"The unpredictability of the story made it a fun read that kept my attention throughout. The twists and turns kept the story engaging while the overall story had me wanting more. The story starts more like the traditional tale of Snow White and morphs into something completely new and different adding a lot more magic and mystery. By the end of the story you'll be asking yourself just what side you're on...” – The Book Curmudgeon Most know the story of Little Snow White. But what if that’s only half of the real tale? The story is so much more than a witch, an apple and a mirror -- and the truth is rarely so simple. Agrippine, the Queen of Arcana, a once innocent child with a future full of promise, suffers a terrible tragedy and abusive past. After being traded to the neighboring kingdom by her father as political leverage, Agrippine relies on the Dark Arts and blood magic – her only lasting tie to her mother and her childhood - to rule the kingdom under a reign of terror. Genevieve, a spoiled princess unconcerned with her kingdom’s distress, lacks compassion and understanding for the queen she will need to become in order to usurp her evil-stepmother. Being queen is a job she doesn’t want. Too much responsibility. Too difficult a task. But when the Agrippine is advised to kill Genevieve in order to preserve her power, the princess must flee the castle to escape imminent death. Left to survive on her own, Genevieve must step out of her world as a self-consumed princess to discover her inner strength and learn what it means to sacrifice in order to save herself and her kingdom. Through a series of choices, encounters, and devastating losses, these two women, who seemingly have their destinies determined, change the course of their fate to create their own version of happily ever after.

Thinking Outside the Girl Box is a true story about a remarkable youth development program in rural West Virginia. Based on years of research with adolescent girls — and adults who devoted their lives to working with them — Thinking Outside the Girl Box reveals what is possible when young people are challenged to build on their strengths, speak and be heard, and engage critically with their world. Based on twelve years of field research, the book traces the life of the Lincoln County Girls’ Resiliency Program (GRP), a grassroots, community nonprofit aimed at helping girls identify strengths, become active decision makers, and advocate for social change. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, the GRP flourished. Its accomplishments were remarkable: girls recorded their own CDs, published poetry, conducted action research, opened a coffeehouse, performed an original play, and held political rallies at West Virginia’s State Capitol. The organization won national awards, and funding flowed in. Today, in 2013, the programming and organization are virtually nonexistent. Thinking Outside the Girl Box raises pointed questions about how to define effectiveness and success in community-based programs and provides practical insights for anyone working with youth. Written in an accessible, engaging style and drawing on collaborative ethnographic research that the girls themselves helped conduct, the book tells the story of an innovative program determined to challenge the small, disempowering “boxes” girls and women are so often expected to live in.

Aishwaryaa Rajinikanth Dhanush

Director, dancer, goodwill advocate for the United Nations: Aishwaryaa Rajinikanth Dhanush is so much more than the daughter of a legendary actor, or the wife of southern cinema's biggest star. Growing up in Bangalore and then Madras, in a household that resolutely kept out any hint of her father's superstardom, she was a quiet, introverted child whose greatest pleasure was a visit to Marina Beach and an occasional meal out. It was not cinema but law that became a preoccupation when she started thinking about college and career - but fate, and her mother, had other plans for her. Aishwaryaa writes with disarming honesty about life as Rajinikanth's daughter, of falling in love and raising two boys with Dhanush, of fighting her own demons and finding satisfaction in a career of her choice. She reflects on the many roles a woman has to juggle at home and outside - in her case, under the watchful gaze of cameras and celebrity-watchers. Intensely personal, but also inspirational, Aishwaryaa's memoir is an unusually frank insight into growing up in cinema-land. A playful meditation on the joys and difficulties of being a woman in this age, Standing on an Apple Box is as much a celebration of individual fulfilment as it is of family.
