Cinderella through the eyes of a young teenage girl.
12 March 2019
This book has an interesting premise and the synopsis promised much, however in reality this is an entirely predictable cinderella story through the eyes of a young girl. The Sci-Fi elements which initially perked my interest are not well developed, the exposition is all through the eyes of a self conscious girl and a giddy robot.
The characters are one dimensional fairytale characters and there is none of the edgy, slightly dangerous possibility which this could have been. I expected fairytale plot, but the characters and world could have been so much more interesting. Instead we get "ill never go to the ball, I'm not good enough" for a hundred pages.
All of that being said, if you have, or are a young girl who likes the standard fairytale with a happy ending, have at it.
