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

Sixteen year old Jess Parker has always been an outsider. So when she receives an invitation to join The Cinderella Society, a secret society of the most popular girls in school, it's like something out of a fairy tale. Swept up by the Cindys' magical world of makeovers, and catching the eye of her Prince Charming, Jess feels like she's finally found her chance to fit in.

Then the Wickeds--led by Jess's arch-enemy--begin targeting innocent girls in their war against the Cindys, and Jess discovers there's more to being a Cindy than reinventing yourself on the outside. She has unknowingly become part of a centuries-old battle of good vs. evil, and now the Cindys in charge need Jess for a mission that could change everything.

Overwhelmed, Jess wonders if The Cinderella Society made a mistake in choosing her. Is it a coincidence her new boyfriend doesn't want to be seen with her in public? And is this glamorous, secret life even what she wants, or will she risk her own happy ending to live up to the expectations of her new sisters?
The Cinderella Society is a little bit cliched, although the message and the way it is showed in the novel over powers the cliches. The message of this novel is shown through the secret society and normal high school life combined together, which makes it more believable and more realistic.

Jess, at the beginning is not as strong as in the end because she grows into an optimist who stands up for herself and her beliefs. She does not let Lexie and fear stop her from achieving her goal. Ryan, is not the usual YA love interest, instead, he encourages Jess even more through his actions.

With great characters, a positive message, The Cinderella Society is a great debut that will capture reader's attention.
