Book Review & FREE e-book: The Ugly Stepsister Strikes Back by Sariah Wilson

Matilda (aka Mattie or Tilly) is a tall, awkward, fuchsia-haired, manga-drawing girl with the perfect stepsister--Ella. I guess I'd always thought of Cinderella's stepsisters as being lazy, ugly, with big noses, big feet, and grating, irritating voices. In this modern re-telling, Mattie does not come off across as that way at all. In fact, I think she is just a very insecure girl. Her mother all but abandoned her when she was young and has very limited contact with her and her dad is a busy, distracted artist. I loved the relationship that these two girls shared with one another.

Jake. It's interesting to think that everyone has their idea of a perfect guy. He's perfect for one, but not for the other. He was great!! And patient.

Loved this story!!
