Seven of the best YA Cinderella retellings

Rachel Paxton-Gillilan is a freelance writer and semi-professional nerd.

At the B & N Teen Blog she tagged seven of the best YA Cinderella retellings, including:
Ash, by Malinda Lo

Like the classic Cinderella, Ash finds herself at the mercy of her evil stepmother after her father’s untimely death. But that’s pretty much where the similarities end. When Ash meets Sidhean, a dark and dangerous fairy, she believes her dreams of being saved are finally going to come true. But then she meets Kaisa, the King’s Huntress, and Ash’s heart begins to change. She’s faced with the choice between her fairy-tale dreams and her true love. Beautifully and lyrically written, Ash is a welcome and refreshing take on the fairy-tale genre.

Writers Read: Malinda Lo (September 2009).
