Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
To save her sisters from a spell that has forced them to be Without, Princess Jane of Ever must work with Reagan, the witch who set the curse on her family.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 May #2
    In the land of Ever, it's been witches versus royals for as long as most living people can remember. They are on opposite sides of the moat and opposite sides of an age-old war that stemmed from the kidnapping of a princess. Reagan, a young witch, cast a terrible spell five years ago, cursing each of the five royal daughters with an inability to do something vital: eat, sleep, hope, love, and remember. Jane is the eldest of those five princesses, and she has not eaten in those five years. As each girl tells her story in alternating chapters, readers find out how Ever became the way it is, and what each side is really fighting for. Haydu's world building is slightly piecemeal, doled out a chapter at a time, and the pace can be slow because of it. The story, which opens with a trigger warning for sexual assault and eating disorders, has qualities of both a classic fairy tale and contemporary retellings, making it ideal for fans of Jennifer Donnelly's Stepsister (2019). Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
