The war may be over, but Kate Allen’s life is still in upheaval. Not only has she discovered that Cinderella was real, but now she’s been made Keeper of the Wardrobe, her sole responsibility to protect Cinderella’s mystical dresses from the greed of the evil stepsisters’ modern descendants.
But Cinderella’s dresses are just the beginning.

As Kate and her boyfriend, Johnny, embark on an adventure from New York to Italy and Poland in search of the mysterious slippers, they will be tested in ways they never imagined.
Because when you harness Cinderella’s magic, danger and evil are sure to follow…

this book does not need Cindrella’s dress to be read and understood but by reading Cinderella’ s dress first you get a better idea and background first. You also get more depth to the characters and the parts they play. Each character has a role and has importance even if it isn’t seen at first.

In Shonna Slayton's Cinderella's Shoes, she imagines a world in which not only can the shoes of the real Cinderella, or Kopciuszek, exist and helped the prince find her because she was the only one who... ...more

Cinderella's Shoes by Shonna Slayton is a a very unique and creative story (and series) based off the classic Cinderella fairy tale.

This book was much darker than the first book, but I think that was necessary to show the growth of the characters and the legend. I think the author did a wonderful job with both of these books in keeping a sense of fairytale about the story while translating that fairytale into more modern time... ...more
