If the description of “beautifully written queer retelling of a classic but feminist and from a reimagined and now nonwhite side character” piques your interest, I think you will definitely enjoy this book.
Ok. Just a heads up. I love speculative fiction and this book is speculative fiction. Technically, one could call this book horror because some scary stuff happens, but *I* wasn’t scared even if the main characters were so I am not calling it horror.
I honestly can’t tell if this is a great example of its genre (a genre I don’t like based on this example) or this book just isn’t that great.
