A book I read ages ago for the library reading program, but unfortunately I threw out my records:( Rumpelstiltskin in a modern setting – a teenage girl is in hospital, for a broken leg I think, and she organizes a musical for the young children to perform in. That’s all I remember of it, but it was a brilliant book and I’ve been trying to find it for several years now.

I posted this in Name That Book, and it was suggested that I look here. Hope I'm not breaking any rules by posting again.

I've never heard of it, but please let us know if you recover the title!

For reference, the NTB thread is here.

Viola, don't worry. You're not breaking any rules. ^-^ Sometimes we direct people away from Name That Book and towards specialised groups like this one because (afaik) we feel people will have a better chance getting an answer to their query there. I wish I could offer suggestions for you to poke at, though. I'm sorry I can't be of any direct help.

I'm not familiar with this tale either (yet!). Can you remember any more details that might help us search, such as how the story is related to Rumpelstilskin? E.g. Was he a character in the book, or did something happen in the hospital/musical that was related to the fairy tale?

I hope it's in there!  That would be an interesting retelling to read.

You could also ask in one of the YA groups, or check the Surlalune fairytales website.
