Mini Book Review: Cinderella is Evil ~ Jamie Campbell

Cinderella is Evil Rating: 5 Stars

From Goodreads:
      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.

My Review:
      I found this free on the kindle. The title doesn't match the sweet story inside the cover. I usually wouldn't have looked at something called Cinderella is Evil, but since this is a retelling of a fairytale, I went ahead and looked at it.
      This is a short story told from the point of view of one a Cinderella's stepsisters. In this version of the story, they are trying to be kind to Cinderella, but she is determined that they are wicked. Her stepsister, Anna, struggles to decide whether Prince Charming is good enough to wed Cinderella.
      In this fairytale, everybody gets their happy ending and lives Happily Ever After.
