    "Yet another deconstruction of a fairy tale. This could have turned out interesting, but the plodding pace of the book does it no favors."

    "I bought this for my daughter and she loved it. I ended up reading it myself and found it to be quite lovely overall. It's a rather sweet story with an engaging character. I don't read fairy tale books very often but this one was quite good. The writing is excellent and captures your attention. I found it to be a retelling of sorts, of the original Cinderella story. "
