Elizabeth Lim was inspired to become a writer by the myths and fairy tales her father used to tell her as a child. She is an author and a Juilliard-trained composer, and has written the scores to several award-winning films and video games. A Twisted Tale is an anthology series of books based around alternate “what-if” spins on familiar animated Disney films. In Elizabeth Lim’s So This is Love: A Twisted Tale (Disney-Hyperion) the question is: What if Cinderella never tried on the glass slipper? Unable to prove that she’s the missing princess, and unable to bear life under Lady Tremaine any longer, Cinderella attempts a fresh start, looking for work at the palace as a seamstress. But when the Grand Duke appoints her to serve under the king’s visiting sister, Cinderella becomes witness to a grand conspiracy to take the king-and the prince-out of power, as well as a longstanding prejudice against fairies, including Cinderella’s own Fairy Godmother. Faced with questions of love and loyalty to the kingdom, Cinderella must find a way to stop the villains of past and present before it’s too late.
