Book Review

Publisher's Note:

High school soccer star and part-time truffle hunter Dani Tucker is having a really bad day. As if being publicly humiliated by her boyfriend and suffering a season-ending injury aren’t bad enough, she also finds out her dad is dating again! When Magic offers her the chance to change it all—to live her own Cinderella story—Dani doesn’t hesitate. With visions of Prince Charming and happily ever aft…

Overall Book Review:

A fairy tale twist always makes for a fun read and Becoming Cinderella is no exception. Author Lecia Crider takes the well-known Cinderella story but modernizes it and throws in enough twists to keep you guessing. Her ability to appeal to all your senses also brings the story to life. The main character, Dani, dives in headfirst when given the opportunity to make all her dreams come true; unfortunately, she failed to consider all the bad that comes with the good. Luckily for her, she has a wonderful best friend who not only believes her situation but is always there to help and support. Of course, there had to be an evil stepmother who throws a wrench into her “happily ever after” and this one plays her role well. Reluctant female readers will likely enjoy this short, enchanting story.

About the Reviewer

I love being able to help busy parents who just don’t have the time to pre-screen all their children’s books and know how much I appreciate it as my sons have gotten older. I feel very blessed that my amazing husband makes it possible for me to be a stay-at-home mother to four amazing boys. When not reading or enjoying time with my family, I like baking, especially trying new recipes, and the occasional sewing project.
