Fairy tales are naturally non-mathematical. That is a fact, and fifteen-year-old Lily Sparrow loves factual, mathematical logic. So when her mother confesses that Lily’s deceased father is (a) not dead, (b) coming to dinner, and (c) the ruler of a fairy tale kingdom accessible through the upstairs bathtub, Lily clings to her math to help her make sense of this new double life (1 life in the real world + 1 secret life in the fairy tale world = a double life).
Even though it’s not mathematical, Lily finds herself being pulled into a mystery involving an unhappy Cinderella, a greasy sycophant called Levi, and a slew of vanishing fairy tale characters. Racing against the clock, with a sound mathematical plan, can Lily save her fairy tale friends before they vanish forever?

My review: The Cinderella Theorem (The Lily Sparrow Chronicles Book 1) by Kristee Ravan
This is a entertaining fairy tale that is different. Math loving Lily finds out that her dead father she never knew is really alive and lives in a different world. You get there through the door in her bathtub.
It is fun with math and fairy tale stories. I like the characters. I liked the topics of how important happily ever after is. That things might make a person happy for a moment. The math is a little bit much for me, but I did not have to do any so it was okay.
Lily has to look at herself and her ideas of what normal is and that her mother had lied to her all her life. Lily is fifteen years old. She wants to take lots of math classes but is not allowed. She loves math textbooks and books on math.
I would read another Lily Sparrow Chronicles in the future.
I was given a free ebook The Cinderella Theorem so I could give it a honest review.
