Disclosure; I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. However, all opinions are my own!
It’s been almost a year since eighteen-year-old Ella Rodriguez was in a car accident that left her crippled, scarred, and without a mother. After a very difficult recovery, she’s been uprooted across the country and forced into the custody of a father that abandoned her when she was a young child. If Ella wants to escape her father’s home and her awful new stepfamily, she must convince her doctors that she’s capable, both physically and emotionally, of living on her own. The problem is, she’s not ready yet. The only way she can think of to start healing is by reconnecting with the one person left in the world who’s ever meant anything to her—her anonymous Internet best friend, Cinder.
Hollywood sensation Brian Oliver has a reputation for being trouble. There’s major buzz around his performance in his upcoming film The Druid Prince, but his management team says he won’t make the transition from teen heartthrob to serious A-list actor unless he can prove he’s left his wild days behind and become a mature adult. In order to douse the flames on Brian’s bad-boy reputation, his management stages a fake engagement for him to his co-star Kaylee. Brian isn’t thrilled with the arrangement—or his fake fiancée—but decides he’ll suffer through it if it means he’ll get an Oscar nomination. Then a surprise email from an old Internet friend changes everything.
About the Author;
Kelly Oram wrote her first novel at age fifteen–a fan fiction about her favorite music group, The Backstreet Boys, for which her family and friends still tease her. She’s obsessed with reading, talks way too much, and likes to eat frosting by the spoonful. She lives outside of Phoenix, Arizona with her husband and four children.
Cinderella has always been one of my favorite movies, growing up! Therefore, I have watched & read a LOT of movies & books that relate to Cinderella in some way. I was super happy when I was chosen to read this book, because, well, it’s Cinder and Ella!
I have to say that I picked it up just to see how it was going to be, to read a few pages and the next thing I knew, oops! I was done with the book! It was a great read! Imagine that book that you’ve read, that made you laugh, cry and smile – That book did this to me!
There isn’t too many parts that are graphic or inappropriate, which is great! I would have NO problem letting a 13-14 year old read this book!
