A Dress To Remember: A Fairy Tale by K.L. Small
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Very fun! I really enjoyed Zarina’s story and adventures. Not only was I entranced with the difficulty Zarina goes through to get a dress for her gala, and all the trouble she gets into and causes, but there is a great lesson to be learned in thinking of others above yourself, and not having “the world revolves around me” mentality. Zarina was irritating me in the beginning, she seemed to think she should get whatever she wanted, whenever she wanted and the schemes to make sure she isn’t slighted in any way are terrible. She soon learns that everything is not all about her and she might be more important to her kingdom than “just a pretty face”. I really loved watching her realize how much she liked helping all the families and people she helped on her way back to the castle and how nice she was. My heart broke for her family, and how the people of her kingdom perceived her family, but she grew into a wonderful young lady. The magic of the dress is such a clever and fun twist, helping her along her way.
