Ooh! I really love how unique and different this setting is! This gets me excited to get deeper into the story, tbh! Different setting could mean a totally new take on a classic fairytale 😉
I am almost imagining Jolie as a woman of African American descent and I kinda like it! It makes sense since the story takes place in Louisiana

Smack-in-the-middle-of-nowhere Special, Louisiana. (Just an idea that struck me as being both funny and useful.

I would replace this by "where" to eliminate the repetition 😊

As soon as I saw the word swamp in the description I thought of Shrek,,, lol anyways I'm thinking this is a modern-something where you'd have half crocodile people (fantasy? Sci-fi?) kind of fairytale soooooo I'm gonna read it cause I love modern fairytales.

This part is yet another proof of your storytelling talent (if more proofs were really needed 😉)! And, BTW, your dialogues are just amazing in this! I can hear the accent so clearly in my head. Amazing job with that 👌
