A Frozen Heart by Elizabeth Rudnick is a book based off of the love story of Disney’s Frozen. Angled more toward tweens, A Frozen Heart alternates chapters between Anna and Hans’ life. They finally collide when princess Elsa has organized her coronation. Before then, Hans had spent 3 years preparing for this opportunity by winning his father’s trust, so he would be able to prove to his father that he is responsible enough to represent The Southern Isles at Elsa’s event. His real reason for attending? Finding love. Featured in the book are backstories on characters and an inside look at our beloved characters worlds.

About A Whole New World by Liz Braswell
What if Aladdin had never found the lamp? This first book in the A Twisted Tale line will explore a dark and daring version of Disney’s Aladdin. When Jafar steals the Genie’s lamp, he uses his first two wishes to become sultan and the most powerful sorcerer in the world. Agrabah lives in fear, waiting for his third and final wish. To stop the power-mad ruler, Aladdin and the deposed princess Jasmine must unite the people of Agrabah in rebellion. But soon their fight for freedom threatens to tear the kingdom apart in a costly civil war. What happens next? A Street Rat becomes a leader. A princess becomes a revolutionary. And readers will never look at the story of Aladdin in the same way again.
About Once Upon a Time: Red’s Untold Tale by Wendy Toliver
Red is 16 and lives with Granny in a cottage in the village, where boarding up the house and hiding during Wolfstime is a means of survival. Red help’s Granny with Granny’s baked good business, catering as well as door-to-door sales. Red has a constant internal battle between her wild side and her strict, overprotective upbringing, and the issue of “control” as she discovers she has a hot temper when the “mean girls” push her too far. (“When we learn to control it, we needn’t fear it,” Rumpelstiltskin says in the series.) She has flashbacks to her 13th year when she received her cloak and the nickname “Red.” She is plagued by nightmares that she doesn’t understand, but the Once Upon a Time fans will recognize them as her wolf side coming out. Red balances the difficult times with Granny at home and the girls at school with an emerging and satisfying romance with Peter.
