Everyone at exclusive Manderley Prep has the right clothes, the right car, and the right friends, which makes Cindy Ellis stand out like a sore thumb.

Attending Manderley on a scholarship is her ticket to a chance at an Ivy League school, where she can get as far away as she can from her demanding stepmother and two conniving stepsisters. She intends to stay focused on her studies. But when charming Italian exchange student Marco shows up, sh

I really enjoyed this short, Cinderella story. The characters were colorful and, mostly, realistic. Some of them were stereotypical but were essential to the plot of the story and added a lot of humor.

Not quite the ending I was expecting...

I liked this book a lot, although it is one of those cliché stories, but I liked how easy it was to read. I recommend this if you're not looking for a heavy reading, and just want to dive into a real-life story. (I wans't aware that this book was part of a series until I was almost done with it. Now I need to read the rest of the books..)
