Everything you need to understand or teach Mirror Mirror by Gregory Maguire.
Mirror Mirror by Gregory Maguire is a modern twist on a classic fairytale. Loosely translated, Bianca de Nevada means Snow White. Mirror Mirror is the story of a young girl who, through a strange twist of fate, is caught up in a web of lies, deceit and the search for immortality. In this intricate tale, however, there are eight dwarves instead of seven.
Bianca de Nevada is a young girl who lives on a rambling estate in Tuscany during the Italian High Renaissance. She is the epitome of innocence, purity and, above all, beauty.
Bianca lives a quiet, sheltered life as the daughter of successful landowner Vicente de Nevada. Vicente is a Spaniard and a single parent who settles in Italy under mysterious circumstances after his beloved wife dies in childbirth. One day, Vicente finds an old mirror at the bottom of a lake on his property.
