Waiting On Wednesday (#6)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where we discuss books we can't wait to read! This weeks choice is...

The Stepsister's TaleTitle: The Stepsisters Tale
Author: Tracy Barrett
Pub Date: June 24th, 2014
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Series: No


What really happened after the clock struck midnight?

Jane Montjoy is tired of being a lady. She's tired of pretending to live up to the standards of her mother's noble family-especially now that the family's wealth is gone and their stately mansion has fallen to ruin. It's hard enough that she must tend to the animals and find a way to feed her mother and her little sister each day. Jane's burden only gets worse after her mother returns from a trip to town with a new stepfather and stepsister in tow. Despite the family's struggle to prepare for the long winter ahead, Jane's stepfather remains determined to give his beautiful but spoiled child her every desire. 

When her stepfather suddenly dies, leaving nothing but debts and a bereaved daughter behind, it seems to Jane that her family is destined for eternal unhappiness. But a mysterious boy from the woods and an invitation to a royal ball are certain to change her fate...

From the handsome prince to the evil stepsister, nothing is quite as it seems in Tracy Barrett's stunning retelling of the classic Cinderella tale.

 Why am I excited?
Yay another fairy tale retelling! As I've said  a million times before I cannot get enough of these. This one looks pretty special because for once we get too see the sisters side of the story. Also that one part at the end where it says " nothing is quite as it seems in Tracy Barrett's stunning retelling of the classic Cinderella tale."   I'm just dying to know what that twist could possibly be!
What are you waiting for this week? Leave a link and a comment below :)
