With Anna-Marie McLemore's signature lush prose, Dark and Deepest Red pairs the forbidding magic of a fairy tale with a modern story of passion and betrayal. Summer, 1518. A strange sickness sweeps through Strasbourg: women dance in the streets, some until they fall down dead. As rumors of witchcraft spread, suspicion turns toward Lavinia and her family, and Lavinia may have to do the unimaginable to save herself and everyone she loves. Five centuries later, a pair of red shoes seal to Rosella Oliva's feet, making her dance uncontrollably. They draw her toward a boy who knows the dancing fever's history better than anyone: Emil, whose family was blamed for the fever five hundred years ago. But there's more to what happened in 1518 than even Emil knows, and discovering the truth may decide whether Rosella survives the red shoes.… (més)

Reinventing a folktale for the modern world is hard enough, but McLemore makes it look easy with this story, which weaves together the lives of two slightly outcast teenagers and historical events which tie into their families. The modern arc of the story follows Rosella and Emil, two Romani descents living in Briar Meadow, a small city with magical underpinnings, who grew up as the closest of friends but who have fallen apart over the years, as so many boys and girls do when they hit those awkward Middle School years. Every year Briar Meadow experiences magical events known as the Glimmer, which cause some consternation amongst the townsfolk, but largely do no harm once they have run their course. This year the magic centers around a reappearance of red shoes, each pair of which seem to instill in their wearer a heedless abandon for their normal lives and an encouragement to let loose. In the other story, we are transported to the Strasbourg of 1518, where a dancing fever begins to overtake townsfolk. This story arc is led by Emil’s ancestors, Lavinia (Lala) and her aunt, and their friend Alifair, who as Romani are already living a challenging life in secret and for whom the dancing plague may be their deathknell. In the modern story Rosella is taken up by the dance as well, bringing her closer to Emil, and forcing both of them to confront the truth of their rejected heritage. McLemore’s weaving of these two timelines is seamless and artful throughout, even though I struggled with the occasionally jagged feeling of some of the prose, and it’s impossible not to get swept up in the soft magic that traipses throughout both storylines. The historicity of the story is what really kept me enthralled though, since we truly don’t know what caused the dancing fever of 1518, and while McLemore’s story may not give us any actual answers, it gives us food for thought regarding the unknown occurrences in the world. Modern folktale of note, their writing definitely is, and I can’t wait to see what other tales they’ve set out to tell. ( )

teen fiction (folktale revisited, magical realism), queer interest by queer author. ( )

I enjoyed this book. I thought it was a very interesting concept and unique spin on the fairy tale, and I loved the prose. However, it never really grabbed me. Normally, with McLemore's work, I can't put it down and get sucked into the story, but that never happened with this one, and I didn't care about the characters all that much. Overall, if you are a fan of magical realism or interesting fairy tale retellings, I would recommend it, but I feel that the author's other works are better. ( )
