Literature: Breadcrumbs

Breadcrumbs is a book written by Anne Ursu and is an American adaptation/retelling of The Snow Queen, with themes of loss, growing up, and friendship.

Hazel and Jack have always been best friends, bonding over their shared love of science fiction and fantasy, wishing they could go to places like Oz and Narnia.

But now that they're eleven, Hazel's mom is pushing her to make some female friends, and Jack is more interested in hanging out with his male friends than with Hazel.

Then Jack is taken away by a woman in white. Hazel assumes she must be the Snow Queen from the fairy tales, and she alone must set off to rescue him. So she does. But what Hazel's looking for and what she finds may not be the same thing...
