Review of Before the Fairytale: The Girl with No Name

Synopsis: "Banished from her village, a young shape shifter sets out on a journey to find her place in the world...

The first of four "Before the Fairytale" stories, "The Girl With No Name" is told in a deceptively simple storybook style with the flavor of an original Grimm's fable, but don't expect your typical once upon a time scenario. This is a coming of age tale humorously interwoven with social commentary."

My Review: So when the author requested I review this book, I wasn't so sure, the cover didn't do much for me but the name kind of caught my eye and I figured it was a Middle Grade so it wouldn't take much time to read. Boy was I pleasantly surprised! I fell in love with The Girl. It was such a unique story, it moved along nicely and the pages kept turning. I really couldn't put it down and kept reading at work until it was finished. Not much really was happening and you kept waiting for a big event but you never really felt disappointed, just kept the curiosity up. I really would like to know where this series of stories are going and will continue to read them.
My Rating: I really couldn't put this one down and being a MG book it was a short read.  I am really excited to read the rest of the Before the Fairytale Stories.  I give this one a rating of Four Paws and a Stump Wag!
