Fairest by Gail Carson Levine

This is one of those books that is just so cute. It fulfilled my need for a candy read; by the end I was bored by its easy conclusion. This is definitely juvenile lit, which most (all?) of us appreciate anyway, right? I just want to say that I don't know why anyone would put L. M. Montgomery's fiction in the juvenile lit. category. It has so much substance and real-life sorrows and joys in it. I'm going to reread my favorite book next: The Blue Castle (by Montgomery). Oh yes, after being good and reading this month's book.

I definitely recommend Fairest, written by the author of Ella Enchanted. Her tone is very similar to Shannon Hale's, I would say. What do you guys think?

P.S. This is the retelling of Snow White.
