Mattie and Ella are complete opposites. Ella is perfect while Mattie is, well, not. But things change when Mattie has to do a school project with her crush, Jake. The only problem is that Jake is Ella's boyfriend.

This book was awesome. Surprisingly, the best parts were Ella and Mattie's interactions. Ella is perfect. Perfect looks, perfect behavior, and the perfect boyfriend. Mattie is plain, a rebel artist, and is best friends with a goth. They are complete opposites but their love for one another is unmistakable. Even when Mattie doesn't believe it, Ella still loves her and tries to help her.

I enjoyed the backstory between Mattie and her mom. We really get to see where all of Mattie's confidence problems come from - her shockingly evil mother. Every time she spoke to Mattie, I wanted to jump up and slap her. She was nefarious and mean spirited. 

Mothers, be good to your daughters. They will love others like you love them.

And now, Mattie and Jake. *sigh*. Jake started off like a jerk but he ended dreamy and delicious! Like cotton candy and a strawberry milkshake.

I love the references to eighties movies like Sixteen Candles and Pretty in Pink. As an eighties baby myself, it gave me serious nostalgia.

The Evil Step Sister Strikes Back is five-star magic. Pick up a copy today, if you dare.

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.


"The Ugly Stepsister Strikes Back" is a sweet, clean, contemporary young adult romance.
