¿Y si siguiera el cuento de la Cenicienta?

No te conformes con romper el cuento de hadas, hazlo añicos.  Isabelle no es la preciosa muchacha que ha enamorado al príncipe tras perder un zapato de cristal, sino la hermanastra fea que se ha cortado los dedos de los pies para lograr meterlos en el zapato de Cenicienta. Y ese zapato… se está llenando de sangre. Cuando el príncipe descubre el engaño, la rechaza y condena a su familia al desprecio del pueblo. Pero ella cree que se lo tiene merecido: quería ser como Cenicienta y solo ha conseguido ser mala y celosa. Ahora tiene la oportunidad de cambiar su destino y demostrar lo que las hermanastras feas siempre han sabido: ni siquiera un corazón roto basta para someter a una chica.

Isabelle should be blissfully happy-she's about to win the handsome prince. Except Isabelle isn't the beautiful girl who lost the glass slipper and captured the prince's heart. She's the ugly stepsister who cut off her toes to fit into Cinderella's shoe . . . which is now filling with blood.Isabelle tried to fit in. She cut away pieces of herself in order to become pretty. Sweet. More like Cinderella. But that only made her mean, jealous, and hollow. Now she has a chance to alter her destiny and prove what ugly stepsisters have always known: it takes more than heartache to break a girl.Evoking the darker, original version of the Cinderella story, Stepsister shows us that ugly is in the eye of the beholder, and uses Jennifer Donnelly's trademark wit and wisdom to send an overlooked character on a journey toward empowerment, redemption . . . and a new definition of beauty.

"Printz Honor winner Donnelly offers up a stunningly focused story that rips into the heart of the familiar fairy tale. Isabelle [is] a shattered but not unredeemable girl with a warrior's heart." -- Booklist, starred review
