It was a very sad book. With the tragic event of her mother dying a few days after her birth, Adeline's start to life was already destined to be doomed. With only her Aunt Baba giving attention to her, Adeline is already a very depressed child. Later on , Her Nai Nai dies and this was someone close to Adeline. With already, tow tragic happenings in the short time of Yen Mah's life, you couldn't think of anything worse. Seeing as her mother had dies, she has a cruel and wicked, step mother. It just so happens that in The real Cinderella the 'step sisters' are rude and here the 'stem mum' is rude. Many things happen but the ending was most satisfying. A great but sad book. Excellent Masterpiece.
