Please enter the email address that you use to login to TeenInk. Fairest: An Unfortunate Fairytale. True to its title, this novel is one of the fairest of its kind.
Fairest is the story of a year-old girl, Mina Grime, who is under a family curse to live out each of the Grimm fairytales in our very own 21st century.
Mina is a descendant of the original brothers Grimm, who made a deal with the Fae mystical creatures to play the role of a character in each fairytale — or die trying. As an added motivation for the Grimm to complete the tales, if he or she dies, the curse falls to the next living relative. Despite the fact that all the Grimms before her have failed, Mina makes decent headway in the novel.
Intriguing, right? Everyone loves a good fairytale, and modern twists on classic stories are all the rage in teen media. This work of fiction could take my top ten — if only it were legible. In fact, she likes to stick one in a location just like this one? And a comma right, here. Instead, take them as a warning to prepare you. Give Hahn a good editor and perhaps a bit more time to edit the work herself , and she could really make a name for herself.
For now, I ask that you give Fairest a chance — just put away any grammar-Nazi tendencies first, keep your eyes out for context clues, and focus on the excellent story instead of the less-than-excellent punctuation. Which of your works would you like to tell your friends about?

I really liked this book. It wasn't what I expected after reading the first one. I really liked the way the friendship between Mina and Nan developed and how they had to overcome some issues that are typical with teenagers. Great book! Can't wait for the next one!
