Book Review: Stitching Snow

Stitching Snow by R. C. Lewis (Hyperion) 2014.  336 pages.  Grades 7& up.

Stitching Snow

Stitching Snow is a clever retelling of the fairy tale, Snow White.  Essie is a fiercely independent heroine who trusts no one and rightly so.  An act of kindness draws her back into a life that almost killed her the first time and one she swore to keep away from all costs.

Essie’s life is far from perfect.  She lives on Thanda where the temperatures are often below freezing, the mining colony of men need her technical expertise but hate her independence and she earns extra money by participating in brutal cage fights.  Yet, this is the one place she feels safe.  Every thing changes when Dane’s ship crashes near her home .  Essie is forced to face her past and embrace the destiny she struggled to avoid for the last eight years.
