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?

Grade 7 Up—After attending a variety of schools, Jess Parker, 16, is an expert at blending in. However, when she transfers to Mt. Sterling High and takes Lexy Steele's cheerleading spot, Lexy's wrath makes her life unbearable. After standing up to her on behalf of another bullied student, Jess comes to the attention of the most popular girls at school. Soon she is initiated into a secret society of women called the Cinderella Society. When Jess joins her local chapter of the Cindys, she also joins a vast international group that includes many of the most powerful women in the world. The mission of the Cindys is to take down their opposing group, the Wickeds, and protect the rest of the regular population, or the Reggies. The local chapter of the Wickeds is led by Lexy, of course. When Jess joins the Cindys, she is at first only interested in the fabulous makeover that she will get and the opportunity to come to the attention of Ryan Steele, Lexy's brother and the resident hot guy at school. In time, she becomes more invested in protecting the Reggies and taking down the Wickeds. While her move into the elite stratosphere of high school is sudden, the characters are multidimensional and the plot is well paced. This story will appeal to girls who dream of becoming accepted within their own schools. Some elements are not fully explained here, but may be explained in the planned sequel.—Laura Amos, Newport News Public Library, VA
