    I love fairy tale re-tellings so this book definitely caught my eye! This story has elements of Cinderella in it, but it’s not a straightforward retelling. I loved the two main characters and their friendship and banter. I was intrigued by the idea of how masks were used in the society, although there were several times when facial gestures were referenced that seemed out of place if the person was wearing a full mask. There were also several things brought up at the very end of the book that raised unanswered questions, which makes me hope that there is a second book planned!
