Fairest book review
Author: Gail Carson Levine
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Plot: Aza , the adopted daughter of an Innkeeper and his wife, lives in the country of Ayortha, were singing is a major part of life.
Aza has the loveliest singing voice in her region, which you think would make her very popular. The only problem is that Aza is more than plain- she is ugly.
When Aza is given a chance to go to the royal court she hopes to make something of herself, despite her looks.
Will a young,foolish queen and a magic mirror stop Aza's chance of happiness?
What I liked about this book:
Aza is a very realistic character. She wasn't pretty, charming, or witty. Aza was loyal, caring, and self sacrificing.
The plot was really great. It was inspired by ' Snow White' ,but it was written in a way that made in new and interesting.
What I didn't like about this book:
There was some magic in this book, but it wasn't the witchcraft kind.
My rating: 3
