Once upon a time, there was a little girl who wanted to be a princess.
Instead, she grew up! This book is the true in-depth stories of what happened to the little girls who once dreamed of growing up and becoming princesses. Instead, they turned 20 and had to face abortion, abuse, heartbreak, body issues, lost religions, bad sex and so much more. They had to find salvation in family, girlfriends, love, spirituality and every now and then a real prince charming. This is not your conventional happily ever after, because real women cry, hurt, laugh, live and love.
A modern Cinderella turns 20 and meets many un-charming men who have no job, no personality or no heart. Pumpkin carriages become car payments. Falling in love is exchanged for succumbing to lust. In a world where fairytales so easily melt away, there are a few traces of happily ever after that can still be found in real life. Wonderful things like the ugly stepsisters we have traded in for amazing girlfriends and the beautiful fact that now we can be driven career women instead of residing ourselves to a life of servitude making a man happy.
There is no longer any need to be whisked away to a castle because we have our own apartments that we can decorate any way we like without worrying about a prince who will leave the toilet seat up. This book is filled with modern day Cinderella stories. The Cinderella story of the girl who lost her precious virtue but found the women inside her with the help of a real Fairy Godmother. The Cinderella story of the girl who found out that the size of your body means nothing once you have the right Prince charming.
The Cinderella story of the girl who found her perfect shoes. The Cinderella story of the girl who had to leave her religion to find happiness. The Cinderella story of the girl who lost her mind but found her laugh and so many other stories of real women. The real stories of what happens in your twenties. How real women find ways to deal with it and the real happily ever after we find within ourselves. The one thing Cinderella had right is that the right pair of shoes is a girl's best calling card and all smart girls know, that there is nothing better than a pair of red-soled, Christian Louboutin high heels. We may not be able to magically transform into princesses anymore, but with the right pair of shoes, we can be anything we want to be and go to places we never dreamed we could!
