Publisher's Summary

Charlotte Kingsley loves to write and dreams of having her reimagined fairy tales published, but she keeps getting rejected over and over. And to top it all off, her best friend, Anders, gets engaged, making her realize she’s going to lose the Prince Charming who lives next door. After yet another rejection letter, Charlotte decides to switch gears. What if she wrote a book about celebrating women for who they really are instead of trying to create a fantasy world for them to visit? She could call it The Cinderella Fiction, fill it with practical advice for living authentically, become ridiculously successful, and then find the confidence to tell Anders how she feels before it’s too late. 

Encouraged with her plan, Charlotte’s new book practically writes itself, and a small publisher offers to publish it. As it’s a small company with limited resources, Charlotte decides to sink money into hiring a premier publicity firm to make her book a best seller. She also discovers that Anders has called off his engagement and wants to try a relationship with Charlotte. Suddenly her fairy tale dreams seem to be coming true. 

However, Charlotte’s publicist has very specific ideas about how to market the book - and the author. Charlotte, with her average looks, cluttered apartment, and penchant for ice cream, must undergo a total transformation in a social media makeover. People who see Charlotte through a carefully curated Instagram account will relate and naturally want to buy her book. 

At first, Charlotte is excited to enter this fantasy world and play “dress up”, and Anders reluctantly agrees to go along with it, even though it means he’s largely out of the picture. But the toll of her new life soon proves exhausting. Telling women to “be authentic” even while she herself is undergoing elaborating staging to get just the right image makes her feel like a fraud. Meanwhile, her relationship with Anders is falling apart, since he suspects their relationship is just another one of her carefully curated images. 

Charlotte must decide what she believes in: the fairy tale persona or the woman Anders has always loved - before he’s gone forever.

Adorable and Fun Characters

I enjoy this story. I believe it gave some insight into the life of a writer along with that of the book. The characters were interesting and flawed and they grew. A characters that grows is important to me. I did a lot of thinking and shaking my head. But I thought the story was weak executed.

Letty and Anders were great together. They were very good compliments and white they forgave easily and that used to bother me, makes sense now for two people that are "best friends." The relationship between Letty and the mom is interesting and I think more normal than I realize. I think the relationship between Kat and Letty is my favorite. it truly shows how non related can be family.

I listened to this on Audible and was very pleased by the performance of the reader.

The Narration doesn’t do it justice

This is one of my favorite books ever! However the narration sucks. She sounds like a souped up Siri. She sounds like Siri with emotions. It’s awful. I couldn’t even get two minutes in. It was so annoying.

That being said, I totally suggest reading this on your own. I promise you it’s worth the read!

Tried but could not finish

After fast forwarding through her mothers constant negative ranting and her dragging descriptions full of angst, I finally quit listening when she became derisive with her boyfriend a second time. Glad I didn’t pay for this.
