Waiting on Wednesday: Princess of Glass by Jessica Day George

Princess of Glass by Jessica Day George (Published by Bloomsbury USA Children's Books, May 25, 2010)

The engrossing companion novel to Princess of the Midnight Ball, with a wicked twist on Cinderella.
Hoping to escape the troubles in her kingdom, Princess Poppy reluctantly agrees to take part in a royal exchange program, whereby young princes and princesses travel to each other’s countries in the name of better political alliances—and potential marriages. It’s got the makings of a fairy tale—until a hapless servant named Eleanor is tricked by a vengeful fairy godmother into competing with Poppy for the eligible prince. Ballgowns, cinders, and enchanted glass slippers fly in this romantic and action-packed happily-ever-after quest from an author with a flair for embroidering tales in her own delightful way.

Fairy tale retellings is another one of my favorite genres. This book sounds like it will be a really cute and enjoyable addition to this genre, and I love the cover, it's so pretty.
