II ended As Kate and her boyfriend Johnny embark on an adventure from New York to Italy and Poland in search of the mysterious slippers they will be tested in ways they never imaginedBecause when you harness Cinderella's magic danger and evil are sure to foll. Overall I liked this I thought it was a really solid seuel to Cinderella's Dress and it was so good to see the conclusion of everyone's storyThere was a lot less of Elsie in this book which was sad But I understand why her health is failing and she's no longer the Keeper Most of this book actually took place out of America so we only got a bit of Josie and Kate's mom too But it allowed other characters to shine which I liked We also got to meet Johnny's parents Mrs Day is a sweetie and Mr Day seems like a really OK guyNessa I was never really sure how I felt about her I liked her at the end of the first book but in this one I always felt kind of off balance I never really hated her but I never really adored her either view spoilerShe has a lot of ideas about the dresses and sometimes her attitude was a little too cavalier about them and she brushed off Kate and her duties than once That bugged me I also leaned little towards how Johnny felt at least at the beginning all her ordering Kate around really got on my nerves after a while but I think it was supposed to But I have to admit she did have her moments where she improved so in the end I was kind of ambivalent toward her I didn't hate her but I didn't love her hide spoiler

I received this book from Netgalley and Entangled Teen in exchanged for an honest review See the full post for the blog tour at For many young girls there is no better dress than the one that graces the pages of the fairytale Cinderella In their wistful imaginations they close their eyes and transport themselves to The Ball in their magical new gown sewn with magic searching for Prince Charming But the story doesn’t end there We all know that at the stroke of Midnight Cinderella must dash away as to not reveal her true identity But in her wake she leaves behind one token that proves her existence The magnificent glass slipper These shoes have spurred many a dream and an abundance of shoe addictions These are the shoes to rule them all But what if these shoes were real Would they hold the same magical powers as predicted in the story told for generations and generations hence Or would they be even powerful than we could have ever imagined This is what Shonna Slayton explores in the seuel to her first book Cinderella’s DressShonna Slayton has landed upon a very interesting angle in which to work the fairytale retelling craze by not simply remaking the Disney version of Cinderella Instead she has taken a story that we all know and made it the derivative of her own original plot While the story rotates around the crux that is Cinderella’s story she creates her own plane of reality which is set in the era of the 1940’s Slayton picks up where she left off in Cinderella’s Dress by immediately addressing the absence of the shoes So if you haven’t read the first book TURN BACK NOW or you may encounter some spoilers However I will do my best to conceal any major plot points I appreciate where Slayton has taken each of her characters Now that the war has ended her characters are now left to live in the post war world which leaves them all changed in their own way War touches everyone and Slayton does a great job of showing that even in the most subtle of ways Each character has evolved and has begun to grow into themselves Each character is well rounded and has their individual arch which is something that not many authors achieve Her follow through in this development is very well done and not hard to miss In the first book I felt that there may have been an imbalance when it came to the plot about just Kate’s day to day life as opposed to her life in reference to being a Keeper of the Wardrobe There was a lot of backstory that I felt could have been left behind and not enough about the dress In fact there would be several chapters with no mention whatsoever about the dresses However I wanted to keep going and see how things changed in the second book I believe that Slayton has found a better balance between the plot about Kate and the plot about Kate and the story of Cinderella It is a difficult task to manage two seemingly similar plot lines throughout the same story and I believe that Slayton has gotten better at this with the practice of writing this series I do still wish that there was in reference to the legend of Cinderella but perhaps that is not the goal of the book In any case I enjoyed the plot for what it is and will not try to wish it into being something elseI appreciate the attention to detail that Slayton has placed on the accuracy in this work Her nuances are spot on all the way down to the slang the teenagers used in that time I love this time period and its existence in this book was the second reason I was so drawn to this book the first being that it was about the wardrobe of Cinderella For this I very much enjoyed being ushered into that time in a realistic way It was refreshing to take a break from 2015 and relax in the times of the 1940’s even though that time period was nothing but chaotic The fact that I was able to so vividly picture the reality Slayton has created within the confines of the 1940s is only further proof that her development of the story in this regard is sound I give this book 35 out of 5 stars I was so very excited to read this book and its predecessor but it some ways was left wanting When the title is Cinderella’s Shoes you expect the majority of the book to be dedicated to that purpose What I encountered was closer to half So in this regard I was slightly disappointed However the rest of the book and its charms were uite refreshing and a pleasant read It was delightful to read a story that took me back to a rich time period and engrossed me as soon as I arrived For this the book is outstanding Should the intertwining of the stories been seamless and balanced the work would be perfect
