Sixteen-year-old Tatum Elsea is bracing for the worst summer of her life. After being falsely accused of a crime, she’s stuck under stepmother-imposed house arrest and her BFF’s gone ghost. Tatum fills her newfound free time with community service by day and working at her covert graphic design business at night (which includes trading emails with a cute cello-playing client). When Tatum discovers she’s not the only one in the house keeping secrets, she finds she has the chance to make amends with her family and friends. Equipped with a new perspective, and assisted by her feisty step-abuela-slash-fairy-godmother, Tatum is ready to start fresh and maybe even get her happy ending along the way.

A modern play on the Cinderella story arc, Christina June’s IT STARTED WITH GOODBYE shows us that sometimes going after what you want means breaking the rules.

  1. Having Cinderella as the princess whom I have most adored and loved since I was a child, I am ever so happy that a retelling of her story is just created! Thank you for making this novel Ms. Christina June! I would be very honored to have this precious new gem added to my biblio treasure chest. I most certainly hope on getting ahold of this novel for free because I have never won any book giveaway before even though a joined millions of them. Thank you!
