Always a fan of re-told fairy tales, I was not disappointed with this one. Based on "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" by the Brothers Grimm (one of my all-time favorites), this version takes place in the speakeasies and dance halls of the Roaring Twenties. Valentine's rather quirky, and very parenthetical, writing style suits the fairy tale nature of the re-telling and successfully immerses the reader in 1920s Manhattan. A fun read!
