Review this Book

‘Cinderella’, I wish!


Life isn't all fairytales and glass slippers...

‘Cinderella’, I wish!
 is the powerful true story of Dominiquè DeVeraux’s life. Beginning with her early childhood as a young black child living with loving white foster parents, Dominiquè is content and adored. But when Nanny dies suddenly, Dominiquè is taken away from the loving home that she knew and thrust into a world of trouble.

Dumped in a new home with strangers, Dominiquè’s life turns to one of difficulty and misery. In her fight for happiness she faces more and more abusers, domestic violence, rape and murder. Ploughing on regardless, Dominiquè chooses love as her weapon and shield. In this story of courage, our protagonist rises above the challenges she faces to celebrate life and to love herself indubitably.

The author wrote a memoir that perfectly captured the triumphs and setbacks of her life. It was easy to empathize with the author due to the raw writing.

by Cristie

A very raw, real and emotive read. A great insight into this strong woman’s life that really has been a hell of a journey and strong is an understatement. Interesting and entertaining, whilst still being emotive.

by Tara

There were times when I did not know whether to keep reading or to put it down it was so tragic. But I had to know how it was going to end and I'm glad I finished the book. It was an excellent read and I would encourage anyone facing a tough time to read it and be inspired.

by Anjali

This is a memoir of the author's life. A well written account of the troubles she faced as a result of being moved around in and out of the foster care system. I would recommend this book.

by Chaquinta

I didn’t just love this book, I REALLY loved this book. Not only is Dominique an engaging storyteller but her book really put life into perspective for me not to sweat the small stuff. It’s a powerful read with moments of inescapable self-inclusion meaning it was impossible to put it down. I read this in 4 days and with every free millisecond I had.

by Shavonne

This book was a very emotional read for me . I found myself holding back tears several times while reading this book. It’s a sad and thought provoking read at its best. A book about her personal life in and out of foster care an amazing read.
