I've spent most of my time writing mysteries, so when I decided, under the pen name K. Sean Jennkrist, to write a story specifically for teens, I was unsure how it would turn out. Being a high school teacher, I've observed and known lots of kids who you might call geeks and many who at times wanted to change that role, venture into the world of the popular crowd. However, most never do, never know how to go about it, if it were even possible. Cinderella Geek is my version of a modern-day fairytale of someone who does exactly that, becomes popular, a true Cinderella.
And it doesn't stop there. I plan to create more modern fairy tales. Hopefully, in a few months, I will have Not So Snow White to join Cinderella Geek in the crusade to bring up the underdog!
Mystery novels -- Whips, Cuffs, and Little Brown Boxes in ebook; PB available soon
I wish I had a book like this when I was a teen, I probably would have gotten into reading a LOT sooner if I did!
I loved the personalities of all of the characters and the mystery behind all of them throughout the book. Jennkrist knows the perfect way to end a chapter! After each one I found myself excited to continue reading to find out what was going to happen next. I hope she writes another one! This modern twist on a fairytale was AWESOME!

I really loved reading this book. I loved the characters..Winter and her friends and the bully at school.. i thought duane was great and very comical. The mystery was well written and kept me interested. Once i started reading i wanting to know what was going to happen next and I couldn't put the story down..I was sorry to see the story end.

I purchased Not So Snow White because it sounded like it had an interesting twist on Snow White tale. Sadly, it was just okay. Typically I read a book straight through in one sitting, with this one I read it over a few nights and by the end I was nearly skimming the pages, which consisted of White being TOLD EVERYTHING all at once. I felt like there were so many questions that were brought up along the way with no answers until the last few pages when we get an info dump after a few paragraphs of action.
I liked the main character White, but I didn't entirely feel her. She just didn't seem to have any depth and her personality sort of flip flopped throughout the story. What really got me was that at the end when she believes that she has forever lost the primary love interest she had the entire book, she is suddenly dating someone else. Almost as if the author realized that the teens picking up her book would want a happy ending. Uh, what was the point in even having a romantic element if it's going to be dropped like a hot potato without any emotional reaction? Fine, kill off the character but at least SHOW us a reaction.
There's a whole subplot line going on with the school bully. It seemed to be a lot of filler, and although it gave White an outlet for her magic, I just felt like it never went anywhere. I'm not sure if the point was to teach victims to fight back by getting even (which is what White does) or to teach them that a bully never stops (Since the bully doesn't stop). White's guardian elf seemed to be trying to teach White a lesson on not using her powers for revenge, but when you think she's learned her lesson, she does it again.
