Wicked stepmother? Check. Evil stepsisters? Check. Miserable life?Check.
Lucy Norton’s life has all the makings of a Cinderella story. Her dad’s always away on business, leaving Lucy with her cruel stepmother and bratty stepsisters. She’s burdened with chores, and has a hard time fitting in at her new school. So when she sees Connor Pearson, the star player on the varsity basketball team, Lucy hopes her destiny has finally changed. With everything else going on in her life, doesn’t she at least deserve to get the handsome prince?
Melissa Kantor’s enchanting novel proves that sometimes the happy ending isn’t quite the one you’d expect. Lucy’s about to discover the truth about finding her real Prince Charming… and finding herself.
Well i request this from netgalley and i got it for review. It's a retelling of Cinderella, I'm pretty sure you guys all know the fairy tale story :) I love love re tellings. And this one is one of them. It got published a few years ago soo yeah. I was definitely hooked to this book. I couldn't even put this book down. It took me two days to read it since I was reading other books too. I can totally feel like characters madness. This book makes me mad in a good way. I totally HATE the stepmother.
So it's about a girl name Lucy. Her mother died when she was really young and after a couple of years. Her father re marries and they have to move into the stepmother's house. She lives in the basement, the freak?! Anyways, she's not popular at school.
Everyone.. I mean everyone likes this guy, Conner Pearson. He's the hottest guy in high school and he's single. Suddenly one day Lucy talks about Basketball and Conner overhear her talking. Then he join the conversion and they both starts liking each other. After that day, Conner and Lucy started dating. Then everyone starts noticing her and wanting to be friends. Lucy believes that Conner is her prince.
Her stepmother is soooo annoying UGH. She's like 'I want this...Oooo I want this too' It makes me mad! It's weird since i never felt mad about a book before. And her dad believes everything her stepmother says. She twist everything Lucy said. Her dad is sooooooooooo freaking blind -_____- I hate how she has to hold in her anger every time she gets 'in trouble' by her stepmother. But I do like how they treat her at the end.
Lucy loves drawing. So does her mother. She's in art class and she's the second best in the class. The best is Sam Wolff, he's the type of guy who doesn't talk at all, but that's at first. Lucy thought he was mad and stuff but after what he did to her, which i'm not going to tell you because i don't want to spoil it :) Sam and Lucy has a friend relationship......kinda.
I think you should totally read this book! :)
