dreamed. This intricately woven twist on Cinderella is an enchanting
book you won’t be able to put down.

From Reidhead Randomness:
This was such a fun book! My daughters (ages 13 and 11) read it and loved it! It was a newer version of Cinderella. It has lots of surprises, and familiar Cinderella things, but it is a super fun...NEW take on the story we all know so well. It is well written, and a fun book to read! It would be a great one for the Christmas break!
