The Cinderella Pact: A Great Summer Read!

One day I went to my local library to get a new book to read. I naturally head to the “S” isle to look for a Danielle Steel novel.   I browse through the shelf; “Sisters” read it, “Granny Dan” read it, “Full Circle” read it, “The House on Hope Street” read it.  There wasn’t much on the shelf that I hadn’t read so I browsed a little further down the shelf.   Being a Disney lover there was one title that jumped out at me,“The Cinderella Pact” by Sarah Strohmeyer.   I admit that I am one the does judge a book by its cover.  I don’t read the back cover because I want to be surprised at what happens.  This book had a glittery blue cover and a sparkly shoe on it, so this is the one I picked!

I don’t want to give too much of the story away but here is the short and sweet of it.  The protagonist, Nola Delvin, is an over weight woman who creates an alter ego through her written words. Her thin, stylish, British alter ego becomes very popular.  So popular that she is offered movie deals, TV appearance, and live interviews.  Nola needs to find away to pull this off without revealing that she is the overweight diva behind the words of the thin young lady she's created!

If reading isn’t your thing, don’t worry. Lifetime has produce a movie based on this same novel called “Lying to be perfect”
