About the Book
Can the fairy tale bring Charlotte the happiness she’s looking for, or was he always there to begin with?
A modern, reimagined Cinderella story.
When aspiring author Charlotte Kingsley finally gets published, she thinks all her dreams have come true. But the trouble begins when her publicity firm reinvents her quirky online presence into a perfectly curated dream life. Gone are the days of sweatpant posts and ice cream binges with her best friend, Anders, replaced instead with beautiful clothes, orchestrated selfies, and no boyfriend. Only, that carefully curated fairy tale life is ruining her self-esteem and making her feel like a fraud.
When a bestselling author takes Charlotte under her wing—almost like a fairy godmother—she helps Charlotte see the beautiful person she already is and the worth of being authentic. But is it too late to save her relationship with Anders? The clock is quickly ticking towards midnight, and Charlotte must decide between her fairy tale life and the man she loves, before he’s gone forever.
In My Opinion
What happens when your dream-come-true strips away the things you already loved about your life? When Charlotte (Letti) Kingsley is finally offered the book contract she’s strived toward, it comes with conditions she never expected.
Charlotte is a character I wanted to both shake and hug at different times during this book. As she embraces her new image, some of her missteps with the important people in her life are cringeworthy.
This neighbors-who-are-friends-who-become-more tale is a very loose spin on the Cinderella story that is humorous, angsty, and pure Julie Wright brilliance.
