    Harper has learned how to fight. Not physically—her cerebral palsy makes that hard—but against the fear she feels every day for her mom, who's dying of cancer, and her brother, who's keeping their family afloat through any means. When she tries to stop an attempted kidnapping on the frigid streets of D.C. one night, Harper finds herself transported to the cursed world of Emberfell. Here Prince Rhen repeats the autumn of his eighteenth birthday—every year, when winter comes, he transforms into a vicious monster. All that's left is a dwindling hope: if a girl falls in love with him, the curse will break. But in more than 300 years, none has. Harper's cerebral palsy, while mild, is treated as an afterthought, often unmentioned even in high-action scenes, and thin characterizations and a high-page count stall this Beauty and the Beast retelling. Still, the approach is compelling, and Kemmerer manages to put a fresh twist on an old story. High-concept fairy tales are popular, and younger fans of Sarah J. Maas will be eager for this one. Grades 7-10. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
