When an opportunity to leave her home in New York and head to Paris appears, Angel grabs it – even if it means masquerading as her best friend Lily. That can’t be too hard, can it?
But faking things doesn’t come easy for Angel, so when she falls in love with her very own Prince Charming and he thinks she’s someone else, things start to get complicated.
Angel needs to stop her secrets unravelling if she wants to live happily ever after . . .
From exciting talent Jennifer Kloester comes this fabulous story about high society, mistaken identity, love, betrayal, friendship – and great clothes.
My Thoughts: (In 150 words or less.)
The Cinderella Moment was an enchanting modern fairytale. It was a captivating story that had me compulsively turning the pages. I ended up reading it in one sitting. There is fabulous fashion, an adventure in Paris, a sweet romance, a deliciously deceptive tangle of lies and a perfect little twist at the end. It is a story of friendship, of family, and of living your dreams and not letting other people stand in your way.
Well-written, light-hearted and highly enjoyable, The Cinderella Moment is a perfect YA contemporary for those who love romantic, fun, chick-lit style reads. It is also a clean read and suitable for younger teens. I highly recommend it. I am looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.
