I understand that I am an adult who is reading a young adult novel and that alone may influence how I feel about the ending but I am disappointed. The story was engaging and interesting and the heroine was a very likeable character. I even was pulling for her the entire time to fall in love with the Prince but once I got what I wanted in the ending, the author immediately stole it away from us.
The main character Kat gets sucked into a story book and becomes one of Cinderella's step-sisters. She alone knows that this is a book and is tasked with making the entire story come true with very little help and none of the plot set up for her in advance. She works hard at social reform and in the process catches the eye of the prince. Long story short, she falls in love with him and he loves her in return. They marry and as soon as they say " I do" she goes back to her world. I was angry about this. I had a feeling that no time would have passed in the real world once she completed the story but I was hoping that she would actually get to live out the life she planned with the man she loved enough to marry and actually get to retain those memories when she returned. (Sort of like in the lion the witch and the wardrobe when the kids grew old and lived their lives in the other world but still returned as children once they were done) But no. She said I do and was instantly kicked out of the world that contained the man she loved and sent back to her world again to get a date with a cute guy?? That was my consolation prize?? A date with a cute boy after she spent over a year falling in love and planning a life with a man!!
I was just not happy with the last chapter. I feel like it ruined a wonderful book that I didn't want to put down. I'm afraid to read the next book because what if the next people fall in love and forget each other again. My heart can't take it. The story said "...and they lived happily ever after" after the wedding but Kat didn't get to experience or remember any of it. So what about her husband Edward? Did he experience the happily ever after or did his wife's personality change instantly after they married and Kat was sucked back to reality. Or did he cease to exist once the one real person left? And if he did cease to exist, why would she knowingly kill him off by marrying him? ugh!!! I am so frustrated and confused.
Read up to the part that he asks her to marry him and then stop. You will be happier imaging your own ending. 😒

I love fiction based on fantasy, but this attempt didn't come close. It was a bit "herky-jerky" for a Cinderella story. Keep trying!
