Everything listeners know about Cinderella's story is turned upside down in this imaginative retelling. Narrator Bahni Turpin beautifully portrays its Black protagonist, Sophia, who is determined to dismantle a patriarchy that demands that girls dress up and be herded like cattle for the purpose of being chosen by men for marriage or lost to a worse fate. Turpin artfully voices Sophia and even breathes life into the other characters, who are somewhat one-dimensional. The story and its theme are relevant but will ultimately leave listeners wanting more--more plot construction, more character development, more world-building. Turpin's performance, however, is superb and hits every mark perfectly. E.P. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2020]
