VASSA IN THE NIGHT by Sarah Porter! | First Impressions

Kicking off an impromptu First Impressions week with Sarah Porter's upcoming retelling, VASSA IN THE NIGHT! I'll be sharing my general first thoughts as well as a snippet from the beginning, so you can get a feel for the style for yourself! (I know this excerpt is a bit on the longish side, compared to what I'd normally share, but I just couldn't resist. Erg!)

Let me know your thoughts -- good, bad and otherwise -- in the comments!

304 pages
Expected publication: September 20th 2016 by Tor Teen
In the enchanted kingdom of Brooklyn, the fashionable people put on cute shoes, go to parties in warehouses, drink on rooftops at sunset, and tell themselves they’ve arrived. A whole lot of Brooklyn is like that now—but not Vassa’s working-class neighborhood.

In Vassa’s neighborhood, where she lives with her stepmother and bickering stepsisters, one might stumble onto magic, but stumbling out again could become an issue. Babs Yagg, the owner of the local convenience store, has a policy of beheading shoplifters—and sometimes innocent shoppers as well. So when Vassa’s stepsister sends her out for light bulbs in the middle of night, she knows it could easily become a suicide mission.

But Vassa has a bit of luck hidden in her pocket, a gift from her dead mother. Erg is a tough-talking wooden doll with sticky fingers, a bottomless stomach, and a ferocious cunning. With Erg’s help, Vassa just might be able to break the witch’s curse and free her Brooklyn neighborhood. But Babs won’t be playing fair. . . .
