Lies, Knives & Girls in Red Dresses by Ron Koertge

Lies, Knives and Girls in Red Dresses by Ron Koertge

Written in free verse, the author presents the "true" stories behind some of the most loved fairy tales. They are darker than Disney versions, so they are meant for older teens. If you like retold fairy tales, try this book.
