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.

Great writer. Perfect person to perform this book. I will definitely be buying more under the same writer. I really enjoyed the whole experience.
The story was sweet, and the voice was suitable, but I had had wishful thinking that the songs would be sung.
