Meant to Be: If the Shoe Fits

Meant to be


Author: Julie Murphy


From #1 New York Times best-selling author Julie Murphy comes the first in a brand-new young adult series inspired by the classic fairy tale stories we all know and love.

Cindy loves shoes. A well-placed bow or chic stacked heel is her favorite form of self-experssion. As a fashion-obsessed plus-sized woman, she can never find designer clothes that work on her body, but a special pair of shoes will always fit just right.

Having just graduated with a degree in shoe design, and trying to get her feet on the ground, Cindy is working for her stepmother, who happens to be the executive producer of America’s favorite reality show, Before Midnight. When a spot on the show needs filling ASAP, Cindy volunteers, hoping it might help jump-start her fashion career, or at least give her something to do while her peers land jobs in the world of high fashion.

Turns out being the only plus size woman on a reality dating competition makes a splash, and soon Cindy becomes a body positivity icon for women everywhere. What she doesn't expect? That she may just find inspiration—and love—in the process. Ultimately, Cindy learns that if the shoe doesn't fit, maybe it's time to design your own.
