About the Author

Jaclyn is an Idaho farm girl who grew up loving to read. She developed a love for writing as a senior in high school, when her dad jokingly said she was the next Dr. Seuss (not even close, but very sweet). She met her husband, Steve, at BYU, and they have six happy, crazy children who encourage her to keep writing. After owning a bookstore and running away to have adventures in Australia, they settled back down in their home in Utah. Jaclyn now spends her days herding her kids to various activities and trying to remember what she was supposed to do next. She has published six books in a year, and her mind is still reeling from the awesomeness. Her books include The Princess and the Prom Queen; Magicians of the Deep; the Luck series—Stolen Luck, Twist of Luck, Best of Luck, and Just My Luck, a novella. You can learn more about Jaclyn at her website: www.jaclynweist.com

This was a fun take on the Cinderella story. I loved how she had magic and could take care of the problem on her own. The "fairy godmother" was still fun to be included and I liked how Weist took liberties with the story, making things her own, but still keeping the original outline. I really enjoy how in all of Weist's stories I've read, the parents are involved in the lives of the characters. They can't solve the problems, but they are caring adults who engage in the lives of the character. Only complaint I have for this story, that kept me from doing 5 stars, was I felt like there was something missing. I wanted a little more development of certain parts of the story and to get more of some information for Sydney to understand what her dad was doing and why he was behaving the way he did at times. I know "magic" was involved, but I felt like Sydney should have questioned things just a little more. She accepted things for the way they were at the beginning a little too easily. Other than that, a very fun story.

This book was an excellent twist to Cinderella stories currently out there. Well written and fun to read and follow, you get pulled into the character quickly. The love stories is not extremely felt or deep but that is okay and definitely something I would let my young daughters read. The added magic makes this story very interesting. If you are looking for a good adventure that will keep you wondering what will happen, is clean and fun to read, this is the book for you.

This is an adorable Cinderella version. The story is quick, with simple language. Plot is pretty basic, and the overall story had a cute little underlying romantical crush. There were a few things that were kind of ridiculous, like how the father was so oblivious to how his step wife was treating his daughter, but for children 8-14, this would be an amusing tale. Definitely one that could be read aloud together as a family. Oh, I forget to mention, this Cinderella has magic. Very nice twist. She even goes to a magic camp. Have all your daughters read this one.

I love that this book was based on a recurring dream the author had. This unique take on Cinderella includes a little bit of magic and a curse that forces the main character, Sydney, to walk up and down a flight of stairs every night.

Just like Sydney looks forward to heading off to magic camp for a week long break, I think we all dream of creating the perfect room, finding friends, and escaping from our lives for a bit. The romance is well placed and works to forward the plot not detract from it.

Loved the unique ending. Can't wait to read more from Weist.

I think this was a really great idea for a story, but I think it could've been stand-alone rather than called a modern Cinderella. The idea was so unique that I felt like giving the "Cinderella" expectation took away from the amazing-ness of having a great story idea, even if some aspects were like Cinderella.
But overall I really like the story and the idea and it was fun

The plot is a little convoluted at times and the world-building (especially the magical elements) under formed but overall a pleasant read for the price. Would be a good pick for teens who enjoy fairy tales. Has the right touch of romance.

This is my mousiey's opinion of her very delightful and different read. I truly enjoyed reading her book so very much. She has such a way with her characters that you are able to connect with them . Even though the characters in the story are teenagers you can place yourself in their shoes going through there experiences. The scenes are laid out in such depth and detail that you can actually visualize seeing a castle as a bedroom , little mermaids swimming in the lake, etc. This is a fun read sorta like Cinderella except it deals with magic - learning to use magic. And how to stop a horrible nightmare that a young teenager is having over and over again every night in her sleep. Poor Sydney all she wants is a good nights sleep and to get rid of that dream. Her father is a hunt to find a cure for it. He leaves her at home with her wicked step mother and step sisters. Yes you read right!! All she does is clean , clean and more cleaning. Her step mother doesn't even bother to buy her any clothes. After dinner one night before Sydney leaves for summer camp- her dad takes her shopping. ow Sydney actually thinks she is going to a regular summer camp-but on the way there to be dropped off . Her dad tells her that it is in fact a camp to learn to use her magic. And he had a say so where she was going to go for camp. Boy does she feel better. . At the top of the stairs she finds a women that she has to give something to make her happy. But what?? She doesn't know ..
This book is recommended for everyone. As for the rating I give it a 20 out of 5 stars. It is a fast read. It is available on AMAZON !! GET YOUR COPY TODAY!!!

Sydney dreams of stairs. Her nights are filled with an endless spiral staircase that she can't escape. Exhausted from running them every single night, there seems to be no escape. Add to that her obnoxious stepsisters and monstrous stepmother, Sydney's life is less than peachy. But things are about to change when Sydney's father signs her up for a magic summer camp to help her learn about her powers.

Endless is a new and interesting twist to the Cinderella story, both in the retelling of it and how Weist decided to use the modern day twist. This is distinguished from most modern retellings because she has kept the magic in play, as opposed to the more popular strictly contemporary versions. The magic added a great pizzazz and good depth for this almost-familiar world. It lent to a more complicated story, with a secret magic society that added a great aura of mystery.

My favorite part of this tale is the personal development from Sydney. In the beginning she puts up with the stepmonsters with little complaint. She is complacent of her position because 'that's just the way it is', but she's also insecure and self-deprecating. It's fun to watch her rebellious streak as she starts to take control of her own life.

As a YA romance, nothing about this book made me happier than the lack of a messy love triangle. And the peasants rejoiced! The closest it gets is the threat of a love triangle, but it's totally in the range of acceptability. Plus, Sydney and her love interest Luke are completely adorable together.
