Fairest by Marissa Meyer, 222 pages

This the backstory of Levana from the Lunar Chronicles, and how she became queen.  While we have all come to hate Levana, who has been nothing but evil in the Lunar Chronicles series so far, it's hard not to feel some compassion for the girl who was clearly mistreated as a child, especially by her older sister, and who was clearly better suited to rule.  If she had been brought up slightly differently, it's even possible that she wouldn't have turned into the nasty piece of work she became.  I really liked this early glimpse into Levana's life and anyone who's liked the series so far will want to read this.  Teens that like fairy tale type stories also might enjoy this book, whether they've read the series or not.
