Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The Cinderella Rule is an excellent resource for both teenaged girls and the parents, relatives, teachers, mentors and friends who want them to seek a “prince” who will woo and pursue them. Bethany Jett’s writing style is practical, full of wisdom and engaging. I plan on buying this book for my 19-year-old daughter . . . and for her boyfriend, too.
- Arron Chambers, Pastor and Author of Remember Who You Are and Eats with Sinners

In a world where young women are inundated with messages telling them to chase after the bad boy, beast or vampire, it is refreshing to hear one telling them that they are worthy of a godly prince. As a father of a teenaged girl, I appreciate Bethany’s insights and advice. Both are timely and inspiring for young Cinderellas navigating the sometimes confusing world of love and dating. I laughed, I cried, I got a pedicure.
- Terry Davis, Family Minister at Journey Christian Church, Greeley, Colorado

Any girl who quotes a minion from Despicable Me (whaaa?) had me at hello. Bethany’s charm, mixed with pop culture and a large amount of the Bible, will help the single woman who wishes to become a godly (datable) woman. The Cinderella Rule is a helpful guide for all the single ladies.
- Renee Fisher, Spirited Speaker and Author of Faithbook of Jesus, Not Another Dating Book and Forgiving Others, Forgiving Me (www.devotionaldiva.com)

The Cinderella Rule is a beautiful and compelling look at what it means to be a daughter of the King and bride of Christ. Bethany Jett does a marvelous job of pointing young women to their true beauty and value within and guides them on a journey filled with hope and promise.
- Nicole O’Dell, Founder of Choose NOW Ministries, Author of The Diamond Estates Series

Reading The Cinderella Rule is like chatting with your older, cooler cousin—you know, the one who you always wanted to paint your nails and do your hair for you. Although Bethany does discuss highlights and French “manis,” she also talks about something much more important and enduring—your future husband. The Cinderella Rule explains that Mr. Right is someone who recognizes and seeks your inner beauty and helps you shine brighter. Bethany gives a straightforward, modern, conversational how-to for loving yourself in order to find Prince Charming and live happily ever after.
- Laura L. Smith, Author of Skinny, Hot, Angry and the Status Updates Series

I am one who avoids reading at all costs. I could not put this down. There are so many wonderful thoughts, ideas, stories, and life lessons in this book. The best part about all of it is that Bethany Jett talks to you like the person you are. She doesn't write in a way that you may or may not understand, and she doesn't treat you like a child. Bethany treats you like a friend, more so like a best friend. As you read, it is as though you are in a conversation with a dear old friend that you don't want to speak during in fear that it will bring the conversation to an end. I was saddened when it ended, but so pleased with what I read. I will definitely be buying a physical copy of this for my bookshelf that I can keep going back to as well as one to share. Seriously, it's worth the time, money, and investment. Just read the first chapter and you will be hooked. I know I was.

Debut author Bethany Jett has done an incredible job of creating a guide for girls whose hearts are telling them to slow down and wait on the right guy to pursue them. They know there's beauty in hanging back and focusing on the interesting things in their own lives-- the result is that they become interesting to guys with substance. I think we've reached the point of utter fatigue with the models popular culture holds up for girls these days--most of them idealize the aggressive pursuer. What we find more often than not, is that girls who target a particular boy and use every means to attract his attention are suffering from a lack of confidence and a fuzzy road map. What The Cinderella Rule does best is that it encourages girls to see the big picture, and it especially encourages them to clearly see the end result they want. They don't really want a string of quick heartbreaks. They really want their hearts, souls, and minds to be engaged by guys who see that they are unlike any other woman on earth. They are special and they are worthy of pursuit. Jett, in a beautifully transparent voice, shares her own times of feeling desperate for a boy's approval and attention. She's frank about where this desperation usually leads and she loves girls enough to tell them the truth. Be smart. Be creative. Be yourself. And be worthy of an honorable young man's focus. And she's clear, too, about what an honorable man looks like--he's of high character, he never cheats, he never reacts violently, he never takes you for granted. And, above all, he's 'right' for you. We don't need more "rules" on dating. We sure don't need more lessons on the "games" that we can play to land a man. We need honesty. Refreshing, real, clear-eyed honestly. The Cinderella Rule accomplishes this neatly, plus reading it feels a lot like sitting with the author in your favorite coffee shop. This is a comfortable read that allows you to absorb solid truth free from judgment and criticism.

This is an incredible book that was written by someone who is obviously passionate about what she's writing. Bethany draws you in with her frankness but does so in a caring and kind way. It's like a big sister or best friend talking to you about your love life. Biblical, funny, true, and real. I recommend you take the time to read this. And then pass it on to your girl friends.

Bethany Jett has taken dating from a Christian perspective to a different level. She shares her personal journey along with advice on how to choose the right mate. Even though I've been married for years, this book has changed the way I will parent my children through dating. Thank you Bethany for this message! **This would be a perfect graduation gift for a girl!
