I have just recently started (re)reading Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire. It is a fantastic novel that tells the Cinderella story from the side of the "Step-family," beginning before they meet "Cinderella."
I tell you this as a sort of an invitation to my "blog book club." If you are interested, read it, and within the next two weeks, I'll be posting my synopsis and insights. Comments are gladly welcomed! Happy reading!
