Okay, this is probably the most challenging challenge day of the challenge. And yes, I am aware that I just said challenge three times in a sentence.
I have looked and looked and looked and I can't seem to find anyone who has done a re-telling of a holiday story. I have found plays and movies, but no books.
So, I was faced with a dilemma and came up with a solution. There is a fairy tale, the Snow Queen, that always reminds me of Christmas. I have found a few re-tellings of said fairy tale and I have chosen the one that sounds the most interesting to me. That story is...
"Family secrets. Lost memories. And the arrival of an ancient magical ability that will reveal everything.
Sixteen-year-old Katla LeBlanc has just moved from Los Angeles to Minnesota. As if it weren’t enough that her trendy fashion sense draws stares, Katla soon finds out that she’s a Stork, a member of a mysterious order of women tasked with a very unique duty. But Katla’s biggest challenge may be finding her flock at a new school. Between being ignored by Wade, the arrogant jock she stupidly fooled around with, and constantly arguing with gorgeous farm boy and editor-in-chief Jack, Katla is relieved when her assignment as the school paper’s fashion columnist brings with it some much-needed friendship. But as Homecoming approaches, Katla uncovers a shocking secret about her past — a secret that binds her fate to Jack’s in a way neither could have ever anticipated. With a nod to Hans Christian Andersen and inspired by Norse lore, Wendy Delsol’s debut novel introduces a hip and witty heroine who finds herself tail-feathers deep in small-town life."
