Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up—Essie is the only female living in mining settlement Forty-Two and earns her keep by "stitching" or repairing junk-tech for the local miners. She is an unwelcome presence, despite her much-needed expertise, and leads a precarious and solitary existence. When a shuttle crashes, leaving a stranger named Dane without a functional ship, Essie begrudgingly agrees to help him. It turns out that Dane is on a search for Princess Snow, the royal heir who went missing eight years ago. Once he realizes that Essie is indeed the princess, he kidnaps her, intending to use her as a bargaining chip in a prisoner swap. Forced to divulge secrets that she has long guarded, Essie convinces Dane that she is no friend of the court and the two join forces. This is a superb sci-fi retelling of "Snow White." Lewis does a marvelous job of slowly revealing the backstory of Essie's royal childhood, her incestuous relationship with the king, and the mystery surrounding her real mother. Inventive nods to the original fairy tale, such as the seven droids Essie built and the death scene of the evil queen, are expertly done. This has strong appeal for sci-fi and fantasy lovers and fans of Marissa Meyer's "Lunar Chronicles" (Feiwel & Friends).—Amy Nolan, St. Joseph Public Library, St. Joseph, MI

Review

"'Snow White' gets an upgrade in this clever, surprisingly gritty science-fiction version."―Kirkus Reviews

"Stitching Snow is a satisfying read for those who appreciate strong female protagonists embedded in plots of intrigue."―VOYA

"Essie's got the wit and strength to compete with any YA heroine, but it's her conflicted feelings toward her father and her willingness to finally save herself that make her memorable. This will certainly ease the wait for readers anxious for Meyer's next installment."―Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"In this interplanetary retelling of Snow White, debut author Lewis reveals a talent for worldbuilding and creating complex, memorable characters. As Essie owns up to her past and takes control of her fate, SF and fairytale fans alike will enjoy watching her beat the odds and find romance in the process."―Publishers Weekly

"This has strong appeal for sci-fi and fantasy lovers and fans of Marissa Meyer's 'Lunar Chronicles.'"―School Library Journal

"[A] gripping story with lots of moving parts and will likely appeal to fans of genre fiction."―Booklist
