And you thought the stepsisters were wicked....
I'm not who they think I am. A docile girl who meekly obeys her stepmother and stepsisters. Some kind of sick angel who cheerfully bears their mistreatment. That's what I WANT them to think. Because then they won't suspect what I'm really up to.
The ball, the prince - it's all part of my plan to come out on top. Stepmother and her demented daughters will pay for every floor I have scoured, every sneer I have borne. They don't know about the white magic, how I use it to enhance myself. They can't see that my heart is black as midnight, rotten as a poisoned apple.
They're about to find out.
This was actually not quite what I was expecting. And that isn’t a bad thing at all! It’s a mix of Cinderella and Snow White, with a twisted Cinderella, and a funny and crazy Godmother.
Nothing is quite what you remember from the fairy tale, or quite like any other retelling of Cinderella that I’ve read so far. I loved how nothing was quite what it seemed, and there were a lot of twists for such a short book.
The story and characters are a bit dark and twisted, which just sucked me in further. I wanted to know what was going to happen next. If you like retellings, especially ones with unique twists, you need to read this book!
