The Ugly Stepsister Strikes Back

The Ugly Stepsister Strikes Back - Sariah Wilson

Everyone knows how all those fairy tales go. The princess gets beautiful, nabs her prince, falls instantly in love, lives happily ever after and leaves her evil stepsisters in the dust. 

But what happens when you're the ugly stepsister and your obnoxiously perfect--read pretty, smart, and, worst of all, sickeningly nice--stepsister is dating the charming, tall, devastatingly handsome guy you've had a thing for since you were nine years old? 

Quirky, artistic and snarky Mattie Lowe does not lead a charmed life. Her mother is constantly belittling her on Skype. Mercedes, the school mean girl, has made it her personal mission to torment Mattie. But worst of all? Her stepsister Ella is the most beautiful, popular girl in school and is dating Mattie's secret longtime crush, Jake Kingston. 

Tired of being left out and done with waiting for her own stupid fairy godmother to show up, Mattie decides to change her life. She'll start by running for senior class president against wildly popular Jake.

Ella can keep her Prince Annoying. Mattie's going to rule the school. 

And no one, not even a cute and suddenly flirty Jake, is going to stop her.


I bought this after reading a review on here. It could have been worse. It could have been better...but it could have been worse. I think the thing that messed my enjoyment was the fact that I kept picturing that Cinderella type movie that Hillary Duff played in eons ago. You know, back when she was still relevant...if she ever was.


The funny thing is, aside from being very very loosely based on Cinderella...this book did not resemble that stupid movie. It was actually somewhat smart...and sort of funny but yeah...damn that Hillary Duff. 


I should probably try to charge her rent for taking up my headspace. Does a cool million sound like a good deal?
