This could have been so good, Jack and the Beanstalk as a girl combined with Robin Hood-genius. Robin Hood is second only to pirates in my mind, which is what is garnering this book at least 3 stars. Everything felt too rushed to be enjoyed and overstated. I know it's supposed to be short, but I dig short stories, this felt like a truncated long story. The problem is in all the times there were statements like "she was the serious twin" instead of story that showed her being serious.
