This touching and evocative debut novel tells the story of 10-year-old Pia, a half-English girl living in the German village of Bad Munstereiffel in the late 1990s. During a holiday parade, a little girl dressed like Disney’s Snow White goes missing. Pia and her socially outcast schoolmate team up to uncover the horror that lies beneath the surface of the village. Filled with folktale allusions and fairy-tale innuendo blended with childhood fears and very real horror, Helen Grant’s thriller is unforgettable. Narrator Justine Eyre reads the story with a storyteller’s soothing elegance. Her portrayals of the characters, the children and adults, English and German, are believable and fully human, making for a compelling book. S.E.S.
