In this 21st century take on the Cinderella story, our heroine is shy, lonely and embarassed by her name and her size. She's bullied by other girls, but new girl Charmaine becomes a friend and encourages her to join a hip-hop dance clas. Gaining confidence makes her decide to try out a glamorous new look to impress a boy, but it all goes horribly wrong. Even with a great new look, and a new cool name, can she succeed in the talent contest - and charm her prince into noticing her?
This short chapter book is a fun read that will appeal to girls. Dyslexia-friendly and ideal for reluctant readers, it offers comfort and reassurance to those who lack confidence, as well as a realistic hope of happy ever after!
