SPOILERSPrincess of Glass

Quote: "But why are you so filthy? Did Mrs. Hanks tell you to clean out all the chimneys in the middle of the night?"
Ellen's tears dried as if by magic, and a sly, closed look came over her face. "Just trying to do my duty," she said stiffly.
I really liked Princess of the Midnight Ball, a retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses (my fav) so I thought I'd give this retelling of Cinderella a chance. Pretty simple reading, which I enjoy about it! And there's some continuation of the last book which I didn't think was going to happen. I'm not personally fond of Ellen (the Cinderella character) and her random mood swings and motivations but since it was mostly Poppy's (one of the twelve dancing princesses) story of trying to figure out what was going on in this strange kingdom, I didn't mind it too much.
