Overview

With aspirations of being an animator, sixteen-year-old Nivi Nash thought she knew all about fairy tales. Take one beautiful damsel in distress, add a charming hero, and don’t forget a cackling villain. Throw in some pretty colors, a few songs, and mix well.

But caught in a real one, she learns the hero—though still hot—isn’t always charming, the story far from pretty, and the villain absolute evil. On the run for her life in a stolen SUV, she isn’t worried about her beauty, but happily ever after? Yes, she wants that the most. It means she’ll live.

The kiss always at the end of these tales?

Most of the time, okay maybe half of the time, the thought of that lip lock is far, far away where these stories are supposed to be. But tied to a stake on the side of a snowy mountain, the thought of her not-so-charming hero’s kiss burns away the reality of the knife hovering above her skin.

Appropriate for grade nine and up.

Nivi's already having a hard time living with her dad after her mom died, but then her dad marries his newest girlfriend. Nivi wants to build a relationship with her dad so she tries to get along with her super stuck-up stepmom. But Mali (her stepmom) is way too pushy. She wants Nivi to wear high fashion and even tells her what to eat. She even sends Nivi fruit delivered by a seriously hot dude. But just like Mali's reflection (Nivi sees different faces when her stepmom looks in the mirror) things are not what they appear and this story quickly turns into a fun fast paced chase. I really liked the parallels to Snow White in this story. Nivi seemed very real. She was slightly snarky, but not overly so. I also felt for her being stuck living with her father. The mysteriousness of the love interest kept me intrigued along with his care of Nivi. The fast pace kept the story moving and kept me up too late. And the ending twist was really cool.
