In this second installment of the Cinderella Smith series, Stephanie Barden again manages to serve up several great lessons in a story that's a lot of fun to read. Kids will love the bouncy, fun-loving Cinderella Smith and her friends and appreciate her serious side and unique take on life. They'll understand the hurt she feels when an ex-best friend says mean things to her in class and the things she thinks of to remedy the situation. Readers who've read both books will feel even more a part of Cinderella's life and will certainly look forward to reading about what happens to her next.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
