Of Giants and Ice by Shelby Back - OPTIONAL

Bach, Shelby Of Giants and Ice, 343 pgs. Simon & Schuster, 2012. $15.99.  

Language: G; Mature Content: G: Violence; PG   

EAS is an after school program for special kids who might just be fairy tale characters.  As they wait to find out what their tale will be, they learn swordplay, study the stories and make friends with the other children at Ever After School.  Rory is the newest student.  A child of famous parents, she is used to a different kind of attention.  She was recruited for the program when Snow White noticed eleven-year-old Rory see something in a magic mirror, but she is not familiar with the fairy tales, will she recognize her story when it happens?  Will she survive her tale?  

Although many of the characters are in High School (to provide the danger elements) this is an Elementary level story.  It may be exciting for the 4th-6th grade girls, and no previous knowledge of the fairy tales is required, however the book is very slow moving despite a lot of characters.
