Julie Wright – Glass Slippers, Ever After, and Me

“If fairy godmothers existed, there would never be an emptyspace in the freezer where the ice cream goes. Any responsible fairy godmotherwould keep that space magically stocked at all times.”

When aspiring author Charlotte Kingsley finally gets published, she thinks all her dreams are finally coming true. But the trouble begins when her publicity firm reinvents her quirky online presence into a perfectly curated dream life. Gone are the days of sweatpants posts and ice cream binges with her best friend and downstairs neighbor, Anders, replaced instead with beautiful clothes, orchestrated selfies, and no boyfriend. Only, that carefully curated fairytale life is ruining her self esteem and making her feel like a fraud.

When another bestselling author takes Charlotte under her wing–almost like a fairy godmother–she helps Charlotte see the beautiful person she already is and the worth of being authentic. But is it too late to save her relationship with Anders? The clock is quickly ticking toward midnight, and Charlotte must decide between her fairytale life and the man she loves while she tries to figure out if she is the woman in peasant clothes or the woman in the ball gown.
