Finding Cinderella: A Novella by Colleen Hoover

 Author of Hopeless, Colleen Hoover delivers another deeply emotional and compelling work!  Finding Cinderella might be a novella, but it will have you laughing and then crying.  It will make you sad and then you will find yourself happy in the end.

"I hate them," she says softly.
"Everybody," she says. "I hate everybody."
I close my eyes and lift my hand, then run it down her hair, doing my best to comfort her.  Finally, someone who actually gets it. I'm not sure why she hates everybody but I have a feeling she's got a pretty valid reason.
"I hate everybody too, Cinderella."

  This is not your ordinary Cinderella story.  Cinderella didn't make a connection with an unknown guy in a closet at her high school.  But that was a very defining moment in the life of two people: Six and Daniel.  The strange thing is that even though they had no idea who the other was at the time, they were deeply connected through their friends.  Six'x best friend, Sky, is dating Daniel's best friend, Holder.  After their hookup in the closet, Daniel cannot quit thinking about this mystery girl, while Six has no choice whether she can forget what happened between them.  When she comes back from Italy, she meets Daniel again.  But this time they actually meet and start dating.  Six has dramatically changed since Italy.  She no longer just sleeps with guys and wants something more from a relationship.  Daniel doesn't know what has gotten into him but he knows he is falling deeply for this girl who has secrets.  The trouble is that the secrets involve him, and they are never what he expected.  Now to just see if their relationship can stay standing with such a deep secret as this.
