Cute and sweet. A perfect read for me to share with my oldest daughter (age 10).

I liked how the author turned the Cinderella story on its head. What if the fairy godmother was an evil witch? What if those glass slippers were enchanted to cast a spell on the entire kingdom? What if Cinderella was bitter and angry about her lot in life? She would sure be easy pickings for someone who wanted to use her to destroy a kingdom and maybe start a war.
