-I always dreamed to be a writer.- --Grace Chen
In this not-so-classic spin on the beloved Cinderella fairy tale, Cinderella-Grace is no meek, victimized servant, resigned to doing chores and missing balls. Grace Chen's Cinderella is a feisty, fun-loving adventurer who isn't afraid to speak up for herself--a character who in many ways parallels Grace herself, a young woman who loves to write, sing and dance, and has Down Syndrome.
Cinderella-Grace's life changes when her mother dies and her father remarries. Her stepmother and stepsisters are characteristically evil, but Cinderella-Grace, with some help from her fairy godmother and God, ignores their spite, attends a ball and falls in love with Prince Ronald.
But unlike the traditional Cinderella, Cinderella-Grace's story doesn't end with a wedding--her story continues. Cinderella-Grace and Prince Ronald honeymoon on the Titanic, move to Beverly Hills, become international spies, and have children--three beautiful princesses who are also enrolled in spy school.
Full of voice, spunk, helicopter rescues and full-colour illustrations, Cinderella-Grace echoes and embellishes a fairy tale proving, that with dedication and unbounded imagination, one can do anything.
