Twelve Dancing Princesses: A Tale of Two Novels
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a Young Adult novel with over 500 pages, three happily-ever-after romances, one undead shape-shifter, a re-told fairy tale or two, a cast of dozens (many of whom have names and descriptions, but no active role in the plot), and a boatload of daddy issues, must be in want of an editor.
That being said, Entwined by Heather Dixon is a harmless if lengthy YA book.
If you would like to read a much, much better and briefer re-telling of the Twelve Dancing Princesses, check out Jessica Day George's Princess of the Midnight Ball.
You can thank me later.
