When I began reading this book, I had difficulty becoming engaged with it because it didn't hold my attention. However, I became more invested in the story once I read about a quarter of the way through.
I really liked this book because of the independence and stubbornness of Cinderella; she reminded me of myself at times. My favorite character was Blackie the dog; he seemed very loyal and friendly. I would recommend this book to children 8-12, fans of Cinderella, and to young girls who love princesses!
