Gr 6 Up–The fourth installment of the Dericott Tales is a retelling of the Snow Queen fairy tale. The father of Mazy, 16, has died and her brother has abandoned her, forcing her to seek out her other brother, Sir John, who is training in a great castle. There Mazy meets Sir Berenger of Dericott, who is 21, before circumstances force them apart for a couple years. Sir Berenger is offered a title and a chance at marriage to the widow of Bristow Castle, but the castle has many unanswered questions and Mazy realizes she may need to be the one who rescues the hero rather than the other way around. Dickerson is a staple of the YA Christian romance genre, and this installment emphasizes the friendship between love interests prior to their romance.
VERDICT Recommended for collections in need of YA Christian romances.
