This week’s anticipated future release is:
Title: Stealing Snow
Author: Danielle Paige
Expected Publication: September 16th, 2016
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Seventeen-year-old Snow has spent the majority of her life within the walls of the Whittaker Institute, a high security mental hospital in upstate New York. Deep down, she knows she’s not crazy and doesn’t belong there. When she meets a mysterious, handsome new orderly and dreams about a strange twisted tree she realizes she must escape and figure out who she really is.
Using her trusting friend Bale as a distraction, Snow breaks free and races into the nearby woods. Suddenly, everything isn’t what it seems, the line between reality and fantasy begins to blur, and she finds herself in icy Algid–her true home–with witches, thieves, and a strangely alluring boy named Kai, none of whom she’s sure she can trust. As secret after secret is revealed, Snow discovers that she is on the run from a royal lineage she’s destined to inherit, a father more powerful and ruthless than she could have imagined, and choices of the heart that could change the fate of everything…including Snow’s return to the world she once knew.
This breathtaking first volume begins the story of how Snow becomes a villain, a queen, and ultimately a hero.
I am a super fan of retellings, okay? I don’t know what it is about seeing a classic or fairy tale get all twisted and warped, but I love it! And the darker, the better. I really, really enjoyed Danielle Paige’s take on Oz in Dorothy Must Die. Although there are a ton of Snow White retellings in the world already, I can never get enough.
