Description

A sapphic twist on the classic fairy tale Snow White and Rose Red, perfect for fans of Holly Black

The western wood is where Ro's father built their garden, taught her to forage, and told her tales of the faeries who live there—how to summon them, how to protect herself, and warnings of what they are capable of. Now, her father is gone, the garden has withered, and their family is struggling. Her mother and sister want to move into town, but Ro doesn't want to give up the memories of her father and his stories—or the charming village girl who shares Ro's love of the trees. The forest isn't ready to let Ro go either.

One winter night, on her way home from foraging, Ro encounters a bear attacking a fox. She fights the bear to save the fox's life, only to see the bear turn into a boy after her sister shoots him with an arrow. When the boy wakes, he has no memory of who he is—all he knows is Ro's name and that he has to kill the fox.

Ro never believed in the faeries from her father's stories, but she can't deny the magic surrounding her and that both the boy and the fox are victims of a faerie curse. She'll have to remember everything her father taught her in order to extract herself from this deadly game and keep her precious fox out of harm's way.

Call Forth a Fox is a beautiful fairytale retelling featuring lovable queer characters. This read is great for lovers of cozy fantasy and puts empathy and love at the forefront of the story. I see many of the teen readers at our high school being very excited to read this.

A gorgeous retelling of a classic fairytale with exquisite prose, lovely characters, and wonderful queer representation that readers of all ages will connect with. I will definitely be selling this to young readers looking for an atmospheric, romantic story fit for a new generation of fairytale lovers. Markelle Grabo is a gifted author, and I can't wait to read and sell her future books!
