I love me some fairy tales so I knew this would be something I needed to get from local library. It's a quick, light read with some wonderful plays on lesser known, or at least lesser referenced, fairy tales...which is enough to make me giddy. I very much enjoyed that this book was written with a male character, fairy tales aren't just for girls....I mean really all the good ones are awesome and bloody! LOL it was cute and fun. The characters were 17, but they seemed to be written younger, I could see them as 14 or so, but for the whole marriage plots (the standard, if the hero saves the day he wins the princess thing, flipped a bit around.) This is the type of YA that can read young, that some Of my 5th graders could get into. Maybe it's a little bland, but its cute, and chop full of fairy tale allusions.
