Sixteen-year-old Jess Parker survives by staying invisible. After nine schools in ten years, she's come to terms with life as a perpetual new girl, neither popular nor outcast. At Mt. Sterling High, Jess gets the chance of a lifetime: an invitation to join The Cinderella Society, a secret club of the most popular girls in school, where makeovers are the first order of official business. But there's more to being a Cindy than just reinventing yourself from the outside, a concept lost on Jess as she dives tiara-first into creating a hot new look.
With a date with her popular crush and a chance to finally fit in, Jess's life seems to be a perfect fairy tale. That is until the Wickeds—led by Jess's archenemy—begin targeting innocent girls in their war against the Cindys, and Jess discovers her new sisterhood is about much more than who rules Mt. Sterling High School. It's a centuries-old battle of good vs. evil, and the Cindys need Jess on special assignment. But when the mission threatens to destroy her new dream life, Jess is forced to choose between this dream realized and honoring the Sisterhood. What's a girl to do when the glass slipper fits, but she doesn't want to wear it anymore?
Jess Parker has hit the high school lottery by being welcomed into Cinderella Society. Thank goodness for that because she just hit Lexy's radar. I loved the idea of this book. I think it is a great influence on a lot of teens. It shows what true friendship could mean. Jess Parker may still have some thing to over come but at heart you can tell she wants to do what's right. I still feel deep down that Lexy can't be ALL bad. I also have a feeling in the next series Jess may have her hands full. Especially dating Lexy's brother. What a fresh idea for girl empowerment. I plan on reading all the Cinderella Society books as they release.
