Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "It's true: everyone loves a character who's a little bit bad. In the case of these 13 tales, that's often a lot bad: collection editor and contributor Ameriie pairs 13 authors with 13 BookTubers tasked with creating stories that feature infamous villains from literature and fairy tales. The concept here is that the BookTuber provides the prompt, the author writes the story, and then the BookTuber provides commentary. Some prompts are more detailed than others, and inevitably, the best stories are often from the simplest plots: standouts include Susan Dennard's Shirly and Jim (a young Moriarty), Cindy Pon's Beautiful Venom (Medusa. Go!), Samantha Shannon's Marigold (Erl Queen retelling in nineteenth-century London), and Andrew Smith's Julian Breaks Every Rule (A psychopath in a futuristic setting). A diverse array of high-profile authors are showcased (i.e., Renée Ahdieh, Adam Silvera, Victoria Schwab, Nicola Yoon), and the inclusion of the BookTubers is an interesting idea that allows for a range of perspectives. The concept alone is enough to draw readers, so stock up it's never been so fun to be bad.--Reagan, Maggie Copyright 2017 Booklist"
