About the Author

"McLemore weaves in powerful themes of identity, family, and first love, but there are also much-needed messages about overcoming hurtful stereotypes and expectations. McLemore's poignant retelling is a must-read for fans of fantasy and fairy tales." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Any fan of McLemore's body of work, Bone Gap by Laura Ruby, or Malinda Lo's fantasy will revel in this novel. A magical and lovely first purchase for all YA shelves." --School Library Journal, starred review

"McLemore is at her finest; she twines Latino folklore through the fairytales of Swan Lake and Snow White & Rose Red to create a story that is wholly original... [McLemore] offers up something that's vibrant, wondrously strange, and filled to the brim with love of all kinds. --Booklist, starred review

"One of the most beautiful books I've ever read, bright with hope and brimming with love. Powerful and unforgettable, this mesmerizing fairy tale made my heart ache and my spirit soar." --Claire Legrand, author of Furyborn

"McLemore's novel weaves an unforgettable story about the bond between sisters and the daring to rewrite your destiny." --Zoraida Córdova, author of Bruja Born

"Mesmerizing and absolutely beautiful. McLemore has created a fairy tale for the modern age." --April Tucholke, author of Wink Poppy Midnight

"Some authors write amazing characters. Some authors are beautifully atmospheric. Anna-Marie McLemore is the rare author that combines both skills...This story swallowed me into itself until I felt the aches of every character as deeply as my own." --Amanda Quain, One More Page Books
