Summary

Summary

After seventeen-year-old Ash's mother dies, Ash is left with her mother's boyfriend and his children. They bully her by posting embarrassing pictures and making her do their homework. Ash's only solace is the app she developed to help people being cyber-bullied.

Calling herself @Cinders, Ash chats online with a girl named @Charming. Discovering @Charming is Char, a singer who goes to Ash's school, Ash comes to admire Char's courage in self-identifying as a lesbian. Char helps Ash help others, instead of being bitter. Ash finally feels like someone sees that she is special and supports her.

A modern Cinderella, Cinders tells the story of overcoming adversity and bullying with kindness and compassion.


Author Notes

METTE BACH was born in Denmark and raised in Delta, BC, the suburban setting for Cinders and Charming . Her lifelong interest in fairy tales led her to imagine the Cinderella story as a realistic modern queer romance. She is the author of Lorimer's teen novels Femme , Killer Drop (named a Best Book for Kids and Teens by the Canadian Children's Book Centre), and the Real Love books Love is Love and You're You . Mette runs a meal program for homeless and at-risk youth and lives in Vancouver.
