Overview

Sixteen and a geek. Delores Chimayo wants to cross over to the other side. Pretty, popular, and a social success is everything she's not. And now she has a plan, ten steps to gain stardom and erase geekdom. But even the best made plans can take some disastrous turns and come out in a way never expected.

Maybe that's because she has a few working against her. A stepmom, who Delores secretly calls Cruella, seems to criticize her every move; a sister, Eileen, a preppy cheerleader who at thirteen has already had four boyfriends; and Sheila Thompson, the queen of snobs. She will stop at nothing to gain popularity, and that includes stomping out the competition like Delores.

Adding to outside distractions is her home life that's far from idyllic. Delores' dad is doing rescue work thousands of miles away in Ecuador. Her mother passed away when Delores was only twelve. That leaves Grandma Jordan and Aunt Gloria in her corner. They serve up plenty of support.

Somehow, with friends like Trey, Lucy, and Penelope, Delores manages to work through her plan, tweaking and adjusting details along the way. Venturing on the other side doesn't turn out to be as sweet a victory as Delores might have guessed, but there are attractive points. Like Griffin Montgomery, the hottie who every girl, including Sheila, would love to have as a boyfriend.

It's a duel between the geeks and the populars. Eventually, Delores has to decide what is important enough to fight for and manage to find a happily-ever-after ending in Cinderella Geek, a modern-day fairy tale for teens.

    Fun and Entertaining Teen Novel

    With a refreshing change from the vampire craze, Cinderella Geek tells the story of a teen girl who feels like she needs a do-over and thinks becoming popular will make her happy. Of course, she has a plan. Problem is, not everyone and everything in her life wants to cooperate. It's clean, it's fun, it's a heart-warming story with lots of loveable characters, and some not so loveable. The writing is smooth and easy. The story has all the elements of what teens enjoy ... but without the vampires! It's down to earth and the issues of teen pressure, self-esteem, and just wanting to fit in make this easy for teens to relate to. Throwing in a bit of romance with a Prince Charming and the author has created a great Cinderella story!
