Booknotes: Oakes’ first novel finds inspiration in fairy tales

Minnow Bly has lived with the Kevinians since she was 5 years old. When she’s 17, the Montana cult goes up in flames, having taken everything from her, including her parents and her hands. That’s the premise of “The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly” ($17.99, Dial Books), a debut young adult novel from Spokane writer Stephanie Oakes that will be released Tuesday. The book, based on the old fable of “The Handless Maiden,” examines Minnow’s life in the aftermath of the cult’s collapse.
