Similar to Shannon Hale (who wrote The Goose Girl) this story revolves around the retelling of a classic fairy tale. But in this case, what happens AFTER the "ever after". We follow Ardwin on his version of a Hero Journey where life lessons are learned and accepting yourself for who you are is the theme. It took me awhile to get through this book. I guess it just didn't have that spark and pull for me. But it is a good young middle reader book. I would recommend it as such.
