4.0 out of 5 stars
Wonderfully woven tale..., Sept. 26 2008
Story revolves around a young girl with a talent for storytelling, who strikes a bargain with death. Basically it's like what the back of the book says. I bought this book and got exactly what I was expecting; a light read and engrossing story with minor some twists and turns. There were times where I wanted to strangle secondary characters, but overall it's a lovely tale. I highly recommend this book if you're a fan of fairy tales and the concept of 'true love'. Not strictly for young adult readers, although the lack of depth might bother some more mature readers. It's one of those books you read to find out the ending and how everything plays out.
