Product description

Review

"Has everything you'd want in a retelling of a classic fairy tale: a finely-drawn fantasy world, a heroine rarely seen in fiction, and a tortured hero with a secret. I have only one complaint: I wish the sequel were already available!" - Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of A SPARK OF LIGHT and SMALL GREAT THINGS

"Absolutely spellbinding. A Curse So Dark and Lonely expands on all the beloved themes of 'Beauty and the Beast' to create an intensely original retelling: one full of fierce new characters, wicked magic, and wondrous amounts of heart. Brigid Kemmerer doesn't just tell a story, she builds an entire world that you will never want to leave." - Stephanie Garber, #1 New York Times bestselling author of CARAVAL and LEGENDARY

"I couldn't get this creative, suspenseful take on 'Beauty and the Beast' out of my head." - Sara Holland, New York Times bestselling author of EVERLESS

"Slow burning, big hearted, magical fun! I loved every minute." - New York Times bestselling author Wendy Higgins

"Beautifully dark, filled with wild adventure and a modern-day heroine every reader will find a bit of themselves in." - Alexandra Christo, author of TO KILL A KINGDOM

"Harper is the undisputed hero . . . Avoiding disability inspiration tropes, she is a fallible, well-rounded character who fights for the vulnerable and resists being labeled as such herself despite how others perceive her. A fast-paced, richly detailed feminist epic." - Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Heartwarming, thoughtful, and romantic: Brigid Kemmerer took me on a magical journey with this dark fairy tale about growing up, falling in love, and making impossible choices. I can't wait to see where these characters go next." - Jodi Meadows, New York Times bestselling co-author of MY LADY JANE and MY PLAIN JANE

"This enthralling modern fable champions altruism while illustrating intimacy's relationship with honesty, respect, trust, and consent." - Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A complex, creative, and compelling reimagining of Beauty and the Beast." - School Library Connection, starred review

"A fresh twist on an old story. . . . Fans of Sarah J. Maas will be eager for this one." - Booklist

"Kemmerer knows how to blend a compelling story with a swoony romance, and the love triangle that inevitably develops . . . is organic and unforced because of strong characterization." - BCCB

"A unique world filled with fantasy and menace . . . will leave readers anxious to see what happens next." - School Library Journal

"Kemmerer merges modern sensibilities with an epic love story in this Beauty and the Beast retelling." - Shelf Awareness

"Readers looking for a different sort of coming-of-age story or teen protagonists grappling with complex situations will fall in love with this romance-tinged novel." - Starred review, Booklist on MORE THAN WE CAN TELL

"A must-have for any YA collection. Give to teens who enjoyed A Boy Called It by Dave Pelzer or The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky." - Starred review, School Library Journal on MORE THAN WE CAN TELL

"This book is going to fly off the shelves to all teens, but it will hold special interest for those looking for a tear-jerking romance and serious readers of realistic fiction." - VOYA on LETTERS TO THE LOST

"A great concept, delivered in a compulsively readable package . . . romance readers will stay up late to finish this very satisfying and heartfelt read." - Booklist on LETTERS TO THE LOST

"Explores the ideas of carving identity out of pain and the way perception colors expectations." - BCCB on LETTERS TO THE LOST

"Readers will find themselves rooting for the real Declan to win Juliet's heart the same way his online persona did. Consider this tale of modern star-crossed love as a first purchase for YA collections." - School Library Journal on LETTERS TO THE LOST

About the Author

Brigid Kemmerer is the New York Times bestselling author More Than We Can Tell, Letters to the Lost, and the Elementals series. She was born in Omaha, Nebraska, though her parents quickly moved her all over the United States, from the desert in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to the lakeside in Cleveland, Ohio, and several stops in between, eventually settling near Annapolis, Maryland.
