Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

R. seemed okay at first. She invited me and Dad over for dinner at her Upper West Side apartment, and we spent the first part of the evening just standing around and watching her cook. R. was mesmerizing; she swept around the kitchen in her silk robes and purple eye shadow, stirring bubbling pots of marinara sauce and bending down every few seconds to kiss Godot, her Yorkshire terrier. Dad was charmed by her, I could tell. She was beautiful and funny and she kept singing lines from different musicals. Dad would say, "The Pajama Game, right?" and she'd shriek, "YES! EXACTLY!" and then he'd sip his beer in this pleased-with-himself way. And it was nice she'd invited me. I guess it was like their first date, so it was a pretty cool move for her to say, "Why don't you bring your daughter?" It made her seem easygoing, sweet, kid-loving. Not at all like a crazy, jealous psychopath, right? Wrong.

Synopsis:

Stepdaughters of the world, unite!

Synopsis:

Three girls have something in common with their fairytale sisters--they are the stepdaughters of three very evil stepmothers. They think they are alone in their unhappiness until they arrive at a posh boarding school in Massachusetts, where they will plot their revenge. But first, they have to meet.

Synopsis:

We all know the stories of Cinderella, Snow White, and Rapunzel.  But have you ever heard of Alice Bingley-Beckerman, Reena Paruchuri, or Molly Miller?  Of course you havent.  Not yet.  What these girls have in common with their fairy tale sisters is this:  they are the stepdaughters of three very evil stepmothers.  And theyre not happy about it.  They think they are alone in their unhappiness until they arrive at Putnam Mount McKinsey, a posh boarding school located in lovely rural Massachusetts.  Here is where they will plot their revenge.  But first they have to meet.

 

In her first novel, Lily Archer tells a knowing, wickedly funny story about how friendship just may turn out to be more happily-ever-after than family.
