Looks cute. Disney seems to be really going into their book publishing division nowadays. I guess those Villains books have been very successful?

Cover for the first entry "If the Shoe Fits". From the description it sounds horrible, to be honest. Like a bad rom-com meets The Bachelor. Hard pass.

Quote:
After having just graduated with a degree in shoe design, and trying to get her feet on the ground, Cindy is working for her stepmother, who happens to be the executive producer of America’s favorite reality show, Before Midnight. When a spot on the show needs filling ASAP, Cindy volunteers, hoping it might help jump-start her fashion career, or at least give her something to do while her peers land jobs in the world of high fashion. Turns out being the only plus size woman on a reality dating competition makes a splash, and soon Cindy becomes a body positivity icon for women everywhere. What she doesn't expect? That she may just find inspiration — and love — in the process. Ultimately, Cindy learns that if the shoe doesn't fit, maybe it's time to design your own.

It’s not for me, but there’s probably an audience for it and I find it less offensive than the other books which use the “real” characters in Disney sanctioned fan fiction. I also appreciate the body positivity. Could see this and the other books providing the basis for a Disney+ show if they prove successful.

Good to know that I'm not the only one who found these "official" fanfics off-putting.

The only thing I thought was odd was that her feet were huge. But I guess it's a play on the story detail that Cinderella's feet are supposed to be extraordinarily small. I think it must have a bit of a gender reversal, too, considering she's holding his shoe.

Sounds like the ”AU” category of fanfiction especially those which are set in morden day,
” archive of our own" is full of these sorts of stories.
