This book has a Cinderella, a Prince Charming, a wicked stepmother and two evil stepsisters.  However, the setting is not a castle, but an average high school. With only a few weeks before Prom, will Lucy's Prince be a charmer or a dud; and is he really the prince of her dreams?  (Jana Sasser, Belton High School Library)
