Victoria Brown lost her father four years ago. Her stepmother and her stepsister are bent on making her life miserable. Turning her into a pitiful maid, they force her to live a modern day re-enactment of Cinderella. But they don’t know that where there’s a Cinderella, there’s a Fairy Godmother and a Prince Charming who would do anything to bandage the damage in her life.
When an arrogant new student shows up in class, Victoria hates him at first sight. She seeks to avoid him but finds herself partnering with him in solving a mystery revolving around a ghost. And against her will, sparks fly.
Life takes a turn that rips Victoria off her innocence and places her stepmother as her footstool. Once, she’d wanted a chance for love, but all she wants now is revenge. And not even her Prince Charming can stand in her way.
Will she follow her heart and let love win, or will she follow her head and be a slave of vengeance?

Following the passing of Victoria’s father, her step-mother and step-sister no longer feel the need to hide their feelings of hatred toward her. Her tiny frame is evident of the physical abuse she endures. Despite the mistreatment she faces from her stepfamily, she still longs for them to love and accept her. Victoria’s step-sister, Cynthia, does all that she can to try to harm Victoria and cause her to lose her school scholarship. Enter Raheem. He’s the new foreigner at the girls’ school and Cynthia’s dying to sink her claws into him. However, her usual tricks do not work on him. Instead, he has set his sights on Victoria. What begins as a friendship slowly turns to more. This story about young love will make you believe in love once more – if you already didn’t.
This book was beyond being a Cinderella story! I stayed up until 3 am trying to finish it. Once I started reading it, I couldn’t stop. It was the best story I’ve read in a long time. To say Victoria went through a lot would be an understatement. Her step-mother and step-sister both hated her and tried all they could to make her life as miserable as possible both at home and at school. The new boy in school, Raheem, is such a great match for Victoria. After everything that she’s been through with the passing of her mother and father, she deserves more happiness in her life. I was also pleased when I read that Raheem’s father made it back safely to his family. I will be reading the other books as well. And I would also love to see more books featuring Raheem and Victoria in the future.
