Cinderella is Dead is a totally original take on the Cinderella tale. This story takes place in Cinderella's kingdom several generations after she fell in love with her Prince. Her story is now the standard by which all women must model themselves in a strictly patriarchal society where women have no rights and must always act perfectly in hopes that their own Fairy Godmother may come.

Our main character is Sophia, a 16-year-old queen girl who is NOT content with the status quo. She is determined to break away from the chains society has placed her in. She teams up with Constance, another societal outsider with her own secrets. Can they find the way to their own Happily Ever After?

This book was a very quick read, kept you hooked from the start! ( )

Sophia does not want to go to the mandatory ball where girls in the kingdom are claimed by men. She finds the rules of the kingdom, and its adherence to the lore of Cinderella oppressive, dangerous, and unfair. But no one else seems to be fighting back, not the girl she loves (Erin) or her parents who know she doesn't fit in the system of how things have always been.
Soon Sophia finds herself in the dangerous position of being on the run and hiding in Cinderella's long forgotten crypt. She meets Constance and finds maybe she isn't alone after all and has found a partner in bringing the king and his system down.
This story turns the story of Cinderella on its head with a feminist bent in this retelling. ( )

This books was really good. I love retellings of fairy tales and this one had a great feminist twist. ( )

Cinderella is Dead is a fairytale retelling of the Cinderella story. Set two hundred years after Cinderella's death (an intriguing start to a novel, I was instantly hooked), teenage girls have to appear at an annual ball, hosted by the king, a descendant of Cinderella, where the men in their society choose wives. But if you're unlucky enough not to get chosen, you are disappeared, and no one hears from you again. Sophia doesn't want to be chosen. She would rather marry Erin than any man. So she flees, and finds herself working to take down the king.

I absolutely love fairytale retellings. I don't know what it is about them, but I can't get enough of them. Cinderella is Dead is a feminist take on the tale of Cinderella. It gave me some Handmaid's Tale vibes re: women's rights and their position in society. It also has a lesbian lead character, and a lesbian romance subplot. It's certainly a unique take on Cinderella and what happened after the end of the fairytale. It feels original, bringing something new to the table.

This is a really good YA book. It has an exciting beginning, and then things get even more exciting and dramatic as the story continues. The setting is almost dystopian, just in a fantasy world, with a tyrannical king, a curfew, propaganda and public executions. The tale of Cinderella is like their holy book, and following its teachings women are kept in their 'place' as second class citizens. The rules are also homophobic, causing problems for queer people of all genders. The magic in the Cinderella's story seems to be absent from the day to day lives of the characters, but to question its existence is illegal. The story gets more and more interesting as it progresses, as secrets and horrors are uncovered.

Sophia is a brilliant main character. She's sure of her sexuality, and is willing to fight and question everything, whilst also loving deeply, and she has her own insecurities. Whilst often in fairytales, girls are damsels in distress and the prince comes in to save them, Sophia says 'I'd like to be the one in armour, and I'd like to be the one doing the saving'. This book is a story about magic, adventure, romance, grief, sorrow and friendship. It's about two girls trying to save the world. There are plenty of soft romantic moments, and also plenty of pining. Love is complicated, and Sophia's love story is far from simple.

There's never a dull moment in this book. The story is gripping and I couldn't put it down. This book is empowering for girls, especially black and queer girls, and just all round a great story. ( )

THIS is how you write a retelling. Absolutely taken down to the bones and rebuilt into something ferocious and awesome about the evils of a patriarchy and how complicity furthers its power and the pain it inflicts. Also this thing is unabashedly and unapologetically queer, which is great. I wish I'd gotten to read it in high school. ( )
