    Today I am sharing with you one of my all-time favorite YA books. StepSister, by Jennifer Donnelly, is a fairytale retelling like none other! Isabelle is Cinderella's ugly stepsister. Her jealousy of Cinderella has made her mean and hollow. But now Isabelle has the chance to change her fate and chose her own destiny. She will prove "it takes more than heartache to break a girl." StepSister is a wonderful story that shows us that ugly is in the eye of the beholder, and that pretty is more than just our physical appearance.
