The book “Cinderella 2000” is by Mavis Jukes, who also wrote “Blueberries In The Dark,” won a Newbery Honor Book citation for another one of her books, titled, “Like Jake and Me,” and has many more that she has written. This work is a mix of realistic fiction and some romance in the end. The title is appropriate for this book because it is not only like the Cinderella fairy tale, but it also takes place on the eve of the year 2000. The book is divided into eleven chapters and the author foresha ...more

This chapter book version of Cinderella is modern and set in the present day. Ashley, the main character, really wants to spend New Year’s Eve at an exclusive party with her crush.

Ashley’s godmother who is flying in from Florida, brings lots of cash and gifts, making all of her dreams come true.

This version of Cinderella is definitely told with a modern twist. The storyline is very predictable and

I give this a 3.5.
It was a really cute little story. I did have a little bit of a problem with Phyllis; the stepmother. She was really annonying. And the twins (step sisters) were little stinkers. But I loved the Grandmother/fairy godmother! She was great. I wish there had been more of the ending; telling about what happened at the party! The whole book leads up to this moment, and is about Ashley/Cinderella trying to get to the New Year's Eve pary of the new millenium, and then we don't even g

This was a cute book, but I wasn't wowed. The stepsisters were over the top annoying and I could not decide whether Phyllis was really all that bad. I loved Grammie's character; she added some poignant moments. Overall this book was just okay for me. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't fantastic either.
