Once upon a time in New York City...
...a young, secretive street tough who calls himself, Bear, lands on the doorstep of two teenaged sisters in the middle of a January snowstorm. On the one hand Rose is delighted with his surprising knowledge of literature, poetry, and music; on the other hand Blanche is afraid of his apparent connections to drugs, murder, and a hidden treasure. Even as Blanche learns to trust him, her fears that Bear's friendship threatens their family prove terrifyingly true.
This first book in the Fairy Tale Novels series by Regina Doman is based on the traditional fairy tale Snow White and Rose Red (not to be confused with Snow White and the Seven Dwarves) by the Grimm Brothers.
