Once upon a time, Hazel and Jack were best friends. They had been best friends since they were six, spending hot Minneapolis summers and cold Minneapolis winters together, dreaming of Hogwarts and Oz, superheroes and baseball. Now that they were eleven, it was weird for a boy and a girl to be best friends. But they couldn't help it - Hazel and Jack fit, in that way you on.
But they couldn't help it - Hazel and Jack fit, in that way you only read about in books. And they didn't fit anywhere else. And then, one day, it was over. Jack just stopped talking to Hazel. And while her mom tried to tell her that this sometimes happens to boys and girls at this age, Hazel had read enough stories to know that it's never that simple. And it turns out, she was right. Jack's heart had been frozen, and he was taken into the woods by a woman dressed in white to live in a palace made of ice.
Now, it's up to Hazel to venture into the woods after him. Hazel finds, however, that these woods are nothing like what she's read about, and the Jack that Hazel went in to save isn't the same Jack that will emerge.
Or even the same Hazel. Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen," Breadcrumbs is a story of the struggle to hold on, and the things we leave behind.

The Written Review: 4. Only two people noticed. One was a witch, and she took him for her own. The other was his best friend. And she went after him in ill-considered shoes, brave and completely unprepared. Hazel and Jack Shout out to this fabulous book in my latest YouTube Video all about my favorite bookish books and while I attempt a little baking in the background.
Hazel and Jack are were the best of friends. They did everything together and when Hazel swapped schools, they were together all the time. But then Not a squabble or an argument - an actual fight. And after that, Jack is different. Really different.
Then he disappears. And no one knows - or even cares - except Hazel. But sometimes you have a friend to rescue. And so you take a deep breath and then step over the line and into the darkness ahead. It doesn't matter if they had a fight or if he thinks they're no longer friends. Hazel will rescue him. No matter what. Kids can handle a lot more than you think they can. It's when they get to be grown up that you have to start worrying.
This one was actually pretty good. It was about 75ish pages in and not much of a rewrite or reimagination of that story But, I kept going and the story blossomed beautifully. It's such a shame that so much of it follows the Snow Queen or is wasted on character development because once Hazel wanders into the magical land - and when all the tropes turn completely on their head - I was fascinated.
The book clawed its way from a 2-star book to 5-stars as soon as we sunk into the mystical world. The garden? The perfect parents with the wire bird cage? The woodcutter? The bloody dancing shoes? It was horrifying and creepy and absolutely riveting. It played a role, but it was not her defining character trait. And the same goes for Jack with his mother. She was depressed and played a role in Jack's world, but Jack wasn't solely defined by his mother's condition.
This book was really good - just got to wait for the plot to get moving first. View all 9 comments. May 29, Wendy Darling rated it really liked it Shelves: read , publication , favorites , poc , asian , illustrated , retellings-and-inspirations , middle-grade , snowy , mythic-and-fairy-tale-ish.
If you gently shook a snow globe, you might find that the snowflakes come down on an enchanting story much like this one. Hazel turns out to be a brave, imaginative heroine whose love of books and quiet wonder at the world made me overjoyed to find such a kindred spirit.
The strongest and most compelling part of this book for me was how the author so seamlessly modernized this classic story.
