Book excerpt: “A mashup of the original seven swan brothers fairy tale, ingeniously woven with new twists” from the bestselling author of Enchanted and Hero (VOYA). The Woodcutter sisters (named after the days of the week) return for more charming adventures. In this delightful third book, Alethea Kontis weaves together some fine-feathered fairy tales to focus on Friday Woodcutter, the kind and loving seamstress. When Friday stumbles upon seven sleeping brothers in her sister Sunday’s palace, she takes one look at Tristan and knows he’s her future. But the brothers are cursed to be swans by day. Can Friday’s unique magic somehow break the spell? “Magical adventure, occasional humor, and moments of gentle romance make this a good choice for younger to mid-teens. Enchanted, Hero, and now Dearest will be at home in most libraries.”—School Library Journal “If you’re looking for something fun and whimsical set in the framework of a fairy tale, look no further than an Alethea Kontis novel. Kontis excels at mixing together tales and making them work together. Her books are always a delight, and Dearest is no exception.”—A Backwards Story “With her trademark wit and clever world building, this will easily appeal to fans of the series as well as readers who love fractured fairy tales.”—Booklist
