2012 book 311

Patricia Wrede's Snow White and Rose Red
Entertaining retelling of the fairy tale set in Elizabethan England, where John Dee's magic sets events in motion. The characters aren't that well-developed but the story moves along quickly. This is part of that fairy-tale series Terri Windling edited, and seems to be the only one available for Kindle--a bummer, because I'd like to revisit Jane Yolen's Briar Rose (I read that over and over again in middle school/high school and have no idea if it holds up).
