Don’t just fracture the fairy tale. Shatter it.

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’s cut off her toes to fit into the shoe . . . which is now filling with her blood.

When the prince discovers Isabelle’s deception, she’s turned away in shame. It’s no more than she deserves. She’s a plain girl in a world that values beauty, a bold girl in a world that wants her to be pliant.

Isabelle tried to fit in. She cut away pieces of herself in order to become pretty. But that only made her mean, jealous, and hollow. Now she has a chance to alter her destiny and prove what ‘ugly’ sisters have always known: it takes more than heartache to break a girl.

Evoking the original version of the Cinderella story, bestselling author Jennifer Donnelly uses her trademark wit and wisdom to send an overlooked character on a journey toward empowerment, redemption . . . and a new definition of beauty.
