When fifteen year old sophomore Cindy Ella Gold sends a letter to her school newspaper about the way the upcoming prom is setting a bad example and only serving to widen the gap between the popular and unpopular kids, she could never imagine the fall out. Suddenly, the practically invisible Cindy turns way too visible.

Everyone seems to have prom fever, except for Cindy Ella. Her two older step-sisters are battling for designer dresses, her step-mother thinks she's acting out with all of her anti-prom behavior and now it seems even her two best friends are joining in the frenzy by going. But Cindy still isn't interested in going. And apparently, neither is one of her crushes, hottie senior Adam Silver, since no one knows if he's even asked someone to go to the prom with him. Could he be the one senior her letter swayed not to go to the prom?

CINDY ELLA is a very humorous, very entertaining read. Quite the page-turner! I loved the part where Cindy Ella is working at the yoga studio's front desk with Phoolendu (a hilarious character on his own) and Cindy's big crush Adam Silver walks in. The scene had me literally laughing out loud at poor Cindy's situation. And her reaction of just trying to hide was plain hilarious. Anyone who's ever crushed on someone and run into them will totally relate to this awkward moment.

Robin Palmer considers the day she found out that CINDY ELLA had sold to a publisher as the happiest day of her life so far. "As far as I'm concerned, it's the perfect fairy tale ending!"
