Book Review: Cinderella’s Escape by Gita Reddy




About the Book

Cinderella’s Escape is a modern day retelling of the fairy tale. Unfortunately, it has no fairy godmother to help Anna Maria, our heroine. That doesn’t bother Anna Maria. She believes Cinderella would have escaped even without her fairy godmother. She would have had to. It’s called survival.
Readers will love the story and the most unexpected twist. Recommended for kids and adults alike.


My Review

I received a free ecopy of this book from the author for an honest review.

Cinderella’s Escape starts out as a modern day Cinderella story. Anna Maria finds herself in a situation similar to Cinderella’s. She has an evil stepmother, Priscilla, and two spoiled, mean stepsisters. Priscilla is much worse than the original stepmother in the fairy tale. It’s hard to believe but it’s true.

Anna Maria knows that she can’t wait to see if Prince Charming saves her so she has to find a way to escape before it’s too late. She’s a strong, resourceful, and independent girl.  

I have read several books by Gita Reddy and this is my favorite one so far. It’s a short story that all ages will enjoy.


Available on Amazon.
