I picked up Robin McKinley’s Sunshine because her Beauty: A Retelling of the Story of the Beauty and the Beast was not in at the library. Beauty has been recommended to me by Nancy Pearl’s Book Lust and a male friend of mine. Sunshine’s story looked quite interesting, and, of course, there’s a quote on the jacket from Neil Gaiman, calling it “Pretty much perfect”. It’s got all the qualification I need!
