Publisher's summary

Bloomsbury presents Cinderella Is Dead by Kalynn Bayron, read by Bahni Turpin.

Girls team up to overthrow the kingdom in this unique and powerful retelling of Cinderella from a stunning new voice that’s perfect for fans of A Curse So Dark and Lonely.

It’s 200 years after Cinderella found her prince, but the fairy tale is over. Teen girls are now required to appear at the Annual Ball, where the men of the kingdom select wives based on a girl’s display of finery. If a suitable match is not found, the girls not chosen are never heard from again.

Sixteen-year-old Sophia would much rather marry Erin, her childhood best friend, than parade in front of suitors. At the ball, Sophia makes the desperate decision to flee and finds herself hiding in Cinderella’s mausoleum. There, she meets Constance, the last known descendant of Cinderella and her step sisters. Together they vow to bring down the king once and for all - and in the process, they learn that there’s more to Cinderella’s story than they ever knew....

This fresh take on a classic story will make listeners question the tales they’ve been told and root for girls to break down the constructs of the world around them.
