Title:Cinderella Is Dead Author: Kalynn Bayron Published by: Bloomsbury YA Release Date: 7 Jul 2020 Genre:fantasy, retellings Pages:391 ASIN: B08C9X9DK4
It’s 200 years after Cinderella found her prince, but the fairy tale is over. Teen girls are now required to appear at the Annual Ball, where the men of the kingdom select wives based on a girl’s display of finery. If a suitable match is not found, the girls not chosen are never heard from again.
Sixteen-year-old Sophia would much rather marry Erin, her childhood best friend, than parade in front of suitors. At the ball, Sophia makes the desperate decision to flee, and finds herself hiding in Cinderella’s mausoleum. There, she meets Constance, the last known descendant of Cinderella and her step sisters. Together they vow to bring down the king once and for all–and in the process, they learn that there’s more to Cinderella’s story than they ever knew . . .
This fresh take on a classic story will make readers question the tales they’ve been told, and root for girls to break down the constructs of the world around them.

The feeling you get when you open a new book and dive in the world that unfolds through the pages is incomparable. Stephen King once said that ❝ books are a portable kind of magic❞ and he was absolutely right. And the truly magical books are the ones that stay with you after that last page, that create characters you consider your friends, that make you laugh, cry and forget that you are reading: you are on a journey.
