If I Have a Wicked Stepmother Where s My Prince by Melissa kantor 5 STARSWell if the purpose of this book is to make me feel for Lucy it was successful.
My emotions where all over the place even shed a bunch of tears.
Lucy s father got remarried and they moved from San Francisco to New York to live in her stepmother s house Then her father kept working in San Francisco on a big case for work and flew into New york for weekends.
Lucy s stepmother is busy shopping and cares about redecorating the whole house but not her room Lucy lives in the basement by herself Sleeps on a air mattress has no place to put her clothes, because she was not allowed to move with her furniture just being told we will buy.
six months later she finally gets a bed and then told her friend was comming for a week and will have her bedroom Lucy gets the couch.

Lucy is a young woman who s had to uproot her life in many considerations, so its easy to see why she s a bit bitter about things, and she has a strong, savvy voice to boot For one, while her father s sporadically on leave with work in San Francisco, she has to contend with her strict stepmother as well as her bratty, younger twin stepsisters To make matters complicated, she s not exactly at the top of her social ladder at school, being the new girl Her situation in itself seem Sigh How did this modern Cinderella story go so horribly, horribly wrong At least with the Cinderella Story movie series tiresome as that got there was an attempt to make the Cinderella characters likeable, or at least actually underdogs of some kind Literally the only problem this Cinderella has is that she HAS a stepmother The wicked thing is debatable, at best She does a couple of thoughtless things and she does treat her own daughters a little better, but I wouldn t say she was wicked, nor that this Cinderella bore up under unfair treatment with kindness or even patience She acted like a bratty teenager every time she didn t get her own way And she had FRIENDS At the beginning of the book, she claimed to have nobody, but she gained popularity without even trying so what was up with that I also have a pe I ll start with the things I liked I liked Lucy, for the most part I like the interactions she has at home with her family, and surprisingly they were entertaining than her interactions with her classmates The overall story moved along quickly although I did skim over some , but was fairly predictable.
I m trying to figure out what to say without giving away spoilers I thought it was awkward that Lucy didn t have ANY friends, and then the hottest guy in school likes her and all of the sudden she has a million friends She had been at school long enough you d think she would have made at least one friend I just thought that was kind of odd I didn t really care for the ending I think things were wrapped up too quickly and didn t really make a lot of sense Although I didn t think Connor was the best match for Lucy, he did seem genuinely interested so
Well This book was mediocre in every possible way The plot was pretty boring Like, there aren t really too many events Problems just sort of stew and then abruptly change at the end The only thing that wasn t too exasperating was encounters with her stepmother, but the rest of the book was a total blank I finished it a few days ago, and I m already having trouble coming up with things to say about it Because it was so boring Also, it was pretty unoriginal on the Cinderella front, like sometimes there would be a random line about cleaning or Prince Charming, but it wasn t really an involved metaphor that helped the story along, like in Meg Cabot s Avalon High with King Arthur The characters weren t deep or interesting.
ETA one year later Apparently this book is so boring that I have no memory of actually reading it If you had as Ok two stars why you ask well because the plot wascompletelypredictable and the author doesn t mind using language as an embelishment to even the simpest statments Also there was much making out than I would like, even though nothing worse happened It was enjoyable to read this, unfortunatly after I finished it I thought that there was really not much point to have waded through all of the language and akward make out scenes SPOILERS I knew from the beginning that Sam was a great guy, thoughtful and interesting, and that Connor was a jerk who had nothing but sports and lust on his mind It was all one big waiting period for me to see how soon the thickish herione would come to the same conclusion The step mother was annoyingt than truely wicked and the step sisters wre just typical fluffy headed teenage girls Yes they were fashion concious and rude, but they were hardly evil The
Two, depicting underage drinking as normal is not okay with me and there was SO MUCH Sure the wrong guy in the story is the one who got smashed on Wild Turkey and Jack Daniels, but the good guy still drinks wine casually and all the gi
