Dazzling and enchanting, The Stepsister’s Tale is a finely tuned story that breathes new life into the classic Cinderella tale. Tracy Barrett shines as a marvelous storyteller due to her smooth prose, lively characters and perfectly dramatic plot. Jane is a splendid narrator and possesses all the right qualities for a star heroine.4/5(39).

This book: *is a bold, subversive and startingly original reclamation of one of literature's most reviled women which, by recasting Cinderella's evil stepsister as a hero in her own right, illuminates a known story from a new evolving and multifaceted perspective while eking out depth and redemption and seamlessly grafting concepts of self-discovery and identity to an unrepentant celebration of kindness, /5(K).

Tracy Barrett's engaging new Young Adult novel, "The Stepsister's Tale" is an imaginative and immensely entertaining retelling of the classic "Cinderella" story.

The setting is The stepsisters tale book Montjoy family farm and the formerly grand old home now crumbling around the two sisters who live there with their mother/5. STEPSISTER is officially for ages 12 and up, but age-appropriateness for any book depends a great deal on the child and the family.

If you’re a young person, I would suggest you talk to your parent or guardian about it — maybe he or she can read it first and help you decide if it’s for you. Stepsister focuses on the story of Cinderella's step sister, Isabelle, and picks up from the traditional fairytale at the point where they are trying on the shoe.

I loved all the little nods to the many different versions of the well known Cinderella stories - clearly Jennifer Donnelly has done her research/5(). The Stepsister's Tale is no exception.

A brilliant and innovative retelling of a classic that gives entirely new meaning to the term 'Cinderella story.'" -Ruta Sepetys, New York Times bestselling author of Between Shades of Gray "An intriguing twist on a classic story, The Stepsister's Tale is a captivating tale of resilience and hope."/5(6).

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.

Author: Jennifer Donnelly. From the handsome prince to the evil stepsister, nothing is quite as it seems in Tracy Barrett's stunning retelling of the classic Cinderella tale. Goodreads Ratings and Reviews Book Details. Jennifer Donnelly is the author of A Northern Light, which was awarded a Printz Honor and a Carnegie Medal;Revolution (named a Best Book by Amazon, Kirkus Reviews, School Library Journal, and the Chicago Public Library, and nominated for a Carnegie Medal); the Deep Blue series; and many other books for young readers, including Lost in a Book, which spent more than 20 weeks on the New York.

Stepsisters tells the totally-true-and-not-at-all-made-up version of the little cinder girl. When Drew and Beth are thrown into the dungeon for conspiring against the throne, these stepsisters, who are not wicked, evil and certainly not ugly, are forced to tell their fellow prisoners the real story of what happened with Cinderella.

Despite the singular title, this clever and sensitive retelling of “Cinderella” takes the viewpoint of the supposedly evil stepsisters and turns the story inside out.

Jane and her sister, Maude, live in serious poverty after the death of their handsome but alcoholic father, who wasted the family : Tracy Barrett.

For the majority of The Ugly Stepsister, Kat tries to deny her feelings for Edward because the goblin tells her that she must complete the story of "Cinderella" in order to return to her own world. Therefore, she does whatever she can to try to push the prince together with her serving girl, Elle/5().

When Kat accidentally rips apart an old childhood picturebook, she's magically transported into the world of Cinderella - as Katriona, one of the ugly stepsisters. To get back, she'll have to complete the story, right to the end of happily ever after.4/5.

Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister is a novel by Gregory Maguire, retelling the tale of Cinderella through the eyes of one of her "ugly stepsisters." Inthe book was adapted into a TV movie of the same name directed by Gavin Millar.

[Tracy Barrett] -- Jane cares for her mother and sister until her stepfather dies, leaving nothing but debts and Jane's spoiled stepsister behind, but a mysterious boy from the woods and an invitation to a royal ball.

Tracy Barrett’s new novel for teens, The Stepsister’s Tale, offers a necessary update to the classic rags-to-riches story. No one is a villain (or a sidekick or a mentor) in her or his own story, and in my recent work I’ve enjoyed exploring well-known stories from.

The Stepsister’s Tale is told from the point of view of Lady Jane Montjoy, the older stepsister. Jane has been keeping it together for so long. Living in a crumbling mansion with her mother and  sister, Jane keeps food on the table by milking cows and picking berries as well as making cheese/5.

Reviewed in the United States on J Format: Kindle Edition. The Stepsister's Tale is a retelling of Cinderella that's almost gritty, almost rough in its interpretation of the well-loved fairy tale, and it. Visit LitPick Book Reviews to read about The Stepsister's Tale.

Genre: Fiction Age level: 12 and up. Her step-sisters and the step-mother, however, did not know her, and thought she must be a foreign princess, for she looked so beautiful in the golden dress.
