My review of Cinderelliot:
I absolutely loved this story. It’s so well-written and I could feel Elliot’s pain. I have liked boys who already had girlfriends and I’ve also liked straight girls before, so I know how that feels…
It’s a stunning story of love, betrayal, and a twist of the classic Cinderella fairytale. Each chapter is written in a poetic form that flows beautifully and tells the uniquely sad story of unrequited love.
I also believe that the way the main character, Elliot describes the boy’s girlfriend is how many of us secretly (or otherwise 🤣) think about their loved ones other half and wish to win their affection.
Overall, the story pulls on people heartstrings and I very much enjoyed reading it. I liked putting myself in all the character’s shoes. I highly recommend Cinderelliot and hope you love it as much as I do.
