Are you a teen who has read this book or wants to? Sign up to join the discussion! This feminist retelling of 'Snow White' begins with sixteen-year-old Mina motherless and controlled by a cruel father who cut out her heart and replaced it with glass. Mina becomes a fierce queen and stepmother to fifteen year-old Lynet, a girl made from snow in the image of her deceased mother. Stepmother and stepdaughter, destined to be rivals from the start, must find a way to remake their story and save themselves.
