The Fairytale Lives of Russian Girls by Meg Miroshnik

Once upon a time, in 2005, 20-year-old Annie is sent by her mother back to her native Russia to brush up on the language, and lose her American accent. Underneath an opulent, neon-lit, post-Soviet Moscow she discovers an enchanted motherland – teeming with evil stepmothers, wicked witches, and ravenous bears.

While staying with an old family friend, Annie meets Masha and Katya – two glamorous Moscovians who introduce her to a world of magic, mystery, and vodka. But then, Masha disappears and Annie and Katya set out to save her.

Annie must learn how to become the heroine of a story more mysterious, treacherous and absurdly funny than any childhood fable; her own. She quickly learns that not every fairytale has a happy ending…

“The Fairytale Lives of Russian Girls takes place in a kind of dreamland. But in this dreamland, people sleep with one eye open.” – New York Times

Featuring Erica Field, Cazz Bainbridge, Laila Thaker, Lucinda Barratt, Linda Cookson, Jessica Tanner and Felicity Steel.
