Win a Copy of YA Feminist Fantasy Novel Girls Made of Snow and Glass!

We’re giving away 5—yes, 5—copies of Melissa Bashardoust’s Girls Made of Snow and Glass, a feminist YA reimagining of the classic Snow White story that’s like “Frozen meets The Bloody Chamber.” If you win a copy, you’ll have the book in your hands a whole month before it’s available to the public. All you have to do to be eligible is sign up for The Mary Sue’s weekly newsletter. (If you’ve signed up before, you’re already holding a ticket to Free Booktown.) Here’s how to do the thing.

You did it! Now you’re in the running for a copy of Girls Made of Snow and Glass. We’ll be giving away one copy a week throughout August, up until the book’s release September 5. Amaze your friends and make your enemies envious by flashing your copy of Girls Made of Snow and Glass before it hits the market. (Hopefully your enemies are not holders of magic mirrors and/or poisoned apples.)

Bashardoust’s feminist fantasy upends everything we know about the toxic stepmother-stepdaughter dynamic at the heart of Snow White and “traces the relationship of two young women doomed to be rivals from the start. Only one can win all, while the other must lose everything―unless both can find a way to reshape themselves and their story.” It’s about time Snow White got the update it deserves.

When you sign up for the newsletter, you’ll be automatically entered to win one of the copies of Girls Made of Snow and Glass and other Mary Sue giveaways in the future.
