I received this book from the amazing LibraryThing in exchange for a fair and honest review. BTW, it comes out tomorrow, so if it’s not on your list yet to read, add it nowwwwwww!
Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi is kind of like a modern day Snow White, but with lots of alterations. The story is told mainly by Boy, who is actually a girl, who escapes from an abusive father and makes a new life in a small town in Massachusetts. Boy marries and inherits a stepdaughter, Snow, who is pretty much the most perfect person ever. But when Boy and her husband have a child of their own, a family secret is revealed that causes many of the family relationships to be strained.
Boy, Snow, Bird is unique. It’s part Snow White, part family secret, but it’s all worth the read.
Have you read any books that have part of a familiar tale woven in?
