2012 book 317

Jane Yolen's Briar Rose
After reading that Patricia Wrede book the other day and getting mad that this isn't available for Kindle, I dug out my old paperback copy. It's the first time I've read it in YEARS--since before this blog existed, maybe?--though I read it over and over in middle school and high school. Only Jane Yolen would take the assignment to write a new version of a fairy tale and turn it into a (fairly haunting) Holocaust story. I didn't remember much of the story going in (though it really all came rushing back) but I do think it still holds up.
