Crimson in the Very Wrong Fairy Tale by Liz Jasper
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Crimson in the Very Wrong Fairytale is an entertaining young adult read.
It's also a quick read that I think would appeal to teens who are
interested in a good vs evil fairytale with a twist.
character, Crimson, is a little socially awkward but essentially good.
She has a couple of close friends but secretly hopes to become more
popular with her sixteenth birthday party. Unfortunately for Crimson,
her wish comes true - sort of.
The idea behind the story is
appealing and I found it refreshing that it's almost the opposite of a
fairytale. Instead of just being swept up by a handsome prince and given
every reward imaginable for being a 'good' girl, Crimson is kidnapped
by an evil king (her father) and forced to become the very opposite of
good. At least it looks that way. Like any good tale, it's never really
as obvious as it seems.
This story has the potential to be the
first in a series and I think it could be fairly popular as a series if
it does go that way. The friendship between Tod and Crimson is well done
and could develop into something more romantic if the story continues. I
for one would like to find out.
