"The del Cisne girls have never just been sisters; they're also rivals, Blanca as obedient and graceful as Roja is vicious and manipulative. They know that, because of a generations-old spell, their family is bound to a bevy of swans deep in the woods. They know that, one day, the swans will pull them into a dangerous game that will leave one of them a girl, and trap the other in the body of a swan. But when two local boys become drawn into the game, the swans' spell intertwines with the strange and unpredictable magic lacing the woods, and all four of their fates depend on facing truths that could either save or destroy them... The story of the ugly duckling was never about the cygnet discovering he is lovely. It is about the sudden understanding that you are something other than what you thought you were."--Publisher's description.

Rainbow Reads book for February. Anna-Marie McLemore will be at the Tucson Festival of Books!

Maureen @ Mission: It’s a YA contemporary that mashes together (and subverts) a few different fairy tales like “Snow-White and Rose-Red” and “The Wild Swans.” It’s about sisters and gender roles and magical realism and colorism within Latinx families (the “good” sister is light-skinned and golden...
