When Lucinda Chapdelaine was a small child, her parents left for the royal ball and never returned. Ever since, Lucinda has been stuck in perpetual servitude at her evil aunt’s jewelry store. Then, on the very same day, a mysterious visitor and an even more bizarre piece of jewelry both enter the shop, setting in motion a string of twists and turns that will forever alter Lucinda’s path. In this magical story filled with delightful surprises, Lucinda will dance at the royal ball, fall under the Amaranth Witch’s spell, avenge her parents’ death, and maybe—just maybe—capture the heart of a prince.

I really loved this little book. It has all the fun fairy tale feel, but has a unique plot line, and world. So if you like retold fairy-tales and fantasy this one is good to read.
I really enjoyed this "fairy tale." I've read sevearl YA retold fairy tales and this one is delightful. I liked the unique story, but hated how quickly it ended. It made me wish it had several more chapters.
