Cinderella is Evil by Jamie Campbell

History is told from one person’s perspective. Sometimes they don’t get it right.
Ugly Stepsister Anna has wrongly been accused of being mean and evil. Now it is time she got the opportunity to tell her side of the story.
With Cinderella so perfect and wonderful, it is no wonder Anna feels ugly in comparison. Dealing with bullies, a grumpy mother and the death of her step-father, Anna is at her wits end.
When the Prince’s ball approaches, Anna is told she must find a husband to save the family fortune. Attending with her sisters, the sulky Prince Charming only has eyes for Cinderella.
With the burden of being the only one to unite her step-sister with the Prince, will Anna act as cupid? Or will she protect Cinderella from the arrogant Charming?
A charming twist to the story of Cinderella, told completely from the point of view of the Ugly Step-Sister.

This was a short but very entertaining read with the feel of a fairy-tale to it…well, it is Cinderella so I suppose that  doesn’t come as a surprise now that I think about it.

Thumbs Up!
I really enjoyed this. Basically it is what if Cinderella enjoyed playing the martyr just so that she had a reason to hate her step-family, and what if the wicked step-mother was the way she was because the death of her husband (Cinderella’s father) broke her heart.

Anna was a lovely person and I wanted to hug her when she went out of her way to look out for Cinderella when she thought she had ran away from the prince the night of the ball because he had done something to her.

Thumbs Down!
This book was WAY to short. I would love it if one day the author decided to add two hundred more pages and turn it into a full length novel.

All in All!
An enjoyable and very quick read.
