Team Owl Review: Cinderella Society by Kay Cassidy

TITLE:     The Cinderella Society
AUTHOR:   Kay Cassidy

When the Prom Queen becomes your fairy godmother…

Sixteen year old outsider, Jess Parker, gets the chance of a lifetime: an invitation to join a secret society of popular girls dedicated to defeating the mean girls of the world. The Cinderella Society guides all new recruits through its top secret ultimate life makeover. It’s all part of preparing them to face down the Wickeds and win. Determined not to let the Cindys down, Jess dives in with a passion. Finally, a chance to belong and show the world what she’s made of.

… be careful what you wish for.

Jess’s transformation wins her the heart of her dream crush and a shot at uber-popularity. Until the Wickeds–led by Jess’s arch enemy–begin targeting innocent girls in their war against the Cindys, and Jess discovers the real force behind her exclusive society. It’s a high stakes battle of good vs. evil, and the Cindys in power need Jess on special assignment. When the mission threatens to destroy her dream life come true, Jess is forced to choose between living a fairy tale and honoring the Sisterhood… and herself.

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

In the book The Cinderella Society, Jess Parker survives high school by staying invisible. Jess is new to the school and doesn’t have any close friends, because she stole Lexy Steele’s spot on the cheerleading squad. By stealing the spot, she and Lexy became enemies.

 One day, Jess gets an invitation to join the Cinderella society, a secret club run by some of the popular girls. The goal of the Cinderella society is to get girls to feel good about themselves. There is also a rival club called the Wickeds, and the Wickeds goal is to treat innocent girls badly just to get what they want.

 It’s a battle between Good and Evil, and the Cinderella society needs   Jess more than ever.  

I think the book was an awesome book because its genre was some realistic fiction mixed with a little bit of a fairytale.

 I think that this book is considered a girly book, for young adults.

Teacher note: I absolutely LOVE this book!!!!!

  1. Definitely a girly book with the pink and glass slipper on the cover! I remember having mixed feelings about this book when I first read it but I kind of want to give it another try since I adore Cinderella stories so much.
