2012 book 131

Jackson Pearce's Purity
An excerpt of this was featured on Jezebel last month, but when it popped up in my RSS reader, I didn't realize it was a novel and was like, whoa, this story is crazy. Unfortunately, the book doesn't live up to the premise and is completely and thoroughly predictable. Frankly, it almost reads like a Disney Channel movie (though slightly more sex-positive than anything on that channel could ever be). It was all very . . . blech-y. Pearce has written a couple of pretty-good takes on fairy tales that are worth checking out, but this is one to avoid. C.
