Kate finds out that she's the next keeper of the real Cinderella's dresses even though she simply wants to create window displays at the department store where she's working. When long-lost relatives from Poland arrive with a steamer trunk they claim holds the
Cinderella's dresses, life gets complicated. Now, her father is missing in action, her new sweetheart, Johnny, is stuck in the middle of battle, and her great aunt is losing her wits, and the descendants of the wicked stepsisters will stop at nothing to get what they think they deserve. Kate has to unravel the mystery before it's too late. ABOUT THE AUTHOR
SHONNA SLAYTON finds inspiration in reading vintage diaries written by teens who, despite using different slang, sound a lot like teens today. While writing Cinderella's Dress
she reflected on her days as a high-school senior in British Columbia when she convinced her supervisors at a sportswear store to let her design a few windows--it was glorious fun while it lasted. When not writing, she enjoys amaretto lattes and spending time with her husband and children in Arizona.
