Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister

Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister - Gregory Maguire Rating: To Come

Thank you to the publisher for hosting this book as a Goodreads giveaway, which I am excited to have won!

I am so excited to read this retelling for the classic Cinderella. Growing up, I'm 19 now, I loved Cinderella, probably my favorite Disney princess. She just had a humble way about her even in spite of being treated like a slave to her stepmother and evil stepsisters.

"Have Courage and Be Kind." is the quote I always associate with Cinderella. When you think about it, it has so much meaning and power.

But being that I'm older it would be interesting read Cinderella in the point of view of the stepsister(s). I am really excited to read this novel and soon! I wonder what moral I will take away from this retelling.

Full review coming soon!
