For some reason my expectations were a bit low for this book, but I ended up happily surprised to really like it! Maybe it was the cover. I just thought it would be too cheesy, but it's not! In case you're curious there's no white haired girl in the book. The main character has long red hair (until she's a white cat), and the fairy godmother is old with gray hair.
The story was told from 4 different characters. In other books changing from character to character can be annoying, but with this book it worked really well. The POV changes were predictable, which was nice (Each chapter changed to the next character in the same rotating order). Do you ever get annoyed when reading other books and the POV changes? You're yelling, "Wait! No! Go back!" Well that didn't happen for me in this book. The author did a phenomenal job transitioning from voice to voice.
Breena was a great character to cheer for. She didn't always make the best choices. She learned from mistakes, and I liked her better for them. There was a prince in the story too of course. I love stories with Princes! This was an entertaining, fun read. I recommend it to anyone who loves a good fairy tale. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series!
