Presenting Grim edited by Christine Johnson.

Here is the summary of the book:

Step into a world of dark and twisted fairytales, with stories by Julie Kagawa, Amanda Hocking and more...

In the days when fairytales were first spun, they weren't the sweet and cheerful stories we tell today. Back then, fairytales were terrifying. They were a warning to the listener to stay out of the night, to keep away from the mystical and ignore the mysterious.

Grim features some of today's best young adult authors, sharing their own, unique retellings of classic fairytales from around the world. These talented writers, many of them New York Times bestsellers or award-winners, have put their own spin on these magical worlds...

Prepare to open a treasure box of the unusual and the macabre.

Grimm fairy tales. Who doesn't know them...... The first books for children, either reading them or listening to it as an elder recites. Grimm fairy tales, a collection of fairy tales by the Grimm brothers are an important part of our lives and our cultures. And this anthology by Harlequin Teen is as brilliant as the original...... Just with one 'M' less than before *winks*.
