I found this book to be a unique twist on the fairytales that I grew up reading. Abandon everything Disney has taught you about fairytales before diving into this one by Riley LaShea. In this story, Cinderella is not just a helpless slave in her house to her wicked stepsisters (who are noticeably absent in this story) – she is a courageous, brilliant leader who is sometimes unsure of herself (as most women are at some point). Cinderella is not the only fairytale character in this hodge podge of happily ever after either. Snow White and Rapunzel, along with Jack (beanstalk) are the other main characters. The seven dwarves, Little Red Riding Hood, the wolf, Hansel & Gretel and others are also woven into this exciting tale. There are some curiously new characters as well by the names of Norco & Togo. And let me not forget to mention that the dwarves are little thieves with outrageous personalities! And the banter that the strong-headed Cinderella has with the equally as stubborn Esteban had me snorting milk out of my nose.
I found the book hard to put down once I started it. At times I was laughing out loud, and other times I was glued to the pages because of all the action/adventure. The story centers on Cinderella and her quest to free herself and the other fairytale characters from their stories.
