WIN: STEPSISTER by Jennifer Donnelly
Who doesn't love a fairytale retelling? And Jennifer Donnelly turns the traditional Cinderella fairytale upside down by telling us the story of Isabelle, Cinderella's stepsister.
This powerful retelling takes up where Cinderella's tale ends. We meet Isabelle, the younger of Cinderella's two stepsisters. Ella is considered beautiful, stepsister Isabelle is not. Isabelle is fearless, brave, and strong-willed. She fences better than any boy, and takes her stallion over jumps that grown men fear to attempt. It doesn't matter, though, these qualities are not valued in a girl.
Others have determined what is beautiful, and Isabelle does not fit their definition. Isabelle must face down the demons that drove her cruel treatment of Ella, challenge her own fate and maybe even redefine the very notion of beauty ...
For your chance to win one of THREE advance reading copies, just tell us what your favourite version of Cinderella is and why.
