Cutely disturbing/ Disturbingly cute, if a bit out-of-focus

In this book, the evil stepmother was more than a trope. She was Charlie’s perfect scapegoat for everything that has been going wrong with his life. She becomes such a source of anger that Charlie starts disengaging from his friends and family. And in this festering anger, Charlie’s nightmares find power to trap him in their world while they break into his.

It’s not dazzlingly original, but it’s a good plot. Unfortunately, the writers decided it wasn’t good enough.
