It Started With Goodbye

Finished It Started With Goodbye by Christina June. I received a copy for review.

Tatum is under house arrest after she was deemed the getaway driver in a shoplifting incident (her best friend’s boyfriend stole iPhones and gift cards; she had no idea). She and her stepmom have a…we’ll go with complicated relationship at best, and this is certainly not an ideal set of circumstances. 

This is essentially a modern retelling of Cinderella and it is fantastic. I liked Tatum a lot and watching her grow over the summer made me really happy. Yes, there are nods to the story but it is also its own story.

I flew through the book and loved every second. I knew it would end well (hello, it’s a fairy tale!) but it was even better than I’d hoped.
