Cindy Ella is a witty sort of "anti fairy tale." In this book the main characters name is Cindy Ella, which is a very ironic name for this teen. She lives with two stepsisters and an overly Botoxed stepmother, her father is always working and never home. However, unlike the real Cinderella, her blended family is trying to get her to the ball, but Cindy is NOT going for it, she has sent in a letter to the school newspaper that is 100% against prom. Has she committed social suicide, or has she caught the attention of her prince charming?

Text to World:
Cindy-Ella is a story about a teenage protester with strong opinions who is strongly against prom, believing that it put too much stress on girls, and that it was held for all of the wrong reasons, making girls want to live up to their stereotypes of sex symbols. In today’s society some girls do feel as if they have to dress and act a certain way to be accepted, and now there are girls who are standing up to make a change in some places around the world.
