An adult version: Cinderelleper: A FairyTale Satire by Ford Forkum

image

 

This author totally pulled off a play on the children’s fairytale we all read. I knew there’d be a twist but dam. Poor Cinderelleper feared worse in this tale, she has leprosy!! The stepmother didn’t have it bad in the regular story, this one she gets her due!!! I always wanted her to get hers!! It’s funny, sad and absurd, that’s what makes it a cool read. It’s different, not serious or sappy. I Applaud the author for catching my attention. I gave five stars because this is this author’s genre, he’s awesome at it!!!!!

So many families can resonate with this book. Can people change? Can families mend? The circa from 1950’s Cara’s teen years ( the main character) to now her golden years. We read how events within a family shapes others futures within the family. Domestic abuse is a horrible thing for families to go through. My heart was broken many times reading this. Cara has lived through a broken heart since her teen years. The secrets she kept, the secrets her sister Gloria kept shaped their families for generations. Download and find out what the characters teach us. Full of realistic characters, a page turner for sure.

i consumed the jabs

at my demeanor, because

i knew no other way

and now others risk

self-worth to wash their hands

or take a piss?

it ends, humiliation in all forms,

or hell begins.

Pre-order Ford Forkum new release .99. Releases Valentines Day #NewRelease @FordForkum

imageCinderella never had it so bad. In this darkly comedic retelling of the classic fairy tale, her woes become worse when she discovers she has leprosy. Being chosen as the prince’s bride seems more unlikely than ever, but in a world where everything is turned upside-down, Cinderelleper, as she’s now called, just might have a chance at a happy ending after all.

Cinderelleper is a scathing satire that mockingly combines elements of the sentimental 1950 Walt Disney animated film with the gruesomeness of the Grimm Brothers original tale. Outlandish plot twists take the story beyond parody and into a realm that is both dark and magically absurd.

i breathe embers

ignition  on your skin,

a smaze settles with

misanthropy for

anyone with less

a burden

as we  plunge, to bear

a steady stream,

aware of loss.
