I was so excited about this book. I have heard so many good things about them I had to check out what the hype about these where . I didn't LOVE this book, I really liked it though. It was good, but for a retelling it didn't really stick to the story of Cinderella much. Don't get me wrong, it had some, just not very many. In the end, I will probably continue reading through the rest of the series as I have heard it does get better. But I didn't love this book.
