From the Back Cover:

Are you one of the unsavory sisters no prince wants to date?

The Desperate Sister: If a man's got a pulse, she's in love.
The Dramatic Sister: Everything's a production with this sister, especially her latest dating disaster.
The Jaded Sister: Carrying more baggage than a 747, this maiden complains that no decent lads exist because she's still bitter over the ex who didn't deserve her.
The Self-Important Sister: Her favorite topic? Herself! Just ask the intensely bored suitor sitting across the table from her.
The Saucy Sister: Her flashy get-ups and tawdry conversation all ooze sex, yet she wonders why that's all she gets from men.
The Martyr Sister: Oh, how she's suffered at the hands of suitors who have taken advantage of her kind, tender heart!
The Low Self-Esteem Sister: She searches for hidden meaning in innocent comments and is seized with anxiety every time her man hangs out with the guys.
The Superficial Sister: She'd dump her dream man if he went bald.
The Controlling Sister: It's her way or the highway. Next stop: Nag City.
The Too-Loving Sister: She'd do anything for her man--even be his doormat.
The Gold-Digger Sister: She loves the finer things, as long as they're on his tab.
The High-Maintenance Sister: Her best trait? Being able to cry on cue to get what she wants.

With Cinderella Was a Liar, you can rewrite your romantic reality and create your own happily ever after!

Close the book on the fairy-tale fib with this wise and witty guide to modern love

If you have ever stayed up wondering where your prince is, you're not alone. Cinderella promised every maiden in the land that she would find a prince, marry him in a gala event, and move straight into her happily every after. Unfortunately, Cinderella was a liar.

The reality is that no man is perfect and neither are you (sorry!). But that doesn't mean that all men are toads or that you are destined to be ordering dessert for one for the rest of your life. The truth is you can have a great relationship with a fantastic guy but to do that you're going to have to look in the mirror and change a few things, because the only way to find the best match is to become your best self!

It's time to identify your dating shortcomings, polish up your outlook, learn the joys of walking barefoot, and rejoice in the fact that you have far more control over your romantic reality than you ever realized! So, don't waste another minute waiting for a prince to swoop in out of nowhere to save you from a lifetime of loneliness. Learn how to save yourself, live your best life, and enjoy the dating dance and you'll find a slipper that fits perfectly--no wishing required!

With Cinderella Was a Liar, you can learn to:

  • Realize that your life has significance regardless of your romantic status!
  • Accept that not every slipper carried by a suitor will fit--and that's perfectly OK.
  • Stop limiting yourself! The idea that you have just one "soul mate" or can date only men who look or act a certain way is silly--and boring.
  • Stop telling yourself the lies that keep you from finding your prince.
  • Understand why One-Night Stands and Drunk-Dialing are very bad potions.
  • Spot a toad who doesn't deserve you and cut him loose.
  • Chill out and enjoy dating, while scoping out the right places to meet your mate.

Cinderella Was a Liar will help you banish that silly fairy-tale ideal for good with frank, honest advice and a healthy dose of reality. (Hint: It's not always the guy's fault when a relationship shrivels, despite what many dating books will tell you!) It's time to hold yourself accountable for creating your own happy ending and finding a slipper that fits comfortably.
