Description

She squeezes out the bathroom window and runs into the woods, where she eventually reaches Cinderella’s fabled tomb. She breaks it apart and rebuilds it into a wholly original and captivating story where girls finally decide for themselves who lives happily ever after. I loved to see Sophia, Constance and Amina team up against King Manford, I loved the female versus male dynamic and was just cheering them on, trying to read as fast as I could to see what would happen. FIRST HE TRAPPED CINDERELLA, NEXT HE MADE WOMAN HAVE NO POWER AND LASTLY HE TRIED TO MAKE SOPHIA DIE A SLOW AND PAINFUL DEATH! Find out about the latest book in the 'Girl, Missing' series, Secret Sister, in this short video by author Sophie McKenzie.

After witnessing the King's cruelty, and the citizens impotence in the face of such evil, Sophia can't stand it anymore. Another reviewer used the terms "predictable, important, and frustrating" to describe this book, and I have to wholeheartedly agree. I read the letter inside as I have done a million times since it arrived the morning of my sixteenth birthday. Podsumowując, warto uświadamiać ludzi o panującej nierówności i zagrzewać ich do walki z krzywdzącym systemem, ale NIE W TAKI SPOSÓB.Cinderella Is Dead went past the early stages of the story we all know, and gave us a picture of the setting 200 years after Cinderella dies. I kept thinking about this book long after I finished it, and I know it’s one I will revisit in the future. By giving the reader Sophia Grimmins, a sassy protagonist who is prepared to challenge the patriarchy despite her fears, and to stand up for what she believes in, Bayron's wish is granted.

Because this is twisty, bloody bleak, harsh, dark, deliciously disturbing and dystopian version of the fairytale, a unique, creative, refreshing retelling! The annual ball is coming up, and since the girls are now 16, they’ll be required to attend each year until chosen by a suitor.Furthermore, Sophia is prepared to fight for freedom and strive to release the people of Lille from their grinding existence, whatever the cost to herself. From the distinctive front cover, celebrating Sophia Grimmins as proud, beautiful, defiant, fierce and brown skinned, to her explosive story inside, Kalynn Bayron reclaims the iconic fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm with her new YA fantasy, Cinderella Is Dead. Failure to comply will result in imprisonment and seizure of all assets belonging to your immediate family. She is in love with Erin (even though Erin refuses to rebel) and on the night of the first ball, Sophia makes a run for it.

They realize the most dangerous men are the ones who sit in plain sight daring to be challenged, and they’re determined to do more than challenge them.When things go deeply awry at the night of the ball, Sophia escapes the palace and sets out to make her own destiny. Flipping the Cinderella tale on its head, Bayron’s take challenges patriarchy with kick-butt heroines and a counter-story that will forever change how readers perceive fairy tales. In fact, the only characters that seemed to be interesting (Luke and Fairy Godmother) are barely there. The men of the kingdom will select their wives based on the girls’ good looks and displays of finery. King Manford doesn't really have a reason to be the way that he is, there's no point to his villainous nature, and I felt like the author kept pulling twists and turns and reveals from her sleeve at random to help make sense of things but they didn't add up.

Constance introduces Sophia to the real history of her family and what happened to Cinderella two hundred years ago. Another thing that immediately threw my off and made me roll my eyes was the insta love that goes on. Deft in sword play, she allures Sophia with her confidence, pride in her identity and belief in herself. She hides out in Cinderella's mausoleum, where she meets Constance, a descendant of Cinderella and her stepsisters.

But other than that, this was a great read, and I highly recommend it if you're looking for a fast-paced book about a queer black girl trying to take down the patriarchy. The writing was piercing, the words sharp like a needle and I loved how the first chapters built this cruel, patriarchal world in which it was impossible for a young, queer woman to strive or live without fear.
