Fairest by Gail Carson Levine
Fairest: Book summary and reviews of Fairest by Gail Carson Levine
The fairy Lucinda has once again given a dreadful gift. This time it's a mysterious magical mirror. The gift is disastrous when it falls into the hands of Aza, who never looks in a mirror if she can help it. In the Kingdom of Ayortha, Aza is most definitely not the fairest of them all. Many spurn her. Many scoff at her. She keeps out of sight.
"Starred review. For a slightly older audience than Levine's Ella Enchanted, this book makes a natural partner to Donna Jo Napoli's fractured fairy-tale novels, such as Beast.
