I have to admit - I'm seriously late with this review and reading this story. I had some issues with the format - couldn't get the ARC on my Kindle, then it wouldn't open on my computer anymore and.. well.. Let's just say I was so intrigued by the synopsis that I ended up buying a finished copy instead! I couldn't say no to something that sounded like a Cinderella-retelling, but contemporary and with LGBTQIA+ characters. I just couldn't. Was it worth it? Wasn't it? Only one way to find out, folks!
Can you imagine my face when I came across this? Cinderella Boy? That equals a Cinderella retelling, but LGBTQIA+? I don't even want to try and describe my reaction but there was screaming involved - and maniacally clicking the request-button. Did it live up to my expectations? Did it blow me away?
Like fairy tale retellings? Like dark stories? Dark fairy tale retellings? Yes? Check out "Owl Eyes" by Molly Lazer - a dark Cinderella retelling!
