Summary from Amazon.co.uk:
CHARM is a beautifully illustrated re-telling of the Cinderella story which takes all the much-loved elements of the classic fairytale (the handsome prince, the fairy godmother, the enchanted mouse, the beautiful girl and, of course, the iconic balls) and puts a modern spin on the characters, their motives and their desires.
This is fun, contemporary, sexy, and perfect for fans of ONCE UPON A TIME, GRIMM, SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN and more.
A couple of months ago a lovely publishing friend gave me a copy of Poison by Sarah Pinborough. It ended my reading slump and made me excited about books again - it's THAT good. Charm is the second in Sarah Pinborough's series of fairytale retellings, and focuses on Cinderella herself. I can't wait to read it and there's not long to wait, either... yay!
