I really liked how her stepmothers weren't despicable, but really?! love at first sight? really.
Otherwise it was a good book

I found this book to be incredibly predictable, and not because it is a retelling of a well known fairytale. So little happens in the first half of the book that I read the first two chapters and then read the last two chapters and wasn't confused or lost in the slightest. Its not terrible, just don't expect anything great.

I really enjoyed this fairy tale retelling (which, to be honest, based on the cover - I'm surprised).

It was teen angsty like the cover suggested to me it might be, it was actually well written and a creative take on an old classic.

Great twist on the original Cinderella story. This book will leave you on the edge of your seat; very unpridictable!

This story is a very interesting Re-Telling of Cinderella with several interesting characters and twists that shape the story in unexpected but intriguing ways. This is a great story that keeps the reader interested and makes the reader want to keep reading till the end.
