Once upon a time, there was a girl who wanted to be pretty . . .

Aza's singing is the fairest in all the land, and the most unusual. She can "throw" her voice so it seems to come from anywhere. But singing is only one of the two qualities prized in the Kingdom of Ayortha. Aza doesn't possess the other: beauty. Not even close. She's hidden in the shadows in her parents' inn, but when she becomes lady-in-waiting to the new queen, she has to step into the light—especially when the queen demands a dangerous favor. A magic mirror, a charming prince, a jealous queen, palace intrigue, and an injured king twine into a maze that Aza must penetrate to save herself and her beloved kingdom.

About the Author:

Gail Carson Levine's first book for children, Ella Enchanted, was a Newbery Honor Book. Levine's other books include Ever, a New York Times bestseller; Fairest, a Best Book of the Year for Publishers Weekly and School Library Journal, and a New York Times bestseller; Dave at Night, an ALA Notable Book and Best Book for Young Adults; The Wish; The Two Princesses of Bamarre; A Tale of Two Castles; and the six Princess Tales books. She is also the author of the nonfiction books Writing Magic: Creating Stories That Fly and Writer to Writer: From Think to Ink, as well as the picture books Betsy Who Cried Wolf and Betsy Red Hoodie. Gail Carson Levine and her husband, David, live in a two-centuries-old farmhouse in the Hudson Valley of New York State.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* In the Kingdom of Ayortha, where fine singing is the main method of communication, 15-year-old Aza is blessed with a beautiful singing voice. However, she believes she is ugly. This is an imaginative and altered Snow White story, complete with a jealous queen, handsome prince, and clever and kind gnomes. Aza is able to mimic voices and throw sound, and so she is coerced to throw her voice at the wedding of Ivi, who plots to overthrow the kingdom. A huge cast voices more than 20 characters, who speak and sing music composed by Todd Hobin. The magnificent performers employ different vocal registers and accents. Sarah Naughton plays the part of Aza with versatility and ease, and Alice Morigi is appropriately haughty as the Duchess of Olixo. Occasional touches of humor (the cook’s “Omelette Song” and Ivi’s high-pitched rendition of “Healing Song”) contrast with more serious moments, such as the sweet love song of Prince Ijori (played by Adam Wahlberg). Speaking and singing weave in and out of the production; solos, duets, and choruses comprise many musical numbers, which range from simple lute arrangements to a majestic liturgical church service.  This outstanding audio—a magical fairy tale romance—will capture listeners’ hearts. Grades 7-10. --Lolly Gepson
