Overview

An unforgettable take on a favorite fairy tale by multi-award-winning author Jane Yolen

Summer’s life in the mountains of West Virginia feels like a fairy tale–her parents dote on her, and she’s about to get a new baby brother. But when the baby dies soon after he’s born, taking their mother with him, Summer’s life turns grim. Things get even worse when her father marries a woman who brings poisons and magical mirrors into Summer’s world. Stepmama puts up a pretty face and Summer’s father is under her spell, but Summer suspects she’s up to no good–and is afraid she is powerless to stop her.
