Mattie likes Ella, but she's very conflicted about her. She's jealous of Ella because she's a beautiful, blond cheerleader who is popular with everyone at their elite, private school, teachers and students alike. Yet Ella is anything but conceited. In fact, she's practically a saint, constantly involved in good causes, and kind and supportive of everyone, especially Mattie. Ella's major flaw as far as Mattie is concerned is that, ever since the end of their junior year, Ella has been dating Jake Kingston, a boy that Mattie considers Ella's male counterpart. He's equally gorgeous, popular and kind to everyone he meets, and Mattie intellectually realizes that Jake and Ella are made for each other. But what her mind knows, her heart refuses to accept, because Mattie has been hopelessly in love with Jake since she was nine years old.
I am a huge fan of romantic comedy, and this is an utterly outstanding example of that genre. The humor comes from the wit of the heroine, and the hilarious repartee between her and Jake. I love them both.Read more ›
I loved Mattie and the shower incident was awesome (and you'll have to read it to figure out what that is...) The romance was so sweet.
A clean read.
Sariah Wilson captured the back-biting, insecure, hormone-driven, clique-riddled high school atmosphere so perfectly you'd think she never grew up. I dare you not to laugh as you read this witty and oh, so, romantic story.
The book has a very contemporary feel, with a good, steady voice that leaves readers rooting for Mattie. She can't get over the fact that Jake's every move leaves her melting inside, even when he acts like a jerk. After being forced to work on a school project together and running opposite one another for Class President, she learns a lot more about him and starts seeing Jake as a real human being. Even Ella becomes multi-faceted. At first, she's a stereotype, and I wanted to hate her, especially because I was seeing her through Mattie's eyes. But as the relationship between Ella and Mattie evolves, so do my feelings about Ella. I wound up really changing my opinion about a lot of character's by the book's end.
THE UGLY STEPSISTER was a light, fast read full of fun. I read it in one sitting, and really enjoyed the voice Sariah Wilson created for her characters. She mixed her elements well, and while the book isn't heavy on substance, it isn't meant to be and works exactly as intended. The character development is strong, and I liked the way family relationships were handled in a believable way. While I would have liked to see the book be a little longer, and therefore deeper, I still enjoyed reading it and would pick up another book from Wilson in the future.
This was a very nice and light book that I enjoyed reading. It's not the usual story where a female protagonist is so shy that she's only able to glance at her crush from afar, on the contrary! Mattie has no problem to say exactly what she thinks of Jack. Even though she as a hard time breathing and can't stop staring when he is near, even when he uses his most radiant smile, if she doesn't want to, or thins he's doing something he shouldn't, she says so. And that's something Jack never has encountered before ^^ And something I really liked a lot ^^
This book also features one of the nicest sisters ever. What Ella isn't willing to do for Mattie! That's why I wasn't exactly thrilled at the beginning when Mattie gives her list of Grievances. The things she said... One good conversation with Ella and most of her Grievances would probably have been solved. On the other hand, I have a great sis myself, so I also understood a bit how she felt ;) . Still, talking and explaining how you feel is essential in any relationship. Therefore I was glad to read that Mattie finally realizes this too. Ella is a very sweet and über nice gal and that's just the way she is. It's not something she's doing deliberately, it's in her blood. She's born with it. And that should not make you keep her at a distance. So I was glad to see that the two sister grew closer and closer ^^
Mattie, too is a great character to read about. She's got lots and lots of great remarks and one liners. And made me giggle quite a lot throughout the book. Her mind is a great place to be ^^ I also admired her for going against Jake instead of just giving in. And she really persevered!Read more ›
