The Shadow of the Bear: A Fairy Tale Retold
By Regina Doman
Once upon a time In New York City, a young, secretive street tough who calls himself, Bear, lands on the doorstep of two teenaged sisters. On the one hand Rose is delighted with his surprising knowledge of literature, poetry, and music; on the other hand Blanche is afraid of his apparent connections to drugs, murder, and a hidden treasure. Even as Blanche learns to trust him, her fears that Bear's friendship threatens their family prove terrifyingly true. The story is based on the traditional fairy tale Snow White and Rose Red by the Grimm Brothers.
