The Ugly Stepsister Strikes Back by Sariah Wilson
🎩🎩🎩🎩 hats from Red!
This is a sugary sweet read, great for any adult or teen! Mattie has a problem. More than one. The love of her life is dating her perfect stepsister, she’s pretty much invisible at school, and she now has to join a school club. After a rather eye opening talk with her crush in detention she decides to run against him for the school presidents position. After many, many ups and downs Mattie finally sees a bit of the real Jake. She’s still in love.
Mattie was a pretty awesome character and I’m glad she wasn’t the run of mill shy, timid, loner girl most portray nowadays. She’s got a backbone and she’s full of some pretty great wit. Jake is our All American high school crush. We have all had a Jake in our life. Super sweet, super handsome, super athletic, the list goes on. Yet Jake is really sweet deep down and has some pretty overbearing parents that lets us forgive some of his “bad days”. I usually don’t talk about secondary characters but I loved Ella. She’s the girl you want to hate. Perfect, beautiful, sweet, hard-working, smart. Ella was all that and more and she worked off Mattie perfectly. She was so easy to like and I hope she gets a book.
Overall I’m definitely going to get a copy for my own daughter to read! Maggie’s story was definitely one I’ll share. She grows a lot throughout the book and the ending was perfect!
Everyone knows how those fairy tales go. The princess gets beautiful, nabs her prince and leaves her evil stepsisters in the dust.
But what happens when you’re the ugly stepsister and your obnoxiously perfect—pretty, smart, and, worst of all, nice—stepsister is dating the charming, devastatingly handsome guy you’ve had a thing for since you were nine?
Quirky, artistic and snarky Mattie Lowe does not lead a charmed life. Her mother is constantly belittling her online. The school mean girl has made it her mission to torment Mattie. But worst of all? Her stepsister is the most popular girl in school and is dating Mattie’s secret crush, Jake Kingston.
Tired of being left out and done with waiting for her own fairy godmother to show up, Mattie decides to change her life. She’ll start by running for senior class president against 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.
