The biggest lie of all is the story you think you already know. The del Cisne girls have never just been sisters; they're also rivals, Blanca as obedient and graceful as Roja is vicious and manipulative. They know that, because of a generations-old spell, their family is bound to a bevy of swans deep in the woods. They know that, one day, the swans will pull them into a dangerous game that will leave one of them a girl, and trap the other in the body of a swan. But when two local boys become drawn into the game, the swans' spell intertwines with the strange and unpredictable magic lacing the woods, and all four of their fates depend on facing truths that could either save or destroy them.Blanca & Rojais the captivating story of sisters, friendship, love, hatred, and the price we pay to protect our hearts.… (mer)

RGG: Magical fairy-tale re-telling. Complexity of emotions, issues of racism, colorism, gender identity, and romantic feelings make this a YA story. Reading Interest: YA.

I received a copy of Blanca & Roja from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Blanca & Roja is filled with gorgeous, lush prose, tender sisterhood, and a spark of queerness. I really enjoyed it; the story tugged at my heartstrings, and was enjoyable to read. It was, however, a slow read for me because of lyrical, metaphoric way in which it is written. The writing is beautiful, but not to be quickly skimmed. ( )

diverse teen romance with fairytale elements (Latina main characters and LGBTQA interest).
I generally like all of McLemore's books, and also liked this one, but I felt it was a little bit less successful because of how similar all of the narrative voices were--I had to keep checking the chapter headings to see which sister was speaking. It wasn't a huge deal, but for someone that generally has trouble with names and telling characters apart, it was a significant thing that I remember about the book.

I loved that one of the boys was of non-binary gender (Page identifies as a "boy" but also feels that both "he" and "she" pronouns fit her most of the time), and the story also included lesbian grandmothers. The del Cisne aunt/cousin from a previous generation that was a trans-female was also a nice touch added to the background of the family curse. Also appreciated: the conversations about consent before kissing (and more than kissing).
I also loved (though others may not) that there was a noticeable amount of menstruation talk in here. For something that happens on a monthly basis and that is or has been experienced by half the population on earth, I have so rarely seen it openly talked about in books. ( )

Stopped on page 70, if I want to try again in the future! It was interesting, but the writing style was a little much.

4.5 star rating.

This was stunning. It was a whimsical and poignant modern fairy tale while also being this beautiful story of friendship and love and what it means to have stereotypes and expectations forced on you simply for existing as you. Who knew a retelling cross between Swan Lake and Snow White & Rose Red could be so damn good.

The atmosphere, the representation, the writing.... UGH Anna-Marie's MIND. Her power. I need to read all of her other novels now. ( )

You probably don't remember me.

We only met for about ten minutes.
