Kendra Olson

I kept thinking she would probably be much more vulnerable than she was, and possibly be suffering from malnutrition.

I rolled my eyes a lot too.

But I also wondered if the author might have been trying to write a sort of fairy tale or myth. The distant POV, implausibility of plot events and weak character motivation, plus the moral at the end of the story made me wonder about this possibility.
