Title: Snow White & the Seven Angels
Series: Queerky Tales
Author: Rhys Ethan
Genre: Fantasy, Fairy Tale, LGBT, Retelling, Kids’ Books
The classic tales you know, the characters with secrets you don’t
White has a secret. One he has shared with his family to no avail. When he meets the Prince of his dreams, he decides he can no longer live a lie, but in order to do so, he will have to face his worst nightmares.
Queerky Tales is a series of classic fairy tales retold with LGBT characters. Snow White & the Seven Angels is about fighting for your happy-ever-after, whatever shape it comes in.
For children and adults alike.
Snow White and the Seven Angels is an uplifting tale for young and old alike. In the beginning we meet White, a prince who has everything and should be happy. Despite the smiling facade he presents to the world, he harbors a secret pain. Like many LGBT youth, he seeks comfort and understanding from those closest to him, but sadly, does not find it. When true love enters his world, he finds the courage to expose his secret and fight for his own identity. And, Snow is born.
I enjoyed the author’s take on this well loved tale. The classic elements that make the fairy tale unique are included but with their own special twist. Instead of the seven dwarves, Snow is aided by the the Seven Angels who are instrumental in helping her find her destiny. The way each angel was included was cleverly portrayed while showcasing the struggles a transgender youth faces in every day life.
The end of the story is heartwarming and gives hope to all that they too can reach their happily ever after.
