Aurore ends up in an enchanted forest, the journey through which seems to be an existential mess this went on way too long The ending is a big surprise and there are a lot of plot twists along the way, but, although difficult to accept at first, I find that I really enjoyed the author’s creativity and unique adaptation of this fairy tale. What bothered me most was this one scene where the main character is caught in a hailstorm, where the hail stones are as big as fists.
This book is written in the style of a journal with Aurore recounting the events of her life. Want to Read saving….
There is no inappropriate language and contains nothing more than a sweet kiss. Art meets life, I guess. Cameron has one husband and three cats, and is the author of over a dozen young adult novels.

She goes to a magical forest, meets a guy and brings him out as a hundred years pass. The reason that I gave this book a 4 star rating dokeey not a 5 star rating is the the fact that the author described everything in beauties story which lead up to the prick on the finger.
