More About the Author

After a decade-long career in Hollywood, Robin Palmer regained her sanity and chucked her cushy network executive job and expense account to become a writer. Which--she quickly discovered once her savings account was depleted--may not have been so sane. Luckily her perseverance (and love of hanging out at home alone all day in yoga pants and no makeup) paid off with the publication of her first YA book CINDY ELLA, the first in a series of modern retellings of fairy tales set in a fictional Los Angeles high school. This was followed by GEEK CHARMING (the basis of the highly rated Disney Channel Original Movie starring Sarah Hyland and Matt Prokop), LITTLE MISS RED, and the recently released WICKED JEALOUS: A LOVE STORY, which is a retelling of Snow White. She also writes a middle grade series called YOURS TRULY, LUCY B. PARKER, about a twelve-year-old girl whose new stepsister is literally the most popular girl in the world because she's a Hollywood superstar. She lives in a pink barn in the Hudson Valley region of New York.

Format: Paperback
Wicked Jealous: A Love Story by Robin Palmer is about a girl named Simone and how she discovers that being yourself and staying true to yourself can lead you to your own true Prince Charming. Simone may have the black hair, the pale skin and the red lips but she also has a love for Tastykate Butterscotch Krimpets and a severe allergy to apples along with a evil stepmother named Hillary. Hillary's determined to marry Simone's dad and make sure Simone doesn't outshine her in the looks department even if she has to kill Simone by running her over with her car, a too tight dress and a cake with apples in it. Wicked Jealous Stepmother much?

Simone wanting to get away from Hillary decides to join a pottery class. However, the class she ends up joining is Zumba (since the pottery class was canceled) and she ends up losing weight and gaining confidence in herself. Simone also makes friends with the Zumba Brigade and with that friendship she gets her very own Zumba Godmothers. She also learns that Cheryl, one of her Zumba Godmothers is the mom of her crush Jason the most popular boy in her grade.

Not only does Simone get her very own Zumba Godmothers, she also gets her very own seven dwarfs when she goes to stay with her older brother Max and his roommates for the summer while her dad and evil Hillary go to Italy together.

Format: Paperback
A fairytale retelling will get my attention every time. Plus, WICKED JEALOUS has an eye-catching cover, with that shiny red apple and cotton candy pink background. Robin Palmer's update of Snow White is timely, clever, and over the top.

I thought the Los Angeles setting worked perfectly. Simone Walker begins the novel unhappy with her looks. And why not when she lives in the epicenter of Hollywood, which favors one look above all others? Hillary, her father's young girlfriend, is never likeable. But it is understandable that she would be driven to compare herself to a teenager. Simone being allergic to apples is a nice update as well.

Simone's outlook on her life changes when she accidentally discovers Zumba. She goes out to take a pottery class or something, but shows up at the wrong time. But Zumba turns out to be exactly what she needs, despite her initial doubts. The exercise helps her become more active and causes her to crave vegetables instead of Tastykake Butterscotch Krimpets. Plus, the Zumba ladies might be older than Simone, but they're a terrific group of friends to have. The more confident Simone starts dressing in a way that suits her curves and attracts the attention of a cute classmate as well as Hillary's jealousy.

Things kick into gear when she moves in with the seven dwarfs. In this case, the dwarfs are Simone's brother and his six roommates: Wheezer, Narc, Noob, Thor, Doc, and Blush. The guys also turn out to be good friends and help Simone navigate problems like how to date popular Jason without looking like a dork. But, as time goes on, Simone realizes she might have more in common with Blush than Jason.

Format: Paperback
Briefly: Simone’s dad is a very busy writer/producer. Ever since his sitcom about a man stuck in a dog’s body has been on TV, Simone has seen less and less of him. Her brother, Max, is in college and lives with his roommates, and now Dad’s girlfriend has maneuvered her way into staying with Simone and her father while her floors are being redone. Not the subtle type, Dad’s girlfriend, Hillary, has made is quite clear (to anyone within a 100-mile radius) that she intends to be the new Mrs. Walker and soon.

Before she quite knows what happened, it is decided (by the master manipulator) that Simone would be so bored on a family trip to Italy, so she should spend a month in the summer with her brother in his house. And Simone’s best friend, Nicole, couldn’t be more happy – she’s had a crush on Max like forever. Plus Nicole is sure this is just what Simone needs to loosen up around guys. Simone, however, isn’t so sure. She’s always self-conscious about her weight, and her bad eating habits have gotten worse since her dad started working so much.

It’s hard for Simone to understand her worth, and even harder for her to get her dad to pay attention and see Hillary for what she is. And when Simone stumbles into a Zumba class, slows down on the junk food and starts seeing herself as valuable, Hillary just may become deadly.

Didja Like It?: Like all of Ms. Palmer’s books, this story is a modern retelling of a fairy tale. It’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs this time, with a twist. Light, with some deeper moments, it’s a cute story that has all of the characters from the original, but maybe not completely in the form that you remember.
