A wonderful and mind-boggling retelling of the classic Cinderella story is presented by Jennifer Donnelly in this gripping new book. This novel picks up where the classic fairytale left off, as readers follow the youngest of the ‘evil’ stepsisters: Isabelle. Isabelle has never been considered beautiful, and her qualities have been constantly ignored by a society who has no interest in anything other than the norm. The young woman must face her demons and confront her mistreatment of her sister. This novel tackles bullying and societal expectations for young women in a unique and thought-provoking way. The classic Cinderella story will never appear the same after you read this incredible new perspective.

Suitable for ages 12+
