Book Review

I think I'm going to start doing book reviews on Thursday. That seems like a good day to do that. Hopefully I'm not biting off more than I can chew!

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.

But in a land of singers, Aza has her own gift, one she's come by without fairy intervention: a voice that can do almost anything, a voice that captivates all who hear it. In Ontio Castle, merry Prince Ijori is drawn to it, and vain Queen Ivi wants to use it for her own ends. Queen Ivi would do anything to remain the fairest in the land.

This is the back cover of the book Fairest by Gail Carson Levine. I couldn't put this book down. It's a cute, fun read about a girl learning to be comfortable with who she is. I loved the characters and the lessons learned. Levine has a way with words that gets you wrapped into the story. I would recommend this to anyone of all ages. Take a look and let me know what you think!
