"Hot girls get the fairy tales. No one cares about the stepsisters' story. Those girls don't get a sweet little ending; they get a lifetime of longing

Imogen Keegen has never had a happily ever after–in fact, she doesn’t think they are possible. Ever since her mother’s death seven years ago, Imogen has pulled herself in and out of therapy, struggled with an “emotionally disturbed” special ed. label, and loathed her perma-plus-sized status.

When Imogen’s new stepsister, the evil and gorgeous Ella Cinder, moves in down the hall, Imogen begins losing grip on the pieces she’s been trying to hold together. The only things that gave her solace–the theatre, cheese fries, and her best friend, Grant–aren’t enough to save her from her pain this time.

While Imogen is enjoying her moment in the spotlight after the high school musical, the journal pages containing her darkest thoughts get put on display. Now, Imogen must resign herself to be crushed under the ever-increasing weight of her pain, or finally accept the starring role in her own life story.

And maybe even find herself a happily ever after."

Why?:

* Because I am a sucker for fairy tale retellings.
* Because this books sounds good enough, even with out reason #1

What is your Waiting On Wednesday pick this week?

    1. I'm not usually into contemporary books. So what better way to branch out, than one with a fairy tale theme?

  8. I LOVE retellings!! I think they're my favourite kind of all time, because just the awesomeness and clever twists authors think up?! I'm usually blown away. x) I hadn't heard of this before now, so definitely adding it. :))
