I'm a big fan of seeing the other side of a story. Growing up, Donna Jo Napoli's ZEL and Gregory Maguire's WICKED and CONFESSIONS OF AN UGLY STEPSISTER were my first brushes with seeing the other side of a fairy tale. Since then, reading such stories through new eyes is always a fun experience for me.
Don't expect a long book. This is novella-length, and under sixty pages. Due to the short length, parts of the story are rather rushed, especially the ending. While I wish there had been more character depth and build-up at the end, I still really appreciated what Campbell did. While Ugly Stepsister Anna was a bit of a Debbie Downer, it was easy to see how selfish Cinderella could be. She often took things the wrong way, and never wanted to be a part of the family, before or after her father passed. Cinderella's stepmother doesn't like looking at her because she's the spitting image of her deceased husband, whom she loved. But she never sentenced Cinderella to work. Cinderella took that mantle up on her own. When the tailor sends over an unfinished dress for the ball, Cinderella doesn't even listen to the explanation, but freaks out. And the prince? He isn't as charming as you might think. Anna doesn't want to see her stepsister trapped with him, but what can she do? Cinderella is determined that no one wants the best for her!
