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.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was just really fun and funny teen chick lit 4.5 stars Cindy is a 15-year old, with a stepmother and two stepsisters who are incredibly superficial. With the prom coming soon, her entire school is obsessed with that alone. Cindy takes a stand against the prom and writes a letter to the school newspaper about it, and if she wasn’t enough of an outcast before, she is then… But, she has two best friends, the hippie-like, India, and the gay Malcolm to help her through it all, as well as her online friend BklynBoy. This was just really fun and funny teen chick lit, if there’s such a thing! I loved it! It’s another one that made me feel like a teenager again, going through all the teenage angst that Cindy went through. I loved Malcolm and India. Loved the ending, too!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Predictable But Great I liked this book it was extremely predictable and the events were highly unlikely to ever happen but at the same time it was really funny, really light-hearted and just an enjoyable read. The characters were well developed and I definitely recommend this novel.
