I really enjoy teen fantasy and this book was excellent. I have never read a Cinderella type story where the Fairy godmother was the main character. It was excellent and the story sucked me in from the beginning and Kept my attention all the way to the outstanding conclusion.
Narration was good and brought the story to life.
The main character is Olivia a Junior fairy godmother that has been tasked with matching Ella with the most popular guy in school. The problem is Ella has no interest in the popular Jock. She defies her orders and decides to do what she believes is best.
There are some unique twists and Ella really shocked me with several of her crazy choices but although everything seems out of control things wrap up nicely for Ella.
The book leaves you hanging a bit because Olivia’s story does not conclude. I’m looking forward to the next book in this great teen series.

First of all, I love that this book was more than just a story about Cinderella. The female characters are strong, have their own stories, and pull you into their world. This story is set in Portland and I enjoyed getting to see glimpses of the place throughout the story. The humor is fantastic and sometimes dry which made me laugh out loud a few times because it was unexpected. If you enjoy YA, strong female leads, and a retelling of cinderella this book is for you.
What made the experience of listening to Glimmers of Glass the most enjoyable?
This audio book is so magical. It is both well written and exceptionally well performed. I absolutely felt like I was actually in the story with the characters. The only negative is that I need the next book in audio form right now <3
Who was your favorite character and why?
The fairy queen, because she is both powerful and humble.
What about Gillian Rose’s performance did you like?
The performance allowed me to easily sink into the story with no effort at all.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
belief is power.
