Cinders & Sapphires by Leila Rasheed - OPTIONAL

Rasheed, Leila Cinders & Sapphires, 400 p. Disney, 2013.  $18.  Language: G (1 swear, 0 ‘f’); Mature Content: PG; Violence: G.

  Ada, a prim and proper English girl, is impossibly in love with a young man from India.  Add in a meddling stepmother, a conniving stepsister and a maid with sinister designs.  

Everyone has a plot, a scheme, a secret, a liaison.  It is quite overhelming at times.  Treat this like a PG version of an adult romance novel.  There is one homosexual theme, but it is extremely PG – all innuendo, no detail.  If a student isn’t reading carefully, they might not even pick up on it.  

HS – OPTIONAL.   Cindy, Library Teacher.
