Fairest by Gail Carson Levine

This intriguing retelling of Snow White is a companion book to Ella Enchanted and takes place in the neighboring fantastical kingdom of Ayorthia. In this version, Aza is not the fairest in the land, but she is gifted with a magical voice. Her voice and a cursed mirror lead to adventures and new self-awareness for a variety of characters. Levine writes an entertaining story and manages to teach life lessons through interesting characters. A good read for teens who enjoy a magical, but real-to-life fairy tale.
