"A brilliantly juicy Cinderella tale."--Heat Beautiful but broke student Polly and scheming social climber Alexa may have grown up in the same place, but they couldn't be more different. Polly's just fallen for Max, a handsome country vet. But Alexa can't be bothered with love--any guy with a pedigree will do, mind you, as long as he comes with a title, a mansion, and a family tiara. Alexa wiggles her way into friendship with Florrie, a clueless aristocrat who could support entire countries with her spare change. Suddenly the grandest doors swing open for Alexa, and a new life is so close she can taste it. Polly could care less about Max's money, but his mysterious habit of disappearing scares her. What's he hiding? Razor sharp in its wit, and as fresh as newlywed royals, Marrying Upreveals how sometimes a rags-to-riches story can rip a girl to shreds--and how sometimes the rewards of love aren't always what you expect. "Holden's tale of social snobbery and bare-faced ambition is a modern fairy tale that chimes perfectly with our post-Will and Kate world."--Glamour
