Overview

A fresh and funny twist on Snow White from the author of Cindy Ella and Geek Charming! The ideal L.A. fairy tale for fans of Once Upon a Time and L.A. Candy

Simone never saw herself as the "cute girl"--she was always the chunky smartmouth. But after a year of avoiding her wicked almost-stepmonster through Zumba class, Simone's now sporting a whole new retro style. And people keep acting oddly. One thing: her stepmonster seems to be trying to accidentally kill her, or at least fatten her back up. And so when Simone's brother offers to let her move in with him and his six roommates for the summer, Simone jumps at the chance for some normalcy. Only living with seven very different college boys isn't exactly going to help her land her very own happily ever after . . .

Editorial Reviews

Snow White has a new twist. It's true that Robin Palmer's Wicked Jealous features a very evil stepmonster, but her devilish plans aren't limited to homicide; she's also trying to refatten the sympathetic Simone so that she will relinquish whatever social standing that she has recently found. And Simone/Snow White isn't waiting idly by for any happenstance Prince Charming: She's moved into a house with her brother and six male friends! A trade paperback and NOOK Book original from the author of Geek Charming.

When I first saw this book and read the teaser, I thought, alright, might be worth the look. Boy, was I disappointed. For the record, this is not the first modernized fairy tale I have read or for that matter, film I have seen. This book was disappointing. There are several things that seem to bog this story down. First off, the prologue was unnecessary, and when it connected to the point in the story, it wasn't the same. A prologue does one or two things, connects to a future part of the story, or fills in a few blanks to ensure the reader isn't lost when they begin the story. The villain in the tale should have a motive that makes sense. Ok, I could the "stepmom" to be, marrying a wealthy and older man to set herself up for life. When you modernize a fairytale, things can be altered without ruining the tale. I mean really be jealous of someone who would soon be going to college, and then be out of her life for the most part. She's so narcissistic that a teenager, is a threat to her, seriously? She lives in Hollywood, a lot of pretty people there. Or change her reason for wanting "Snow White" out of the way. When would her Dad have time to date? Workaholics can't make time to keep a serious relationship. Look at Ryan Seacrest. He's got money, but why would the "Evil Queen" not go after someone higher up on the ladder of Hollywood success? Way too many cultural references. I don't need titles for everything. Leave things to the imagination. Some refernces can add to a tale, too many just become annoying. Seven dwarfs. Why have seven when five were focused on? The story was too long? Might make a semi-decent movie. An alright read, but nothing more. Will not read any more of her books.
