Susan Karsten’s Latest Book Review: Summer’s List by Anita Higman

100_7191_00With deft fairy tale touches, Anita Higman has woven a tale with much to please the reader who is looking for a book that is “different” — not the oft-repeated heroine-type, or the oft-used plot structure.  With a unique premise, full of themes which make one want to dig deeper into the pages, Summer’s List is more than a beach read.

The heroine, Summer, who has willingly sacrificed years of her life to her parents and grandmother, promises her grandmother to fly free and do some of those things she missed out on — hence the ‘list’.  Summer reunites with a childhood friend. This friend, a male, has a crazy-type family, with a lot of drama to work through.  Pages fly by, as one drinks in the interesting twists and turns brought by this deft author.

Please leave a comment with the name of your favorite fairy tale or fairy tale author. My favorite: The Steadfast Tin Soldier, by Hans Christian Anderson.
