The Cinderella Society

The Cinderella Society
by Kay Cassidy


Jess Parker is always getting pushed around by a girl at her newest school. And the reason - she took her place on the cheerleading squad. Luckily, she's finally caught the eye of some of the nicer cheerleaders and they take her under their wing. Only, Jess finds out that they're not just being nice - they're a part of a secret society called The Cinderella Society. They train girls to become more confident and fight against the mean girls called the Wickeds. Will Jess be able to gain confidence enough to help defeat the Wickeds AND snag the boy she likes?

I have to say, this was the perfect book for me to read during Valentine's day week. I've been putting off the review because I really enjoyed this book and don't think I can suitably tell you why - but I'll attempt it. Jess is a sixteen year old girl who isn't sure of herself and wants to just meld in, but she has the potential to be a great person and even a leader. I love watching her transform and really starting to see what is inside of her and how to let that out. I loved the aspect of the secret society and the battles of the wits between her and her arch nemesis. And can I even talk about the romance? I'm so glad it wasn't perfect, that there was a bit of a trial to matching up Jess with her Prince Charming and trying to figure out if he really was the guy for her.

So, between the conflict, the fantastic characters, and the overall fun this book was to read - I'd say you have a fantastic book. Yes, it's chick-lit - not my usual type of thing, but it takes it farther and deeper. It still overall has a feeling of light-heartedness, but there's so much more. And can I say Secret Society any more.. I just love secrets, don't you?

  1. Every once in a while, I get the fever for the flavor. No, NOT Pringles-- I'm talking Chick Lit! (<--Like deep-breathing in the Lifetime movie channel, now and again, only on printed pages instead LOL!) The Cindella Society sounds perfect for just those occasions! Thanks for the review.

    Comment = 1 more contest entry = Thank you very much and YAY!

  8. I really need to get this one. I have seen so many good reviews about it. I also am frequently at a loss for words when a book has that wow factor on me. It takes me a while to write reviews anyway, but when I really am smitten by a book it seems it takes longer.
