Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister is not just your average Cinderella story. When Ruby and April’s mother remarries, the girls realise that their new step-sister Cindy is not the sibling they’d hoped for. In a bid to get the girls back for ‘ruining her family’, Cindy and her friends set out to publicly humiliate Ruby whilst dashing her chances with the school’s own ‘Prince Charming’.
The story revolves around the impacts of social media and the positive and negative affects it can have on its users. This modern Cinderella story with a twist shows us that we shouldn’t always believe everything we read online and that beauty is only skin deep.
