In this modern, dark update of the classic Snow White, Boy Novak runs away from her abusive father, and finds solace in a small town in Massachusetts. When she marries Arturo and becomes a stepmother to the loveable Snow, Boy’s personal prejudices are challenged. To say more would be to ruin a big twist that comes halfway through, when Boy gives birth to her own daughter, Bird.

Perfect for:

  • Lovers of modern retellings of classic fairy tales.
  • Readers of darker fiction that explores reinvention.
  • Anyone who enjoys multi-perspective fiction.
