Everything Is Canon: Cinderella Is Dead

Everything is Canon

On this episode of “Everything is Canon”, Steve talks with Kalynn Bayron all about her new book “Cinderella is Dead”!

They discuss all sorts of things including flipping a classic fairy tale on its head, creating a connected fairy-tale universe, and writing a black story during these important times.

“Cinderella is Dead” is published by Bloomsbury Books.

Here’s the summary…

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 readers question the tales they’ve been told, and root for girls to break down the constructs of the world around them.
