I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Quinn is 17 years old and believes in ghosts. She actually goes ghost hunting, but hasn't had a really scary experience...yet.

This is a dark retelling of Cinderella.  There's a wicked stepmother and two evil stepsisters.  The scariness is subtle, escalating slowly.  It was really well done.  It's hard to have that level of scariness that isn't cheesy or gory, well done!

The characters were well written, but the story is too short to do them justice.  Also, just a small thing, but a different cover would make a huge difference.
