I found this story to be a little less formulaic than the other stories I have read by Dickerson.

3/5 stars *Disclaimer:I received a copy of the book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.* Ah the classic retelling dilemma. On one hand I read it because I love the original story so much and don’t really want things changed, on the other if it’s not unique enough it can feel like a wa...
