Jepp, Who Defied the Stars by Katherine Marsh
Being a court dwarf is no easy task. I know because I failed at it.
Fifteen year old Jepp's life is changed forever the day a mysterious aristocrat whisks him away from his life in the Dutch countryside to the court of the Spanish Infanta. However, Jepp's happiness soon turns to misery as he discovers that humiliation and cruelty lurk beneath the court's glittering facade.
Jepp must draw on all of his courage and charm to win the woman he loves, find his true identity and become the man he wishes to be. Jepp must defy the stars.
