Jodi Picoult goes YA! I've been excited about this one for quite a while, since my YA-loving self has been reading Jodi Picoult since I actually was a young adult.
For this novel, Jodi teams up with her daughter, Samantha van Leer, for their take on the classic fairy tale.
Mostly, I hope Sammy keeps writing. Any novel at her age (she's a high school junior)--or at any age for that matter--is impressive, and I hope to see her storytelling grow and mature as she continues. Actually, I'd love to see her try her hand at screenwriting.
*How is it possible that this incredibly commercial YA novel is able to have multi-colored text and sell for roughly $15 and Hemingway's The Sound and the Fury--released now in color as he originally intended it--is going for $345? Grr. It's not that I don't see the value of one over the other, I'm just so sad that I can't afford the colored Hemingway.
