Rose Daughter

by Robin McKinley

Grade: All right

I loved the sisters, Lionheart and Jeweltongue. The roses were cool. But Beauty and the Beast didn't actually do much or say much, and their romance seemed a bit quick. Technically it was seven months, I guess. But it was also seven days.
Bit slow moving. Good for savouring.

Oh, and there was this one part near the beginning where it was explaining how, at five years old, Beauty didn't understand the fact that her mother had died. Eleanor's four, and I think she'd understand. People just don't get how smart little kids are.
