Rove City is a city of ships that floats through space and El is stuck being a slave to her step-family. She can't leave because her social ranking scores were sabotaged by her step-sisters and their friends, all the money she earns working at the mechanic shop goes to her step-mother, and she is stuck. She wants to escape, but really she has no way to.
It was a unique retelling of Cinderella and I honestly cannot wait for the next installment of the series.
I received a free copy of this book for my honest review...AND I bought a copy after I finished reading it. 100% worth it.
One night after sneaking out of the house for a little alone time she runs into a young man in a greenhouse and they strike up a friendship. Like her he’s hiding a secret.
El has an opportunity to work outside the house for a mechanic shop (when she’s not slaving away for the family) that works on fighter planes. Here she dreams that she might one day change the circumstances of her life.
It’s a heartbreaking story with some modern touches and a few friends for El along the way, this is a YA story where they only share a kiss. What got old after a while was the constant repetition of punishments after a bit it’s like alright we got it she’s breathing therefore she’s going to be punished. Plus El’s defeatist attitude where she constantly rolled over made me disconnect after a bit. I understand the premise of Cinderella and the crappy way she was treated is what tugs at your heartstrings a few examples of it and then move onto something else.
I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
But the Cinderella part of this story is told with a competition (instead of a ball)– to find more pilots for the fleet, and . El is quite good at the simulators, helping get her step-sisters better scores. Playing was always an escape from her slave-like life. She’s been ordered by her stepmother to not go, but her friends step in and help her attend. I won’t tell more of the plot, it’s an easy read and well-paced. Fun story.

The retelling is clever and true accept she has a few more friends.
A shortish story an ideal break.
