Stiletto 911 is a captivating self help/ fairy tale novel. It follows the life of Morgan Demarest after she hits rock bottom in her life that has been handed to her on a silver platter. She is forced to realize with the help of her fairy godmother that she won’t be truly happy in life if she does not find a passion to live for. A person cannot just live off of someone else’s money and be fulfilled. The authors do an amazing job showing the transformation Morgan makes throughout the novel. Although she has a fairy godmother, she doesn’t just make finding her passion simple. She forces Morgan to think about her life, the people in it, and re-evaluate herself. Morgan finds that there is more to life then a great pair of stilettos; that retail therapy cannot always fill the void.

I really liked the progression of the book. It moved as if this was a story of a real woman finding her path in life. The footnotes at the end of each chapter give the reader a chance to re-evaluate their own life. The plot is intriguing and the sub plots are placed perfectly and not over done as to lose focus of from main priority of the book. One negation would be that there is not a clear narrative voice; it seems to switch around between the different characters. I would highly recommend this book to anyone, whether it be just for a good read, or for inspiration.
