To read next: My Life as the Ugly Stepsister by Juli Alexander
One of the things I find attractive about this one is that the lead character is fourteen. I’ve noticed a bit of a drought for books with main characters around that age.
I’ve read some reviews that say My Life as the Ugly Stepsister is a ‘true’ Young Adult book, written with teens in mind. A lot of YA these days is adult fiction wrapped up in YA packaging, so I hope this will be a nice change!
When Ally’s mother moves to Seattle to try out a relationship with an internet boyfriend, the fourteen-year-old has to live with her dad, her wicked stepmonster, and her way too beautiful stepsister. Ally’s list of brutal teen truths is growing by the minute. Can change actually bring something good this time around, or is Ally doomed to live out her life as the ugly stepsister?
