Well i request this from netgalley and i got it for review. It's a retelling of Cinderella, I'm pretty sure you guys all know the fairy tale story :) I love love re tellings. And this one is one of them. It got published a few years ago soo yeah. I was definitely hooked to this book. I couldn't even put this book down. It took me two days to read it since I was reading other books too. I can totally feel like characters madness. This book makes me mad in a good way. I totally HATE the stepmother.
So it's about a girl name Lucy. Her mother died when she was really young and after a couple of years. Her father re marries and they have to move into the stepmother's house. She lives in the basement, the freak?! Anyways, she's not popular at school.
Everyone.. I mean everyone likes this guy, Conner Pearson. He's the hottest guy in high school and he's single. Suddenly one day Lucy talks about Basketball and Conner overhear her talking. Then he join the conversion and they both starts liking each other. After that day, Conner and Lucy started dating. Then everyone starts noticing her and wanting to be friends. Lucy believes that Conner is her prince.
Her stepmother is soooo annoying UGH. She's like 'I want this...Oooo I want this too' It makes me mad! It's weird since i never felt mad about a book before. And her dad believes everything her stepmother says. She twist everything Lucy said. Her dad is sooooooooooo freaking blind -_____- I hate how she has to hold in her anger every time she gets 'in trouble' by her stepmother. But I do like how they treat her at the end.
Lucy loves drawing. So does her mother. She's in art class and she's the second best in the class. The best is Sam Wolff, he's the type of guy who doesn't talk at all, but that's at first. Lucy thought he was mad and stuff but after what he did to her, which i'm not going to tell you because i don't want to spoil it :) Sam and Lucy has a friend relationship......kinda.
I think you should totally read this book! :)

Publishers Weekly, 2005-12-05 Kantor's (Confessions of a Not It Girl) modern Cinderella story has clever touches and adds a twist. After her father's marriage, Lucy is forced to live with her stepmother and two stepsisters on Long Island while he wraps up work back in California. When she inadvertently attracts the attention of Connor, the cutest senior jock at school, she goes from friendless to popular. But Lucy begins to realize she and Connor have nothing in common beyond their love of basketball; she doesn't connect with him the way she does with artist Sam. Meanwhile, her stepmother treats Lucy like a maid and even gets her in trouble with her dad. The author has some fun updating Cinderella: Lucy has to work taking coats and carrying dishes at her stepmother's dinner party, and instead of the ball, this novel culminates at the prom. (The frame allows for some funny lines, too, including the quote that also serves as the book's title.) Readers will likely think Connor's interest in her seems superficial, so it may come as little surprise when Lucy tries to picture herself "slow dancing with my perfect prince," and sees Sam instead. Her family problems resolve a bit easily, but there are some magical moments here, and Lucy comes across as a strong heroine. Ages 12-up. (Sept.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
