"Kalynn Bayron does more than re-write a fairy-tale . . . She breaks it apart and rebuilds it into a wholly original and captivating story where girls finally decide for themselves who lives happily ever after." - Brigid Kemmerer, New York Times bestselling author of A CURSE SO DARK AND LONELY"Flipping the Cinderella tale on its head, Bayron's take challenges patriarchy with kick-butt heroines and a counter-story that will forever change how readers perceive fairy tales." - Booklist (starred review) "Readers looking for dystopia, queer romance, LGBTQ inclusiveness, and women sticking it to the patriarchy will be pleased." - School Library Journal online "A queer dystopian fantasy that questions written history and societal expectations." - Shelf Awareness Pro "Bayron's deconstructive reimagining of the classic fairy tale is ambitious, replacing the happily-ever-after with a tragic legacy and a defiant, feminist tone." - Publishers Weekly online "[A] promising debut . . . twists and turns will keep readers in suspense." - Kirkus Reviews
