The Ugly Stepsister Strikes Back

The Ugly Stepsister Strikes Back by Sariah Wilson

How many times can one dad remarry?  How about when he takes in your stepsister to live with you, even though he isn’t her dad?  Why is it that the stepsister is always the pretty, full of energy, donates her time to charities, has the football captain boyfriend, everyone loves her type.  What about you, the one no one notices, except to laugh at, the average teen.

Ella is the pretty stepsister, Mattie is the average teenage girl in high school, who has always had a crush on Jake.  Who is Jake?  That would be Ella’s football captain boyfriend!  But a turn of events has Ella and Mattie becoming closer and discovering things about each other and themselves, and those around them.

Comical, witty, typical teenage high school days make this a quick, fun light read.  If Cinderella can transform from the ugly stepsister to the princess, can Mattie?
