The Ugly Sister

by Jane Fallon

The Ugly Sister Synopsis

The bestselling author of Getting Rid of Matthew and My Sweet Revenge tells the story of a woman living in her sister's shadow. When it comes to genes, life is a lottery . . . Abi knows that all too well, having spent her life in the shadow of her beautiful, glamorous older sister Cleo. Headhunted as a model at sixteen, Cleo has been all but lost to Abi for twenty years. So when Abi is invited to spend the summer with her sister's perfect family, she says yes. Maybe Cleo is finally as keen as Abi to regain their childhood closeness? But Abi is in for a shock. Soon she's left in charge of her two spoilt nieces and her handsome, unhappy brother-in-law. As she moves into her sister's life, a cuckoo in the nest, Abi wrestles with uncomfortable feelings. Could having beauty, wealth and fame lead to more unhappiness than not having them? Who in the family really is the ugly sister? Praise for Jane Fallon: 'Intelligent, edgy and witty' Glamour 'Smart, sassy and dark' Heat 'Compulsively readable' Daily Mail
