Not just another behind the scenes fairy tale tale, Letters to Zell by Camille Griep focuses on the friendship among the four most well-known princesses of Grimmland: Cinderella, Snow White, Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty as they finish their Pages and move into the Happily Ever Afters that usually happen after the story ends. Written in letters to Rapunzel (Zell) who has thrown over her story completely to run a unicorn rescue preserve with her prince, the other three princesses struggle with how they want their lives to go as opposed to how they are written. Laugh-out-loud funny, vaguely raunchy (Snow White has very little filter it seems), and deeply profound, Letters to Zell explores life truths that we all have to figure out, whether we're characters in a book or the humans reading about them. - Schlow Centre Region Library
