Bound by Donna Jo Napoli
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I think I read this book years ago and never recorded it. But it was a pleasant re-read! I'm always interested in reading re-workings of fairy tales.
Xing Xing is a servant to her step-mother and step-sister since her father has died. She ends up finding her way to attend a festival in town and the prince falls in love with her because of a beautiful yellow slipper she left when leaving.
Poetry, spiritualism, and unexpected cruelty here, too.
