Review | The Ugly Stepsister

The Ugly Stepsister

amazon barnes & noble Goodreads
When Kat accidentally rips apart an old picture book, she’s magically transported into the world of Cinderella–as Katriona, one of the ugly stepsisters! Life turns upside down now that she’s a highborn lady and must learn how to survive the social season, including how to get through the door in a huge metal hoop skirt. To get back, she’ll have to complete the story, right to the end of happily ever after. But the odds are huge: the other stepsister is drop-dead gorgeous, the fairy godmother is nowhere to be found, and the prince, despite being insanely hot, openly dislikes balls. Can she ever return to the modern world?

Hott Review:

I enjoyed The Ugly Stepsister. It’s a cute fantasy about a teenager that travels into the Cinderella storybook to fix the story she ruins.
I really loved the plot and the characters. It’s a fun novel that’s got some depth. The Ugly Stepsister introduces some controversial topics and allows the characters to take a stand on both sides of the issue.
I really enjoyed this but it irked me that there was foul language in what could otherwise be a top YA fantasy.
