This book is so unexpected in its prose and story that I almost feel like any review can’t do it justice, but here’s an attempt. Yolen writes under the guise of Terri WIndling’s Fairy Tale Series, a group of books bound by a common theme of traditional fairytales retold for modern times, and brings the tale of Sleeping Beauty/Briar Rose to stark life during the modern era. Her story is set in contemporary times, sometime during the late 1980s/early 1990s, but turns its eyes to the past to examine the events of World War II. Like many of the second generation after the War (and any good fairytale knight), our protagonist Becca finds herself on an unexpected quest after the death of her Grandmother reveals that there were many questions left unanswered about her life before coming to America. Her grandmother always told the story to Becca and her sisters (and their children) the story of Briar Rose, the Sleeping Beauty, but not in the way that most modern tellers are used to hearing. In Gemma’s version Briar Rose’s tale is filled with dark men, symbols of eagles, and a risen fog that puts the princess’ castle to sleep - with only the princess awakening in the end. Becca’s quest for answers leads her inevitably back to Poland, and to Chelmno, one of the most notorious Death Camps operated by the Nazis where extremely few survivors have ever been revealed, and eventually her grandmother’s story is revealed. It is not surprising to readers that Gemma hid her past and chose to forget, but Yolen’s intertwining of her life inside the mysterious roots of folklore is a unique method of exploring themes of trauma and collective memory.

Although a YA book, this was VERY VERY well written, especially the latter part about the holocaust.
I didn't hugely engage with the modern-day bulk of the book (though it wasnt bad, and IS aimed at 13+). Set in a middle class Jewish-American household, grandma is dying and leaves a secret to be uncovered by favourite granddaughter Becca.
This takes her to Poland, the remains of the extermination camp at Chelmno, and an old man who remembers...
After the fairly frothy teen narrative up till now, this is very dark and harrowing, and extremely powerful writing. ( )

Gemma, tell your story again.

I told myself I'd stop reading Holocaust books but this one tricked me into reading it by saying it was a Sleeping Beauty retelling

I mean technically it was but a very brutal one

the good: I liked the way the puzzle/mystery was set up, and gradually finding out what happened, and how it was all related to Sleeping Beauty. (the people who keep sleeping and the kiss that wakes her up? like wow). I also liked the way the Gemma flashbacks were alternating with the present.

the bad: I didn't care about the present-time characters or the romance at all, but then again that wasn't the focus.

TWs: uh, everything? Holocaust, genocide, extermination camps, suicide, homophobia, anti-semitism. you name it. ( )

This interesting story was filled with mystery and intrigue. It was a journey through history and a recollection of some very sad times. I was captivated by the story and became eager to see how everything would tie together.

I really thought the Author did a great job capturing the war feels in her historical retelling, but it lacked emotion. I expected to feel deeply, but it mostly just grazed the surface. I think what caused this disconnect was the flow and writing style. I often became confused as to who was telling which parts and what exactly was going on. It didn’t ruin the story, but it definitely impacted the essence.

Overall, I think there are better reads on this subject matter that pack the gut punch I like with historicals. It’s worth a read if you like mysteries. but don’t expect much in the ways of epicness. ( )

This is not a book you 'really like' because it deals with the holocaust. That said, it was a well written and interesting take on fairy tales and their purpose in society. The story is well told and horrifying, the more so for its elements of truth. ( )

"...(B)oth the oral and the literary forms of the fairy tale are grounded in history: they emanate from specific struggles to humanize bestial and barbaric forces, which have terrorized our minds and communities in concrete ways, threatening to destroy free will and human compassion. The fairy tale sets out to conquer this concrete terror through metaphors." --Jack Snipes, "Spells of Enchantment"
