This is a clever fairy tale retelling by a self-published author still in high school. Miss Anthony´s passion for the story and the world she creates shines through on every page and her use of classic fairy tale tropes and characters make this something of a labour of love. Those who love princesses, wolves and castles will love the book, as my young daughter did. Even I, a 43-year-old man, got most of the references (I think!).
Miss Anthony says she prefers to self-publish as she likes to have control over every aspect of her books and that´s a lovely thing to want. However, professional editors and publishers might also help her to better shape and polish her work in the future to best realise her dreams and entertain readers.
I think if Miss Anthony keeps going the way she´s going she´ll be in for some happy endings.
