Book Summary Can the fairy tale bring Charlotte the happiness she’s looking for or was he always there to begin with?
A modern reimagined Cinderella story.
When aspiring author Charlotte Kingsley finally gets published, she thinks all her dreams have come true. But the trouble begins when her publicity firm reinvents her quirky online presence into a perfectly curated dream life. Gone are the days of sweatpant posts and ice cream binges with her best friend, Anders, replaced instead with beautiful clothes, orchestrated selfies, and no boyfriend. Only, that carefully curated fairy tale life is ruining her self-esteem and making her feel like a fraud.
When a bestselling author takes Charlotte under her wing—almost like a fairy godmother—she helps Charlotte see the beautiful person she already is and the worth of being authentic. But is it too late to save her relationship with Anders? The clock is quickly ticking towards midnight, and Charlotte must decide between her fairy tale life and the man she loves before he’s gone forever.

My Review

Every aspiring writer dreams of getting that big break and making it big in the literary world. The main character Charlotte Kingsley, writes re-imagined fairy tales and she has this exact dream and it comes true. With the "dream come true" also comes many unseen problems that she'd never thought of. Her life changes in an instant and Charlotte's not sure how to handle it all. Charlotte's world-changing book is not fiction but one of handling life in a "Non" Cinderella way. That's where the humor is in this book, in that Charlotte's life is far different from the fiction Cinderella. Between her publisher, agent, and publicist, Charlotte's boyfriend Anders doesn't even recognize her anymore. The angst is high as the couple try to come to grips with all of the changes and whether or not their relationship can be saved. With a slow start to the novel, things pick up in the middle and finally comes to a sweet and satisfying end that truly does make you believe in fairytale endings.
