The Cinderella Project series blends the magic of adolescence with the drama of real life. The concept is complex and innovative, but may not always work. Tell Me True gives an optimist, an eccentric and a reformed bad boy center stage. April was flaky, Hazel flighty and Finn a hard to read puzzle, but for all of the craziness, Ms. Blake never skimped on the charm. Tell Me True, will not solve wars or mend broken hearts but in a world of chaotic turmoil, April, Hazel and Finn served a more important purpose. To take a reader out of their head and bring on a smile. It did what it was meant to do.
