Gracie’s mom and dad.

In a desperate attempt to protect her family and set things right, Gracie finds herself transported into another tale—but this one is a horror story. Can Gracie face her destiny and a deadly wild beast to finally rewrite her own story?
