AAAAAnd to start off 2017 (yes, I know it's the end of March) I'm sharing my review of an absolutely fantastic book: Cinder Heart by Amy Linnabary.
Sixteen-year-old Gabriella just wants to finish high school without ticking off her stepmom and being forced out of her father’s house. When she finds out she’s the girl prophesied about in the fairytale Cinderella, her world gets turn upside-down.
Things get worse when the cute senior, Hal Charm, finally discovers that she exists. Add a fairy godmother, the powers of fire and speed, and a villain other than her stepmom and Gabbie’s life goes up in flames.
Now she's forced to decide between ignoring her destiny to save her friendships, or risking discovery to become the hero she needs to be.
Awesome!!! It has been interesting reading all the different retellings of fairytales and this story blew all the rest away! It was neat to see how Amy Linnabary created different twists and turns to the classic Cinderella story that made me completely unable to put the book down. I enjoyed seeing Gabbie as she dealt with her impossible step-mom and step-sister, but it also broke my heart to see how things suddenly got worse and worse. And her powers! That was awesome!
I also love that Mr. Charm wasn't all that you'd expect from your prince charming. The story was masterfully done and I look forward to reading more Fairytale prophecies books in the future!!!
Check out my review and find the book on Amazon!!!
