Princess (The Circle)

New or Used: 3 copies from $8.17
Ella sees herself as ugly and overweight, because that's what her shallow stepsisters tell her she is. Increasingly unhappy at home, she spends more and more time in front of the sinister mirror her step-mother gave her. Dark mirror magic and distorted reflections, combined with some cruel teasing by a young guy, trigger Ella's episodes of over-eating and bulimia. Ella's friends in the Circle become increasingly concerned and seek magical ways to help Ella, who grows remote and dangerously thin. But in the end, only Ella can distinguish her true self from the distorted image in the mirror. PRINCESS is a multi- layered retelling of the classic Cinderella tale of transformation, exploring issues of adolescent self-image, the beauty myth, and the power of friendship.
