Ok, I need to do some catch-up #2021ReadingChallenge posts, because I’ve not posted anything since mid-February. Not too many catch-up posts, sadly, because I’ve not read much since mid-February. But I did finish this gem back when I was in Perth, and it was great! Cinderella is dead, and 200 years later, Sophia lives in the Kingdom that has built its mythology, and its treatment of women, around her story. But Sophia doesn’t want to be chosen by a man at the Royal ball. And she doesn’t want the girl she loves to be chosen, either. In world which puts the power of choice firmly in the hands of men, this fairytale revisited examines what happens when a young woman stands up and makes her own decisions. A completely fascinating tale, with a unique look at possibly my favourite kind of novel – what happens after the happily ever after?

About the Author

NSWPRC Officer, Teacher Librarian, English teacher and social media advocate. I've been teaching in Western Sydney for my entire teaching career, and love my job more than I love Neil Gaiman. (That's a lot, in case you're wondering!) I stalk authors (but always politely), fangirl over books, and drink coffee. And one of my guilty prides about my children is that they all have favourite authors. All opinions are my own.
