She desperately wanted to go to the ball, but her step-sisters said "no" - which is not fair at all! Luckily, her Fairy Godmother shows up, and fixes ALL of her problems with magic and make-up. Though this fairytale is not how it looks, the narrative differs from other books." Right: "The Clock Struck Twelve. Gabriella Wilde."

The Clock Struck Twelve
