Imogen Keegen has never had a happily ever after–in fact, she doesn’t think they are possible. Ever since her mother’s death seven years ago, Imogen has pulled herself in and out of therapy, struggled with an “emotionally disturbed” special ed. label, and loathed her perma-plus-sized status.

When Imogen’s new stepsister, the evil and gorgeous Ella Cinder, moves in down the hall, Imogen begins losing grip on the pieces she’s been trying to hold together. The only things that gave her solace–the theatre, cheese fries, and her best friend, Grant–aren’t enough to save her from her pain this time.

While Imogen is enjoying her moment in the spotlight after the high school musical, the journal pages containing her darkest thoughts get put on display. Now, Imogen must resign herself to be crushed under the ever-increasing weight of her pain, or finally accept the starring role in her own life story.

And maybe even find herself a happily ever after.

Enhance the experience with the companion soundtrack, Imogen Unlocked, by the authoin!or's band, Wedding Day Rain."

Tati | 10171 comments I'll be a little late with that one, might start it tomorrow, as I still have to finish the one I'm reading now.

Arys (readeatlove) | 47 comments Hi Tati! I just finished too. And I definitely agree, I was expecting more out of it. I enjoyed the relationship between Imogen and Grant, and I also enjoyed the journey Imogen goes through, but I do agree Imogen was too insecure sometimes (but guess that can be understandable with all the stuff she is going through and her cruel stepsister, Carmella). I love the artwork thought the book. :)

After reading this book it kind of makes me want to read 'Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister' by Gregory Magiure.

Tati | 10171 comments Grant and Brice and Jonathan were really cute secondary characters! I also liked seeing her moments with her dad.
