Kat (Laura Marano) lives with her stepmother (Johannah Newmarch) and her stepsisters (Lillian Doucet-Roche, Chanelle Peloso). They treat Kat badly and Kat tries her best to keep her head down until she can get out of there. She works at a Christmas fair as an elf together with her best friend Isla (Isabella Gomez), owned by the Wintergarden family. When a new guy starts working as the Christmas fair Santa, Nick (Gregg Sulkin), he and Kat hit it off. But Kat doesn’t know that Nick is actually Dominic Wintergarden and Nick doesn’t know that he already had a – to her – mortifying encounter with Kat. When Kat’s stepmother starts plotting to get at the Wintergarden fortune, things turn even more complicated for them.

A Cinderella Story: Christmas Wish is cute, though it will most likely appeal more to actual teens or tweens than adults who also like YA stuff (like me). It didn’t exactly blow me away, but it’s okay.
