Sephora Golding lives in the shadow of her unbelievably beautiful mother. Even though they scrape by in the seedier part of Venice Beach, she's always felt lucky. As a child, she imagined she was a minor but beloved character in her mother's fairy tale. But now, at sixteen, the fairy tale is less Disney and more Grimm. And she wants the story to be her own. Then she meets Felix, and the fairy tale takes a turn she never imagined. Sometimes, a story is just a way to hide the unspeakable in plain sight.

Yikes. Only six chapters in, and I was noticing a theme and had an idea of where things were headed. Good thing I checked out some reviews (should've done it earlier, to be honest, but it was on a list from a book-ish place I usually can trust) and found out about the "twist." Definitely don't need any more books about incest, accidental, rape, or otherwise. (See my review of the terrible The Roanoke Girls.) The writing is great, but I just can't do that again/anymore.

Also, I'm going to say it again. I REALLY think books with content like this should come with warnings. Pretty sure if I'd made it to the big reveal, I would've had a full-on panic attack. I've been there before with books with this kind of content. There's GOT to be a way to warn folks without giving things away.

Really explicit and disturbing at parts. The dark fairy tales in between thing was cool, though.
