LAURA'S BOOK OF THE MONTH

CINDERELLA IS DEAD

KALYNN BAYRON

It's 200 years since Cinderella found her prince, but the fairytale is over.

Sophia knows the story though, off by heart. Because every girl has to recite it daily, from when she's tiny until the night she's sent to the royal ball for choosing. And every girl knows that she has only one chance. For the lives of those not chosen by a man at the ball ... are forfeit.

But Sophia doesn't want to be chosen - she's in love with her best friend, Erin, and hates the idea of being traded like cattle. And when Sophia's night at the ball goes horribly wrong, she must run for her life. Alone and terrified, she finds herself hiding in Cinderella's tomb. And there she meets someone who will show her that she has the power to remake her world ...

An electrifying twist on the classic fairytale that will inspire girls to break out of limiting stereotypes and follow their dreams!

NOVEMBER 1ST-29TH

On our Patreon, we have a book club membership for £3 a month, where you can offer questions, ideas on the monthly book, and contribute to the conversation, as well as other benefits. We wanted to create a community in these weird times where people felt a little less alone, and could join in with us on the podcast. It also helps to keep the podcast running, and supports us as creators. 

You do not need to join this if you just wish to read the book along with us. You can join below, if you want to.
