Thursday's Featured YA Book: Blood Red, Snow White by Marcus Sedgwick

Blood Red, Snow White by Marcus Sedgwick. McArthur & Co., 2007. $19.95.

Who doesn’t love to read about the Russian Revolution? The Russian Revolution saw the fall of the Tsars and the rise of the Bolsheviks, and is undoubtedly one of the richest periods in history. Blood Red, Snow White, a new book by Marcus Sedgwick, is a fairy tale, spy thriller and love story set during the last days of the Romanovs.

In Blood Red, Snow White, Sedgwick fictionalizes history and tells the story of the Revolution and Arthur Ransome. A writer, accused of being a spy, perhaps even a double agent, Ransome left England behind and fell in love with Russia and a Russian woman, Evgenia. His story is brilliantly retold in three interlinked parts.
