Spotlight On: The Step-Spinsters by Madina Papadopoulos

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away

...(actually, in Medieval France, to be exact) there lived Cinderella's stepsisters, Fredegonde the tall and Javotte the small. They wake up the morning after the legendary ball to learn that

they each still have a chance to be the bride —all they have to do is make their feet fit into that tricky slipper. Alas, these two damsels under stress never quite seem to fit in anywhere.

But that doesn’t stop them from wishing and hoping as they set upon a quest for grooms and grandeur of their own.
