Book Review: Cinderella's Dress by Shonna Slayton

Being a teen-ager during World War II is tough. Finding out you're the next keeper of the real Cinderella's dress is even tougher.

Kate simply wants to create window displays at the department store where she's working, trying to help out with the war effort. But when long-lost relatives from Poland arrive with a steamer trunk they claim holds the Cinderella's dress, life gets complicated.

Now, with a father missing in action, her new sweetheart shipped off to boot camp, and her great aunt losing her wits, Kate has to unravel the mystery before it's too late.

After all, the descendants of the wicked stepsisters will stop at nothing to get what they think they deserve.

With dystopia taking up space in the bookstores for me to find a young adult historical was almost a needle in a haystack. I found this book on the publishers website, and I knew I had to buy it right away. Kate lives in World War II and her family has been the guards of the fancy dresses of the Queen. They have a duty of protecting the dresses. While working she also has to deal with her father and brother are both fighting in the war, and her crush is also gone as well. Kate needs to solve the mystery of the dresses before it's too late.

My feelings for the book was simple I LOVE THIS BOOK! You feel Kate conflict of wanting to be independent, and doing what's right for her family. I especially love the fiction storytelling! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
