If I Have a Wicked Stepmother, Where's My Prince?


If I Have a Wicked Stepmother, Where’s My Prince?

5 out of 5 stars

ALL AGES 12+

If Lucy Norton has two evil stepsisters and a wicked stepmother, where’s her prince? She keeps telling herself that her fairy tale will involve the popular Connor Pearson. Then she finds herself noticing, Connor Pearson knows who I am. Connor takes an interest in her and now everyone at Glen Lake knows her. Some even become her friend. With prom coming up, Lucy starts to realize … maybe Connor isn’t the one she wants, maybe it’s that quite boy in her art class. Trying to forget about Sam with one of Connor’s perfect kisses, Lucy finally knows. But can she still get a happy ending like Cinderella when her life is in pieces?

If I Have a Wicked Stepmother, Where’s My Prince? is now one of my favorite books. Author Melissa Kantor’s understanding of the life of a teenage girl is brilliant and accurate in so many ways. The writing is more than just phenomenal, it’s … the best. The ending was predictable, but at the same time, surprising. The plot and characters were simple and developed throughout the story. Filled with humor and wonderful references, this book is on the top of my Recommendation List. If you’re 13 and want to read something fun or 30 and want to relax with a good read, pick up this book. I guarantee you’ll love it.

(If you find a copy of this book, make sure to look at page 178. It’s one of my favorites.)
