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!!!!!

Cinderella 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.
