THE UGLY STEPSISTER STRIKES BACK may be purchase here.
THE UGLY STEPSISTER STRIKES BACK
Mattie Lowe has a beautiful, "perfect", stepsister named Ella. Ella is not only pretty, a cheerleader, a charity worker, and good-hearted, but she has as a boyfriend, Jake Livingston, who Mattie has been in love with,since she was nine years old. Jake and Ella are part of the "in" crowd, while Mattie is an outsider with attitude.
THE UGLY STEPSISTER STRIKES BACK is a delightful young adult romance with interesting, complex characters. Mattie has issues to work through dealing with her mother's desertion. Told in first person, from Mattie's point of view, the reader sees the world through Mattie-colored glasses and learns, by the end of the story, Mattie isn't the only one with insecurities and problems. Jake is the golden boy, who feels pressured by his father to excel at everything. When Mattie and Jake are thrown together the sparks fly.
All in all, THE UGLY STEPSISTER STRIKES BACK is a really great read, which I highly recommend. In fact, I plan to gift a copy to my niece. Also, I really wish, that this book would be made into a movie.
NOTE: I received this book in return for a unbiased review
