Cinderella is Dead is one of my new favorite novels inspired by a fairy tale. Kalynn Bayron
takes the original tale of Cinderella apart and turns it into a tale that is one entirely of her own creation. Sophia, the main character, lives in a world where girls are expected to go to one ball per year three years in a row to be taken prisoner by men to be their wives. The tale of Cinderella is used to excuse this idea. However, Sophia would rather spend the rest of her life with her girlfriend Erin. On the night of the ball, Sophia escapes and learns about the true tale of Cinderella. Along the way, Sophia meets Constance, the last living relative of Cinderella's stepsisters, and they team up to taken down the king. Bayron takes the story of Cinderella and reforms it into a completely new tale that is captivating and magical. I look forward to seeing what Bayron writes in the future.
