Dani’s Review I almost started my review the same was Jamie did, then saw her opening and changed my mind. We’re clearly merging minds. Anyway, I did like this book. I’m a whopping 15 years older than Annie and Jason, but I was still able to very much relate with both of them. I thought they were incredibly well-written for 10 year olds, as I got a sense of their youthfulness and energy, along with the beginnings of pubescent awkwardness. Annie was so optimistic and naïve, constantly having ideas and insisting that things were done a certain way, so I can […]

I was never cool at school! I felt so much for Isaiah, as I could relate a little. I mean, I had some friends, but I also had people who were only nice to me when I could help them with homework. I struggled […]

We both really enjoyed this cute Middle Grade novel. We aren’t sure if we are the right people to be reviewing this because it is definitely right for the target audience, but it may have been a little too young for us. We thought that the story itself could have easily been a YA novel — since Cinderella (Rose) was 17 and there were some mature scenes in this one, which are discussed in the spoiler section below. We thought this was a really unique retelling of Cinderella. There have been a lot of Cinderella retellings recently, but it was really […]
