A fun and girly twist on another super-popular theme: fairy tales!

“plenty of momentum as well as
    appealing heroines . . .
    action-packed . . .
a beginners’ Hogwarts, in which
readers figure out, along with Cinda,
how the magical school operates
and who to trust . . .
the execution is highly diverting”
~ Booklist

Cinda's totally evil stepsisters are out to make her life miserable. The Steps tease Cinda, give her terrible advice about life at the academy, and even make her look bad in front of her new friends, Red, Snow, and Rapunzel! But when Cinda overhears the Steps plotting a villainous deed that could ruin Prince Awesome's ball, Cinda, her new friends, and a pair of magical glass slippers have to stop them--before the last stroke of midnight!
