a nice review of Tender Morsels
on Garish & Tweed. Talking about the Grimm tale at the bottom of it:
It feels as though the book is the original, and the story got boiled down and down until it was only that short, odd fairy tale, with all of the important magic and questions and depth of character left out of it.
And this makes me think that it's pitched just right:
In some ways it feels very YA, but a lot of the characters are adult, and although it could be described as a fairy tale retelling, it’s not at all for the same maturity level as something like Beauty or Ella Enchanted - although teens and adults who love stories like those, and can handle a more intense story, will find this very satisfying.
