A Classical Fairytale Shaped into A Modern Day Narrative.


By Stacy Juba

“Fooling Around With Cinderella is a wonderful and exciting start to what promises to be the first in the Storybook Valley series.” https://walkerputsche.wordpress.com/

The story follows Jaine Andersen, an overworked, loyal and yet undervalued heroine, who is taken advantage by her sisters. Jaine is in desperate need of a change as she has been laid off from her job in a medical centre and applies for a marketing role at the local amusement park where she used to visit as a girl. Jaine manages to convince the general manager, Dylan Callahan, with her great ideas for the amusement park and Dylan offers Jaine a marketing position in November, when the park closes for the season, but in the meantime he manages to charm her into filling Cinderella’s glass slippers for the summer.

I admire the way Juba takes on a classical fairytale and shapes it to a modern-day narrative. Overall the story and its charm are still in tack, it is just wrapped differently.
