The Cinderella Society by Kay Cassidy

Jess Parker is just a sixteen year old girl.  She doesn't have any friends since her archenemy makes everyone at her school hate her for something she didn't even do.  But then she gets a once in a lifetime chance: the chance to join the Cinderella Society, a secret club with members that are some of the most popular girls in her school.  She's even more excited when she finds out makeovers are one of the first deals of business.

But then the Wickeds, who just happen to be led by Jess' archenemy, start targeting innocent girls at their high school.  Jess is finding herself apart of a centuries old battle between good and evil.  The Cindys need Jess on a special assignment... but are the Cindys worth destroying the life she always thought she had?

I loved this book.  Cassidy created a very original book with a whole new world.  At first, you're wondering where the book is going to.  Jess seems like just a normal girl with nothing going on until she gets the invitation.

After Jess gets the invitation and gets into the Cindys, however, it's almost like you're on information overload.  If I could change one thing about this book, I would make it a little more clear.  There were a few parts I had to read through two or three times before I understood what was going on, because there's just so much going on.

Jess is a very relatable character.  Many of the decisions Jess made, I would've made myself.  I could see where she was coming from on a lot of things.  I could see her being a teenager that went to my school, she was just that realistic.

Overall, Cassidy has created a wonderful, different novel.  I'm anxiously awaiting the sequel which is coming out in spring of next year... which is too far away! Grade: A.
