Everyone knows the story of Cinderella. It is something that many of us have watched and/or read growing up, and her life has held many of us captivated. She is the character to whom many girls look up, the princess who attracts a lot of attraction and attention. The only problem that people have is her submissiveness. As everything seems to be falling apart in her world, she just takes it all with a smile and does not bother to stand up for herself. This is how Cinders differs from her more traditional counterpart. Cinders actually has the chance and the desire to stand up, and you can help make that possible. You are going to be directing her life and letting her show her step-sisters and step-mother that she is not their toy or servant, even if she is still doing all of the chores.

Cinders’ life is how you would imagine. She still lives with her step-mother and step-sisters, she is still doing all of the chores, and she is still going to have to put up with their horrible behavior. This does not mean that there are not differences, of course. This story adds some spunk and attitude to Cinders, giving her the chance and desire to speak up in her defense. It also adds more to the step-sisters. Not only are they more attractive, but there is also more background so that you can sympathize with them more than you could before. The story as a whole also offers a darker, more mature tone that is sure to take you on a unique journey through this story.
