Hey everyone! I’m excited to be here today on the Teen Reader’s Diary to share an excerpt from my new book with you. The book is Cinder & Ella. It’s a contemporary retelling of the classic fairy tale Cinderella. I love Cinderella. It’s always been my favorite, and I always knew that eventually I would write my own adaptation of it.
In my version “Prince Charming” and “Cinderella” (Cinder & Ella) are old online buddies. They met through Ella’s book blog when she wrote a review about Cinder’s favorite book that he felt compelled to argue with. What she doesn’t know is that in real life Cinder happens to be Brian Oliver, the famous actor whose been cast to play the lead in the movie adaptation of the book. You can figure this out from the summary of the book so I’m not spoiling anything, I promise! Part of the fun of the book is knowing who Brian is and waiting to see what will happen when Ella finally figures it out.
In the beginning of the book tragedy strikes and Ella disappears from the online world. When that happens Cinder & Ella lose contact. The excerpt I have for you guys today is part of the fist conversation they have after they reconnect. Hope you enjoy it!
