Cinderella's Dress by Shonna Slayton


Cinderella's Dress by Shonna Slayton

In a war-torn world, one girl must deal with the absence of her father and brother (both sent to battle), a handsome boy who makes her giggle on sight, fighting the sexist nature of the 1940s to secure her spot as a department store window dresser, and a centuries old duty to guard none other than the Cinderella's dress. After all, the descendants of the wicked stepsisters will stop at nothing to get what they think they deserve.

About the Author

Shonna Slayton finds inspiration in reading vintage diaries written by teens, who despite using different slang, sound a lot like teens today. While writing Cinderella's Dress she reflected on her days as a high-school senior in British Columbia when she convinced her supervisors at a sportswear store to let her design a few windows--it was glorious fun while it lasted. When not writing, Shonna enjoys amaretto lattes and spending time with her husband and children in Arizona.
