McLemore, Anna-Marie

Blanca & Roja

(2) YA Knowing a family curse will eventually trap one of them in a swan's body, sisters Blanca (fair-haired and sweet) and Roja (flame-haired and difficult) spend their lives trying to become more alike and thus impossible to separate. McLemore reimagines Snow White and Rose Red as young Latinx women, mixing their stories with themes from "The Ugly Duckling," Swan Lake, and "The Wild Swans" for a tale rich with visual detail.
