A Cinderella Story!! YA-Highway

Today I will be participating in the YA-Highway Road trip Wednesday!

THIS WEEKS TOPIC IS:
 In honor of this month's Bookmobile book, Marissa Meyer's CINDER, name a fable or story you'd like to see a retelling of. If you're feeling creative, come up with a premise of your own!

At the end you'll see the twist I put into the story!!



   Cinderella did not have a good life.  Her stepmother and her two stepsisters were terrible to her.  She was treated like a slave.  One day Cinderella heard of a ball coming up, she wanted to go so bad, but her stepmother, and her two stepsisters wouldn't allow it. 
 Cinderella's eyes brimmed with shiny tears.  Everyone left for the ball and she had to stay behind doing chores...Then all of a sudden a short, plump fairy Godmother appeared and magically gave Cinderella a beautiful shimmering white dress!  Cinderella went to the ball and everyone thought she was beautiful.  The handsome prince wanted to dance with her, she graciously accepted.  After the dance with the prince, Cinderella knew she had stayed at the ball for too long!  
She ran as fast as she could and her glass shoe fell off!  The prince had no idea where she had gone so he searched all over to find her, and marry her!  Finally when he got to Cinderella's house, he put the shoe on Cinderella...But the shoe didn't fit!  Her foot had grown!  He didn't believe that it was she, that he had danced with.  Cinderella was devastated!  
He searched the rest of his life for the women who could fit into the tiny shoe.  Soon the fairy Godmother realized what had happened.  The fairy Godmother felt very sorry for Cinderella so, she turned her adorable dog Bruno into a handsome young man, and the two ran away and lived Happily Ever After. :)

Hope you enjoyed reading!! :)

I'm Back!


 Things have been really hard for me lately, in my last post I was saying how I had just gone to Wisconsin for a week.  When we got back from Wisconsin, school was about to start so I had to start prepping and getting all of the school supplies that I needed, and then the next week we went to California for 10 days!  We had so much fun there though!  And then after California I had to catch up on all of the school that I had missed.  So that's the reason for me not posting for a while!  Sorry guys!  Just been so exhausted!!!

Anyway California was really awesome!  We visited Monterey, (So many sea otters + seals here, literally all over!!) Carmel, Yosemite, Palo Alto (we visited Standford!  My dad went to school there!) and San Fransisco!  Here are some pictures of our trip! All photos are taken by me!

We saw sea otters while kayaking!
