Kathleen Jaffe’s #CBR5 Review #4: Cinderella’s Secret Diary Book 1 – Lost by Ron Vitale

Cinderellas Secret Diary Book1

Disclaimer: I received a free electronic version of this book for review purposes. However, the opinions expressed here are my own and exactly what they would have been had I paid for this book.

Cinderella’s Secret Diary Book 1: Lost by Ron Vitale is, at its simplest, the story of what happens to Cinderella after ‘Happy Ever After.’ A few paragraphs in, I thought, ‘Hmmm. He’s novelized Into the Woods.’ (It’s a Stephen Sondheim musical, for the non-theatre geeks out there.) This is not a bad thing; anyone who knows me well knows of my deep and abiding affection for all things Sondheim.

The novel is written in the first person by Cinderella in the form of a diary that’s more a series of letters (to her long-gone Fairy Godmother) than it is a confessional, and beginning about four years after the fateful ball when she met and fell in love with her Prince.
