Short Story Review: Cinderella is Evil by Jamie Campbell

Cinderella is evil

Description (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 short story on Amazon, the title intrigued me and made ​​me want to read it.

This is an interesting retelling of Cinderella from the POV of Anna (one of the stepsisters), while I was reading I felt sorry for this stepsister (here things were not easy for her).

My favorite part of the story was reading Anna’s opinion about Prince Charming.

Overall this was a quick read that enjoyed and I’d love to read more from this author.
