Helpful Score: 4

A comforting read, but not terribly imaginative, as this kind of retelling and modernization has been done before. As a matter of fact, the author seems to have taken the basis for her story from other works, or why else would Ella's father have been a book seller? It seems to me that the one distinguishing characteristic of Cinderella in all the variations I've read is her love of books and her father's love of books. Can't anybody think of something new?
