Natalya's new favorite book. Belinda has been cast as Cinderella in the ballet. She has very large feet but is very graceful. But she must compete for the roll of Cinderella. One of the girls wants the roll so bad that she locks Belinda in a closet on opening day. But Belinda still manages to get her Prince.
