Twinderella, A Fractioned Fairy Tale

G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 2017
Written in perfect rhyme, Twinderella is a rich spin off the original Cinderella.
The story claims Cinderella was a twin, and this tells the true story of the two sisters and what happened to the quiet twin. While being forced to care for their evil step-sisters, the twins had their own dreams. When they were told they couldn’t go to the ball, God Mom appeared and changed things for them. The prince danced with both and fell in love. When the glass slipper fit both the twins, he had to choose. And so he did… you’ll have to find out how!
They titled it a ‘fractional’ tale because math and fractions fill the pages; math lovers will adore the story. A fun read where they live, “happ’ly ever half-ter.”
