The ideal L.A. fairy tale for fans of Once Upon a Time and L.A. Candy, from the author of Geek Charming.

Prom fever has infected LA--especially Cindy's two annoying stepsisters, and her overly Botoxed stepmother. Cindy seems to be the only one immune to it all. But her anti-prom letter in the school newspaper does more to turn Cindy into Queen of the Freaks than close the gap between the popular kids and the rest of the students. Everyone thinks she's committed social suicide, except for her two best friends, the yoga goddess India and John Hughes-worshipping Malcolm, and shockingly, the most popular senior at Castle Heights High and Cindy's crush, Adam Silver. Suddenly Cindy starts to think that maybe her social life could have a happily ever after. But there's still the rest of the school to deal with. With a little bit of help from an unexpected source and a fabulous pair of heels, Cindy realizes that she still has a chance at a happily ever after.

I picked up this book because I thought it would be a witty retelling of Cinderella. I could not have been more wrong. Cindy Ella is probably one of the least likeable protagonists I have ever read. She complains about anything and everything, has a startling lack of self-awareness, and completely fails to be anything more than an entitled rich girl who thinks she's better than everyone else. She claims to be a feminist, but then spends the entire book criticizing and judging other girls for their choices and lifestyles. Furthermore, this books relies heavily on stereotypes, specifically of gay people and minorities, and doesn't really produce anything new or worthwhile. The plot was clich├ęd and didn't bring anything new to the table. All of the so-called "plot twists" I predicted chapters in advance. Still, I gave this book a whole star because it at least kept me reading until the end.

This was one of my absolute favorite cause it really is inspiring to see how the main character cindy looks at life i just loved all the fun her and her friends encountered just funny and humor i loved it especially that you should never change yourself for others ever it's best just to be yourself and be proud of it.

Cute & sweet, good for a quick read, but that's about it. Cures boredom. Unfortunately, some parts are devastatingly predictable.
