Ever by Gail Carson Levine - ADVISABLE

Levine, Gail Carson Ever, 244 p. Harper, 2009


An immortal boy falls in love with a mortal girl. The only way they can be together forever is if he becomes a champion and she becomes a hero. Both of them must face their greatest weaknesses in order to have a happy-ending.

Instead of rewriting an old favorite, Levine has taken classic themes and created something completely new. While I don't think it is as strong as Fairest or Two Princesses of Bamarre, it is still a lovely fairy tale.
