"Arnold uses an intriguing blend of magic realism, lyrical prose, and imagery that evokes intimate physical and emotional aspects of young womanhood. A timely and unabashedly feminist twist on a classic fairy tale."--Kirkus Reviews
"It's unsettling how seamlessly Arnold incorporates dark fantasy elements of beastly wolves and cunning hunters into her all-too-realistic tale. A fantastic novel in the #MeToo era, empowering women to share their stories by reaching out, speaking up, and demanding a change."--School Library Journal (starred review)
"This will satisfy readers looking for a vengeful overthrow of the patriarchy that recasts the victims as the victors."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
