This story is enjoyable to read and I certainly appreciate the modernization incorporated. I wish that Daws had carried the twist even further. Although the characters and setting are written as modern, I think there is still too much of the original story. This retelling misses some of the potential available when the twist is hers to make.
It is a likable story, with a likable Cinderella and ‘Prince.’ I hope to encourage Daws to push herself a little further into the possibilities. There is room for improvement the next time around. I think the potential is there. My rating for this story is 4 stars.
