The Cinderella Moment - 
Jennifer Kloester
Released: July 24, 2013
Publisher: Penguin Teen AUS

Synopsis: A love of fashion.

A couture competition.

A once-in-a-lifetime chance . . .
 


Angel Moncoeur has always wanted to be a fashion designer, but without money or connections, it's going to be a challenge. When an opportunity to leave her home in New York and head to Paris appears, Angel grabs it – even if it means masquerading as her best friend Lily. That can't be too hard, can it?

But faking things doesn't come easy for Angel, so when she falls in love with her very own Prince Charming and he thinks she's someone else, things start to get complicated.

Angel needs to stop her secrets unravelling if she wants to live happily ever after . . .

From exciting talent Jennifer Kloester comes this fabulous story about high society, mistaken identity, love, betrayal, friendship – and great clothes.


What I thought: This book wasn't what I was expecting - it's definitely not just a new re-telling of the Cinderella story. It does have some of the key elements, but really, that's where the similarities for me ended. Kloester is a really fantastic writer, but the story just never really grabbed my attention enough. Angel felt too forced, and the whole situation was too unrealistic for my tastes - I had a really hard time trying to wrap my imagination around it all. I mean, all the characters were well written, but I just didn't connect with any of them. Except Nick of course, because well, he's a male character.

"You really are an angel" he said, putting her down...

Some of the lines were cheesy, but still, my heart sort of jumped when Nick spoke. So if you love a good male lead, and you love fairy-tale style re-tellings then this is the book for you!


The Good: Nick was my favourite character - I couldn't help but love him.


The Bad: The story dragged on for me and didn't grab my attention unfortunately.
