A Cinderella Society by Kay Cassidy




Summary: When the Prom Queen becomes your fairy godmother…

Sixteen year old outsider, Jess Parker, gets the chance of a lifetime: an invitation to join a secret society of popular girls dedicated to defeating the mean girls of the world. The Cinderella Society guides all new recruits through its top secret ultimate life makeover. It’s all part of preparing them to face down the Wickeds and win. Determined not to let the Cindys down, Jess dives in with a passion. Finally, a chance to belong and show the world what she’s made of.

… be careful what you wish for.

Jess’s transformation wins her the heart of her dream crush and a shot at uber-popularity. Until the Wickeds–led by Jess’s arch enemy–begin targeting innocent girls in their war against the Cindys, and Jess discovers the real force behind her exclusive society. It’s a high stakes battle of good vs. evil, and the Cindys in power need Jess on special assignment. When the mission threatens to destroy her dream life come true, Jess is forced to choose between living a fairy tale and honoring the Sisterhood… and herself.

What’s a girl to do when the glass slipper fits, but she doesn’t want to wear it anymore?

My Thoughts: When I first saw this book, I knew I must read it! I mean, come on, my name is Cindy so therefore I have to be a Cindy, right? Not to mention the cover is pink and has a high heel on it. Love the color pink! We are introduced to Jess who is just your average teenage girl who just blends into the scene. She's not popular but she's not unpopular either. She gets picked on and most of the time she just wants the day to end so she can get away from the bullies. She has a crush on Ryan, the popular guy she doesn't think she has a chance in the world with. He barely notices her and when he does she is making a fool out of herself.

Out of nowhere Jess gets an invitation to join a secret society; The Cinderella Society. Jess discovers herself more everyday being a part of this society. It actually means something to her. She learns to believe in herself and stick up for herself.

The first few pages, I wasn't sure if I was going to like this book. It seemed a little bit too girly for me and I wanted more romance. I wanted to get to know Ryan better. But once things got going I became engrossed in it and couldn't put it down. I really liked Jess and Ryan's relationship. They got to know each other slowly and I started to really like the attraction they shared. You also have to get used to the terms used such as Wickeds, Reggies, and Cindys.

Overall: Loved it by about page 50. The first few pages, you just have to get the lay of the land. It starts to flow nicely and you realize your already on page 200, hehe.

Cover: Love the cover most of all. Its gorgeous. Love the pinkness and the glass high heal!
