Abstract (from GR)
It’s been almost a year since eighteen-year-old Ella Rodriguez was in a car accident that left her crippled, scarred, and without a mother. After a very difficult recovery, she’s been uprooted across the country and forced into the custody of a father that abandoned her when she was a young child. If Ella wants to escape her father’s home and her awful new stepfamily, she must convince her doctors that she’s capable, both physically and emotionally, of living on her own. The problem is, she’s not ready yet. The only way she can think of to start healing is by reconnecting with the one person left in the world who’s ever meant anything to her—her anonymous Internet best friend, Cinder.
Hollywood sensation Brian Oliver has a reputation for being trouble. There’s major buzz around his performance in his upcoming film The Druid Prince, but his management team says he won’t make the transition from teen heartthrob to serious A-list actor unless he can prove he’s left his wild days behind and become a mature adult. In order to douse the flames on Brian’s bad-boy reputation, his management stages a fake engagement for him to his co-star Kaylee. Brian isn’t thrilled with the arrangement—or his fake fiancée—but decides he’ll suffer through it if it means he’ll get an Oscar nomination. Then a surprise email from an old Internet friend changes everything.

The book is new adaptation of the classic fairy tale Cinderella. There is no doubt how the story line will end after reading of abstract. So why you should read this book?
The problem with fairy tales is that most of them bigin with tragedy. I understand the reasoning behind it. No one likes a pampered heroine.
The answer is easy, because it's book by Kelly Oram and it's very pleasant to read it. And even you know the main plot of the book you don't know about many nice details. You never get bored.

The story is told by Ella's as well as Cinder's point of view. So you always are courious for next chapter, different point of view, different events. I have to say that I really like both stories I really liked both of the characters.

Even if you could expet that the book is only about the typical love story, it's not true. There is much more in the the book. Especially in the Ella's story, after her accident she never be the same in one way but in the other she is the same as she ever be.

The author makes Ella's story interesting. She showed the cruelty of people, judging according to the first sight in the contrast with strength of true love.

I grow fond of majority characters in this books, one for all Juliette. Meeting the Kyle Hamilton from V is for Virgin book in the story was a moment of surprice and fun for me. And also it was only for short time.

To sum up I would like to recommand the book to all fairy tale lovers especially of Cinderella, to all who likes happy endings and book where you can find pearls of wisdom.
