Disenchanted: The Trials of Cinderella

Tyme, #2

Written by Megan Morrison

The first two-thirds of this book is not a fairy tale remake, but a high school drama. Ella, a.k.a. Cinderella, is whiny and complains all the time. She runs from her problems instead of working for a solution. It is hard to care about her. There are mean girls and bullies. The fairy godmother is lazy and deceitful. I could barely get through it. Finally, in the last few chapters, there starts to be some redeeming qualities. People will like it but I don’t think the targeted age group will find it worth their time. Very disappointing.
