Ash by Malinda Lo

Book #2 - Ash by Malinda Lo.
Another of the Dinky Diva's rejects, that she said she "Couldn't get on with."

A Cinderella story with malevolent fairy folk thrown in, I was going to recommend that she give it another try as it's the type of story she would like. Then about two thirds of the way in Cinders (Ash) decided that it wouldn't be the handsome prince that she ran off with, in a slightly unexpected twist that would have possibly taken a lot of explaining to a 10 year old.

A good read for late teens/young adults, but beware the 'teen' novel if you have early teens or younger children with a good reading ability!!
