Review: If I Have a Wicked Stepmother, Where's My Prince?



If I Have a Wicked Stepmother, Where's My Prince? by Melissa Kantor

I was immediately drawn in by the title of this cute YA novel, which loosely follows the story of Cinderella and her evil stepmother.

Lucy deals with a stepmother, an often absent father, a new boyfriend, an intriquing boy, a new group of friends and her flair for art - all while trying to be the perfect stepdaughter.

This is a fun, fast read - very cute!

I must say this is one of the best books I have ever read. Mainly because I have a dad who is rarely home, a stepmother who i strongly dislike and two stepsisters who I also dislike. This book taught me to try and bond and reason with them, which is what I'm currently working on. Not only do I have the family matters like this book, but i also have some of the boy problems. If I could have wrote a book, it would have been verysimilar to this one. Thanks for the great book that i can connect to and enojy reading.

I really wanted to buy a book at the bookstore but I coulnt find one and I almost thought about reading this but I didnt know. So I took it and read the back and it was so good that I finished all 283 pages in 2 days!
