When Echo’s father journeys to the city only to disappear, her life is turned upside down. Weeks pass with no sign of him before Echo runs away to the woods only to find her father half-frozen in the snow. To save him she strikes a deal with a white wolf: live in his castle for one year. The castle is falling apart, every room needing to be sewn together to keep from unraveling. Untold secrets unfold as she finds a library of mirrors and meets a mysterious boy named Hal. As the year ticks by, Echo is no closer to rescuing Hal or the wolf from enchantment, and if she doesn’t, Echo, the wolf, and Hal may be lost forever.
Echo North is a fantastic retelling of Beauty and the Beast. I love the characters; some are shallow but still intriguing, whereas others are relatable in different ways. The beginning was a little hard to get into because of the way it’s written, but later on in the book it makes since the way it’s told and I really liked it.
