Book review Cinderella’s Dress by Shonna Slayton


Being a teenager during World War II is tough. Finding out you’re the next keeper of the real Cinderella’s dress is even tougher.

Kate simply wants to create window displays at the department store where she’s working, trying to help out with the war effort. But when long-lost relatives from Poland arrive with a steamer trunk they claim holds the Cinderella’s dress, life gets complicated.

Now, with a father missing in action, her new sweetheart shipped off to boot camp, and her great aunt losing her wits, Kate has to unravel the mystery before it’s too late.

After all, the descendants of the wicked stepsisters will stop at nothing to get what they think they deserve.

Jan Review

This is a book really pulled me in i really like the historical aspect of it being set in the depression.  I love how this a book based on a character most can identify with.  The author did a great job of having the reader feel like we back in that day and age and i really felt like i was experiencing this story for real.  I love the description of the dress and how Kate struggles to under what her strange Aunt Elise is trying to tell her.  I love how the book ends with just a hint of what to come in the next book and i will be reading and reviewing that shortly for an upcoming tour post so keep your eyes peeled.
