Waiting on Wednesday (5): The Cinderella Society by Kay Cassidy

This weeks pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" is:

By: Kay Cassidy
Publication Date: April 2010

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 girl power society 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 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?

I'm really looking forward to reading this. The unique take on Cinderella caught my attention and I love the idea of the "Cindys" and the "Wickeds"! This is also a series, with book #2 coming out in 2011.

Waiting on Wednesday is an event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
