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.

For the last five years, 17-year-old Princess Jane has been unable to eat due to the Spell of Without. Cast by young witch Reagan, the Slow spell can't kill Jane, but it has trapped the Queen of Ever in a glass box and withheld love, hope, memory, and sleep, respectively, from Jane's younger sisters upon their 13th birthdays. With only four days to break the spell before it turns True—and deadly—Jane must join forces with Reagan. But breaking it requires discovering the truth about Jane's father, the king, and the reason for the inequality between the monarchy and the hungry townspeople. Haydu (Eventown) peppers the novel, told in alternating perspectives by Jane and Reagan, with familiar fairy tale symbols and tropes made fresh through attention to the inventive history of the witches that protect Ever. Affecting scenes showcase the threat of sexual violence that the kingdom's females face from powerful princes and kings who deem resistors hysterical, and a breathless stream-of-consciousness style echoes the feelings of the two young women contending with Ever's history, outdated beliefs about princesses and witches, and the way forward in a broken kingdom. Ages 14–up. Agent: Victoria Marini, Irene Goodman. (July)
