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?

I really enjoyed the book!! It is a great example of girl power and shows how you can truly make a difference in society. It also teaches how to find your own style and be true to yourself. FIVE STARS!!!
Also,tot those who are unaware, she is relaunching the series because before she could publish book 2, she somehow lost the rights to the book.They will be split into 4 books with even more details. The first two are currently available!

I didn't like this book at all. In fact, I didn't even want to finsish it, but I did, though it was terrible. Maybe it's just me, and not the book at all, but I mean I love Cinderella and princessey type things, but this book just didn't work.

Reasons why this book doesn't work for me; 1. Everything was too jumbled up to make any sense. 2. The characters are very obnoxious. 3. The author was trying too hard to make this some super high-tech spy book.

This book was amazing. It's all about good vs. evil and the daily dramas of boy-trouble. Every time i changed the pages it was always exciting for me to wonder what was going to happen next.

Each and every page is packed with a minimum of 14 pop culture references. Add that to the terms for the Cinderella Society like "Cindys" and "Wickeds" (and their boyfriends the "Charmings" and "Villains") and this book is barely readable. I liked the idea of a secret society at first, but then it got too over the top, and as I was nearing the end I noticed there was still a lot of points left to be resolved, which I guess is why there'll be a sequel. If the characters were a bit better and if the Cinderella Society storyline was built up a bit steadier then this could have been the start to a great series.
