Help!

This is a long shot, but a few years ago I remember seeing a book in the YA section of Barnes & Noble that was a retelling of Snow White set in modern day. I can describe the cover: it's red, white, and black and there is a girl on the cover made up of those colors.

Unfortunately, this is all I can remember. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. It would more than likely be in paperback now, and I'd love to figure out what it is because I want to read it! But I know I haven't seen it at the bookstore recently, or I'd commit it to memory.

It's neither of those. I found it though; I googled "teen books with apples on the cover" (seriously, I did!) and found it in seconds.

The book is: "The Poison Apples" by Lily Archer

Have you seen The Stepsister Scheme by Jim C Hines?  Not YA!

I thought this might be the one you were looking for.  It is on my wishlist, lol.

Snow by Tracy Lynn is really good, or I thought it was. Retold fairy tales/fables are one of my passions and that was one of the better ones I've read because it was so twisted and strange.
