As a lover of Fairy Tales, I was immediately drawn to this one. It's an interesting take on an old story. This story is absolutely modernized, but the element of the original still remains. A girl who turns into a swan at the first light of day. Only this story has two, Odette and Odile. Odile's self pity of herself is something anyone with siblings that are more popular than they are can relate to, as is the oblivion Odette has of the entire situation. The fact that Odile shares Odette's situation in this story opens her eyes to all the things her self loathing prevented her from seeing. I liked how the story is told from multiple points of view while still remaining in the third person. The chapters are labeled by the character starring in that part. It was a refreshing change from the norm. I never really understood Benno's actions, but I understood Odile's ultimate decision. I do hope Cindy will write a sequel, a brand new fairy tale in which the White Swan and the Black Swan will be together again. I give this book 5 of 5. My 6 year old said to give it a 10 >^.^<
